Whilst many have tried, almost all have failed at creating that killer iPhone app for Digg.com. The biggest stumbling block for other developers is that Digg has prevented Digging from within the app. Some opted to workaround this by using a Web View, but it just hasn’t been a great experience.
The Official Digg iPhone application offers a slick interface into stories on Digg.com. Whilst the app does a good job at delivering stories and social sharing, it fails to give any control over management of friends or your Digg Profile. This is a 1.0 product, so user feedback is sure to drive development of the app.
Not sure why it took so long to arrive, but I’m glad it’s here. Expect interactions on Digg to increase as a result of launching the application. You can easily Digg stories and comments up or down, as well as add stories to your list of favourites.
