Digg Deeper comes to Reader and iOS, adds email option


Digg may not be the "in" thing that it was when Kevin Rose started it, but the site is still around and trying to stay relevant. Last year, in the wake of Google's shutdown of its Reader app, the social sharing site launched an alternative. More recently it launched Digg Deeper, a service that automatically IDs trending stories and videos based on those you follow via Twitter.

Now Digg Deeper is coming to more platforms, one of which is the aforementioned Reader application. "You can now use Digg Deeper to scan the most-shared stories, videos and links from your Twitter connections", the service announces.

The new service is also launching on iOS through a new Digg app update. This will allow you see what friend shared each of the stories and also allow you to view the specific Tweet about each of them. It will also allow for push notifications, alerting you to trending stories.

There are additional updates to the service, including a Daily Digest email which is an optional choice for customers. This is an opt-in, so you'll need to head into settings and enable it.

"It’s a great way to turn your often-overwhelming social streams into low-volume, high-value feed from the people and channels you trust", the company states. It even asks for feedback from customers to help improve things, providing an address -- "As always, we welcome your feedback, suggestions, and feature requests. Email our CTO, michael@digg.com".
