It’s been a while since we’ve let you, the faithful Digg user, in on what we’ve been doing with our mobile apps. While we’re putting the finishing touches on a huge update to our Android app, here’s an update on what we’ve been building into the Digg iOS app.
- An Even Better Digg Deeper
We love Digg Deeper, and so do our users (not a Digg Deeper user? Go on and sign up. You really won’t be disappointed. No, seriously, I’ll wait…) Digg Deeper not only boils your Twitter feed down to an ever-evolving shortlist of the top stories and videos your friends are sharing, it also lets you easily see the Twitter conversation about them.
To make it a better experience to read and dive into — both on the web and in our iOS app — we’ve added more avatars, larger images, better typography and a better Tweet viewer.
- More Ways To Share
Our tools help you find great stories and videos, and take them with you wherever you go. Which is why, in addition to read-it-later services like Instapaper, Pocket and Readability, we support saving links to Pinboard, Delicious and Bitly, as well. You can even sign into these accounts using logins and passwords saved in 1Password.
- Better Notifications
To keep you up-to-date with what’s happening on Digg, we’ve added actionable push notifications and a great new slide down notification alerting you to new content. Our objective is to make sure you’re up to speed: no muss, no fuss.
- Much, Much More
Oh, and we’ve smashed bugs, improved scrolling speed, made it faster to load, added settings for the Digg Deeper Daily Digest emails, improved our Today Extension and more.
If you haven’t tried the Digg iOS app, you can, nay, should, download it in the App Store. And if you don’t want to take our word for it, take Apple’s: the Digg iOS app was just named a best iPad app in a whole bunch of countries around the world.
And just a heads up, we’re currently underway with a redesign and rewrite of large parts of the iOS app planned for early next year.
