After years of waiting, Digg.com’s much anticipated native iPhone application is now available in the app store: And it’s FREE.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Digg, it’s a user-driven news/information site that features online content from well-known, popular sites, to obscure blogs, posted and voted on by its users (users “digg” stories they like, thus determining the “value” of the site’s content). As a result, only the most popular content (stories with the most “diggs”) makes it to Digg’s front page. Click HERE for more info on Digg.com.
Speculation regarding the app turned to fervor, when Kevin Rose, Digg’s founder, mentioned it in an October 2009 interview (Slippsies!):
After downloading the app, I was relieved to find it a very good port of what Digg.com offers. It doesn’t offer everything the website does, (customization, video/photo categories, etc.) but it’s an awesome start!
