On Monday, Yahoo! updated its iOS app, promising users the best of the web in a virtually endless stream of personalized stories.

The more you use the app, the more relevant stories you’ll start to see. The app’s redesign is complete with beautiful and modern touches – it’s fast and easy to use.

The new app capitalizes on Summly’s impressive news summarization technology. Just last month, Yahoo acquired the company for an estimated $30 million.

On Monday morning, Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer shared her thoughts on the new app.

“The new Yahoo! mobile app is also smarter, using Summly’s natural-language algorithms and machine learning to deliver quick story summaries,” Mayer writes on the Yahoo! Corporate blog.

“We acquired Summly less than a month ago, and we’re thrilled to introduce this game-changing technology in our first mobile application,” Mayer adds. “And, with the immersive imagery of our virtually endless newsfeed, the new Yahoo! app has both great technology and beautiful design front and center. Because searching for great content is also core to the Yahoo! experience, we’ve also improved the search experience with better video and image search.”

The Yahoo! app for iPhone and iPod Touch is available for download now.
