Yahoo has today announced its new app for Android and iPhone, designed to personalise daily news for users.

Featuring 12 categories including: news, business, celebrities, entertainment, finance, health, media, politics, science, society, sports, and technology, the new app offers summaries of articles, video content and images.

"The Yahoo app brings together the best of the web so that you can easily search, check the weather, get the top headlines from Yahoo News Digest, and see popular Flickr photos. Just tap the Y icon in the upper right hand corner to access them all in one place." Yahoo said in a statement.

Available to download on Android and iPhone today, the news feed which features adjustable text size, becomes more personal the more the app is used. Articles can be shared via Mail, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr as well as the option to save for later.

Swiping left-to-right to move through stories allows users to see a snapshot of each article before reading and special events such as the Oscars, Olympics, and World Cup will feature at the top of the news feed.
