Digg on iPhone, title says it all

Get Digg on your iPhone


Yesterday the Digg team unveiled an iPhone-friendly version of their site. The lighter-weight version shows 10 stories at a time and lets users sort back and forth between pages using large navigation arrows at the bottom of the screen. Each story shows how many Diggs it currently has, along with a permalinked page that contains a brief description, link to the full story, and the top five comments. Best of all, users can log in and Digg stories.

It's also worth noting this isn't the same version of Digg for the iPhone we wrote about last month. That version was built by David Cann, whereas this one is first-party from the folks at Digg.

On a side note, as a motivational tool, Digg's Kevin Rose offered up a free iPhone to the site's coder if he could pull the app together in 48 hours or less (which he did).

Coming soon is a way to browse the top stories by day or week view.
