Updated Yahoo App Includes Summly Integration And More Personalization

Yahoo’s official app for iOS has received a noteworthy update. Version 3.0 includes Summly integration for the first time. The original Summly app was created by then 15-year-old Nick D’Alosio in 2011. It presented the news in less than 400 words. In March, Summly was purchased by Yahoo for a reported $30 million. After the announcement, Summly was pulled from the App Store. The updated Yahoo app uses Summly’s natural-language algorithms and machine to deliver news stories in a user’s feed. It also offers stories based on a user’s interests. Full Yahoo 3.0 app features include:
  • Personalized stories based on your interests
  • Beautiful article pages
  • Endless visual stream of stories
  • Summaries by Yahoo!
  • Ability to select topics you want more stories about
  • Revamped Web search experience
The free iPhone app is available in the App Store.
