SCREENSHOTS: The New Digg Is Here!

digg new site

Today marks a new start for Digg. 

Just six short weeks ago, Digg was bought by Betaworks and it immediately launched aggressive plans to relaunch the site in six weeks. And we will admit, we are impressed with the new site and app.

The social bookmarking site has a new lease on life, and it is apparent that the foundations for both new products reflect simplicity and ease of use.

In addition to a new website, Digg has a brand new iPhone app.

We were thoroughly impressed and can’t wait to start using the site again.

Let's start with the iPhone app. Digg's new icon reflects its new colour scheme. Tap to open.

The site's featured article is displayed when you first open the app.

Before you can do anything, you need to sign in with Facebook.

The newly designed site is heavily reliant on Facebook

It's easy to grant access if you already have the Facebook app on your phone.

Here are a few more options. We like how you can receive the latest articles when you leave a location.

Here are some categories. The reading list is a handy feature for saving articles later.

Here are some other articles from the feed.
