Yahoo has redesigned and updated its iPhone app to integrate features from their recent acquisition of Summly.

The new Yahoo! app brings you the best of the web in a virtually endless stream of personalized stories. The more you use the app, the more relevant stories you'll start to see. The app’s redesign is complete with beautiful and modern touches - it’s fast and easy to use.

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer describes the improvements:

"Our mobile phones have opened up a window to the world, with the latest news, sports updates, and entertainment coverage right there in our pockets. Because consuming content is such a core part of our everyday lives, today we’re launching our new Yahoo! mobile app for iPhone. Beautifully designed with smaller screens in mind, the new Yahoo! is all about delivering the best of the web -- right on your phone.

The new Yahoo! mobile app is also smarter, using Summly’s natural-language algorithms and machine learning to deliver quick story summaries. We acquired Summly less than a month ago, and we’re thrilled to introduce this game-changing technology in our first mobile application. And, with the immersive imagery of our virtually endless newsfeed, the new Yahoo! app has both great technology and beautiful design front and center. Because searching for great content is also core to the Yahoo! experience, we’ve also improved the search experience with better video and image search."
