We wondered what would come from Yahoo’s acquisition of Summly earlier this months, and now we know (although it wouldn’t have been hard to work out), they have added tech from the original Summly’s app to their main application for iOS, allowing Yahoo to use Summly’s algorithms to deliver the same “deliver quick story summaries,” seen in the original app.

Yahoo have also included a new image mode that will show full screen images behind the content.

Version 3.0 of the Yahoo app will also add personalised stories allowing you to find you particular interests and follow those topics, there’s also new web and image search interfaces.

The updated app is available in the iTunes App Store for those in te US from today, there’s no news when it might make it to the UK however.
