Yahoo Launches Its New Android AppBy: Chris Crum - April 30, 2013
The app features summarized stories with rich images, personalized stories, visual search, and a share button for sharing stories to social media.
“The new Yahoo! app for Android delivers the best of the web with a virtually endless stream of personalized stories,” says Yahoo Senior Director, Mobile and Emerging Products, Fernando Delgado. “It’s designed for those moments when you need short news summaries to help find what you’re looking for, or when you have more time to enjoy them.”
Users will see the visual stream of stories by default, but can switch to classic view by clicking the top left icon with three bars, selecting “All Stories,” and tapping “Visual”.
“Your news stream will display short summaries and immersive imagery associated with each story,” says Delgado. “Once you’ve picked a story to read, you can continue to the bottom of the article to pull up the next one.
You can scroll to the bottom of each story, and checkmark the topics you ant more of (or “x” out of them).
The app is available in the Google Play store.
