News aggregator Digg (http://digg.com/) has launched an update to its iOS app, bringing new features such as a "Popular" section that sorts feeds by popularity, as well as a setting to see only unread items in feed views. The update also adds integration with article formatting service Readability, (http://www.readability.com/) as well as the ability to delete feeds and folders directly from the app.

From Digg's official blog (http://blog.digg.com/post/58259501331/launched-new-digg-ios-app-digg-reader-for-mobile-web):Our new iOS app is going live in the Apple App Store today. Here's what's new:
- We've added the "Popular" section to Digg Reader, enabling you to sort any of your feeds in order of their popularity across the social web.
- You can now choose to see only unread items in any Digg Reader feed. All feeds have a simple pull-down menu where you can toggle between All and Unread-only views.
- You can also turn on a new setting to show only folders and feeds with unread items.
- You can now delete feeds and folders directly in the app.
- We've improved scrolling performance, and added support for Readability. The website launched (http://blog.digg.com/post/54149272160/digg-reader-is-live) its RSS reader service in June, and its iOS app currently holds a four-star rating across all versions. Digg (http://appshopper.com/news/digg) is a free download in the App Store. [Direct Link (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id362872995?mt=8)]

You can make the app as nice as you want, but if nobody is using the service..... it doesn't do any good. Digg really shot itself in the foot with.. what was it, 4.0? Back like 3 years ago.

Digg completely died, was sold off and resurrected by someone else. Now they are trying to thunder back. Looks like they are making a good effort.

go compare the front pages of digg and reddit, totally different. digg just gives you a just a few links to what's important on the net right now, not up for voting or anything. I often find things there that is awesome but buried by stupid stuff on reddit.

I use it. check it out, it has redeemed itself in a lot of ways. It offers a list of links that isn't full of crap like what reddit has become.

Digg used to be very much like reddit in that it was user submitted links that you can vote and comment on, except being more restrictive in what you could post (via an default, unchangeable set of boards). They were always very comparable in the basic idea of their sites but the update a few years back not only removed the ability to comment on posts, but was massively buggy and crashed often. Digg is completely different now and is probably more comparable to Pinterest*. That being said...

This is the best Digg iOS App update ever!
