App features 'Reading Sync' feature
As a part of its continuing revamp, Digg has released a version of its app for Apple's iPad. The social news site has also updated its iPhone app as well, bringing compatibility with the newest iPhone. Both apps bring improved performance, a streamlined user interface, and new reading features.
The biggest new addition to Digg's app is "Reading Sync." The feature allows Digg app users to continue reading an article uninterrupted when reading across multiple devices. The new version also brings the ability to share articles through text messaging.
Digg relaunched late in July with a version of its app for the iPhone. Digg once sat atop the social news world, but it was supplanted by rival sites and the rise of news sharing on services such as Facebook. In mid-July, the company abruptly announced that it had been bought by Betaworks, with many of its features spun off and sold to other buyers.
