Just around a month following its first major update, here comes Circa News with its second major update.

Circa, with its “innovative new way to get the news of the day in an easy-to-digest format,” has become one of my favorite news apps.

And I’m particularly delighted by the app’s latest update since it adds a new category that happens to be one of my preferred categories to read about. That new category is none other than Technology.

“With the addition of our first new category, we’re now covering the most important stories in the technology world,” says the Circa team. “We’re particularly excited about following stories about products & companies, and seeing what happens to them later on!” As am I, Circa. As am I.

Hyperlinks within stories are also included in the Technology category.

Apart from the new category, Circa’s new update introduces a new and improved sharing interface.

Now, you can share a Circa story via iMessage or text in addition to email, Twitter, and Facebook.

What’s more, network-specific sharing options are now in place for Facebook and Twitter. Just tap the gear icon in the social sharing screen to access the options.

For Facebook, you can specify the visibility of your post. And for Twitter, you can choose which account to tweet from.

Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of Circa News is available now in the App Store for free.
