Comprehensive and well organized, Yahoo! News Digest informs users across all verticals and interests in a unique and effective way. Each story is created from multiple sources to present the most essential pieces of information, known as “Atoms.” Atoms include key quotes, images, videos, stock tickers, maps, infographs, and Wikipedia excerpts, and more. The concept of efficient utility permeates all layers of the app. Background fetch, Silent Notification, Dynamic Binding and NSURLSessionDownloadTask all work in concert. Custom UIViewController, Core Animation, and CATransaction are leveraged to present content in a modern minimalist UI based on simplified modular elements.

Yahoo! News Digest was created by a 12 person team built from members of the Yahoo! Mobile and Emerging Products group in Sunnyvale, California. This group won an ADA last year for their iOS app, Yahoo Weather.
