Yahoo! integrates Summly into iOS app

Yahoo! has launched an updated version of its iOS app featuring Summly integration, a new interface, and improved search options. Acquired by Yahoo! at the end of March for a supposed $30 million, Summly is a news aggregator that uses natural-language algorithms to create quick story summaries. These summaries are now provided to users in an endless news stream that has been designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod touch. Search is also said to be improved, both for video and images, giving users the option to narrow down searches to different categories and selecting only the topics that are of interest.

Netflix simplifies TV episode selection

Netflix 4.0, the latest version of the company's iOS video streaming app, has been released in the App Store. Offering a brand new episode selector tool for the iPad, the update looks to simplify the process of watching TV seasons. The tool can be accessed from the top right of the screen while watching a television show, and provides users with a list of additional episodes in the current season. From here users can also see the episode's title and a shot synopsis. The audio and subtitle selector has also been redesigned on both the iPhone and iPad, and numerous bugs have been resolved.
