Digg For iOS Gains New Dark Mode Plus Other Improvements
Digg for iOS has received a new update that essentially makes reading stories on the popular social news app faster and easier. For starters, articles in the newly updated universal app now load faster. Or so say the update's release notes. I'm not sure if it's just me, but sometimes articles don't even load at all when I tap through categories and sources in a story. Tapping though categories and sources in any story, by the way, is a newly added feature in Digg for iOS. But like I've said, this feature doesn't seem to be functioning properly at the moment. Perhaps it'll begin to work sooner or later, when the feature has had enough time to warm up to the app's code or something.

I'm inclined to do quite a bit of digital reading at bedtime, so Digg's new dark mode is sure to come in handy for me. Should you like to enable it too, just access the app's display settings and select the dark option. You can also select the auto option, which automatically adjusts between light and dark mode depending on your environment. Note, though, that the auto option requires your device's auto-brightness to be enabled. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later, the new version of Digg for iOS is available now in the App Store for free. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
