“Consuming news and information on the go has become the norm -- whether waiting for a morning coffee or commuting home from work, content discovery is an insatiable daily habit,” said Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer. “Our mobile phones have opened up a window to the world, with the latest news, sports updates, and entertainment coverage right there in our pockets. Because consuming content is such a core part of our everyday lives, today we’re launching our new Yahoo! mobile app for iPhone.”

Yahoo! App – What’s New
  • A virtually endless stream of stories.
  • Summaries for stories thanks to the newly integrated Summly technology.
  • Stories based on your interests are delivered to your mobile device. As you use the app, it learns what stories are relevant to you. The visual stream of stories become more relevant the more you use the app.

  • You can select the types of stories you’re interested in.
  • The web search experience has been revamped.
The Yahoo! app is available for free on Apple’s App Store.
