Digg founder confirms development of iPhone app

updated 12:20 pm EDT, Mon October 5, 2009

To include auto-refreshing homepage

Kevin Rose, the founder of Digg.com, has confirmed the development of a Digg iPhone app in an interview held at a FOWA (Future of Web Apps) event in London. The interviewers were given a sneak-peak of the app prior to the talk. During discussion, Rose appeared surprised they had been able to view the app, which he then acknowledged.

The app will allow users to login and Digg stories, and should take advantage of iPhone scrolling features, as well as mini-permalink pages. The homepage of the app will update constantly, much like the Digg website.

Rose additionally suggests that a new version of the Digg website will be released soon, including new organizational tools that will make searches more category-oriented.

    Sloppy spelling--unprofessional

    It's "sneak-peek", not "sneak-peak".
