Yahoo has released a new version of its iOS app to incorporate Summly’s summary technology.
Yahoo purchased Summly from 17-year-old developer Nick D’aloisio less than a month ago. D’aloisio’s app was based around an algorithm which summarized news stories for faster consumption. Yahoo’s iOS update, version 3.0, also brings new personalized story updates based on your interests. It also has new, freshly designed interface and a revamped search feature.
Yahoo’s new update epitomizes Yahoo’s push towards a better mobile user experience, although some argue that Yahoo has already slipped too far into irrelevance for this push to make a difference.
