    As a software developer who is interested in quality apps that stand out on various app stores, I have come to love series of stellar apps Yahoo! has put out in the past few months. A particular app that still makes me take my android phone with me alongside my windows phone on my daily commute to work is the Yahoo News Digest app.

    In a nutshell, the Yahoo digest app curates and summarizes the most relevant new stories that are relevant to your region into a few Digest of about 7-10 stories which you can flip through within a few minutes. Digests are delivered in two editions on a daily basis, one in the morning at around 8:00 AM, the other at 6PM

    In the past month, I have been working on an un-official Windows Phone version so that users like myself who prefer to use windows phone as our primary phone can enjoy the App. The windows Phone version is now in a closed beta and I would ideally like to expand the number of users testing it from the 6 windows phone enthusiasts that I work with to about 100 users.

    If you would like to have access to the beta app, please sign up on the link below and I will provide access every 48 hours.
