Digg is an immensely popular web site that makes it easy to home in on the best of the web and track down interesting sites in a huge number of categories. With the newly released iPhone app you can keep up to date with the latest news even when you are away from your computer.
You can browse through the most popular stories from the past 24 hours, view which posts are increasing in popularity or browse through the various categories that are available. Stories can be previewed to view additional information such as a summary and thumbnail without the need to load the entire post.
Particularly interesting posts can be saved for reading at a later time and the full Digg commenting system is available on your iPhone. In true social networking style, you can share posts you like via Twitter, Facebook or email.
Log into your Digg account and you have the option of Digging or burying stories and comments. Saved searches can be used to keep track of topics of interest and the app is a great improvement on the mobile version of the Digg web site. Whether you're looking for serious news or just a distraction from work, Digg has something to offer.
Digg's iPhone app has been a long time coming, but it was well worth the wait. Notable by its absence is the ability to post comments, but that aside, this is a great little app.
