Yahoo! debuts new app for Android
Yahoo! introduced a new Android app on Tuesday which looks to be a much cleaner experience than in previous years. Available for free in Google Play, the app provides access to breaking news, personalized stories, and rich images. While there’s no explicit mention of the Summly details we cannot help but see how it seems to convert long articles in short and sweet bursts.
- Summarized Stories With Rich Images: It’s easy to read shorter news summaries for those on-the-go moments. By default, you’ll see a visual stream of stories. Your news stream will display short summaries and immersive imagery associated with each story.
- Get Personal: Similar to the update to our new Yahoo! experience, it’s easier to personalize your stories on the new Yahoo! app. Scroll to the bottom of each story and checkmark the topics you want more of or “x” them out to get less. .
- Visual Search: We’ve also enhanced our Web, Image and Video search tabs to enhance Yahoo! Search on your phone. On the sidebar, tap “Web Search” then enter in your query. At the bottom of your results, you’ll see tabs for Web, Images or Video.
- Share News With Friends: On the top right of each article you will find and a button to share via Mail, Facebook, Twitter, and any other Android app you have installed which supports sharing.
