Digg For iPad Lets You Pick Up Reading Where You Left Off

The nimble Betaworks team behind the new Digg has just released a new version of its iOS app that supports the iPad. It also adds a handy feature called “reading sync,” which syncs your scrolling position in an article between the iPhone and iPad, so you can pick up where you left off. You can now share article links via text message, and the navigation in the app has been simplified.

The Digg app is still very simple, but the experience is remarkably consistent with the desktop Web version, which has been scaled back a bit to match its iOS siblings. It’s a very basic grid of stories with an image and tag line, and there’s one number indicating social network buzz.

But this team, which first built social news app News.me, has become known for packing small but awesome features underneath simple exteriors. The save-for-later functionality in Digg for iOS is now bolstered by reading sync, making reading on Digg a convenient cross-device experience. It also features News.me’s pioneering Paperboy feature, which refreshes your article list whenever you leave or arrive at a location of your choice.
