Yahoo Aviate Launcher receives Smart Stream feature

Launchers are heaven-sent because they make browsing and sifting through all those Android apps easier. You know how hard it is to locate that one app you really need especially if you have tons of pages of all apps that you don't actually use. That's why launchers are needed because they show the apps you frequently use quickly especially when you need them right away. Yahoo Aviate Launcher is one app for Android that brings relevant information to the user. It was recently updated to include a special feature called Smart Stream.

Yahoo’s redesigned mobile search now looks like Google (of course)

It was an eccentric English writer named Charles Colton who coined the now famous quote, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." Google must now really be flattered as erstwhile rival Yahoo has overhauled its mobile search site, now bringing the most relevant results (apparently, previously, they've been giving us irrelevant ones?) and actionable results, just like what Google has been doing for the past years. This search overhaul is currently for mobile devices and for US users only.

Yahoo announces Search in App, TouchPal Keyboard integration

Yahoo Search is still alive. Of course, it is. Still the biggest rival of Google Search so don't think it will ever go away. Yes, Yahoo will continue to improve search to bring everyone the best mobile search experience ever. The company has been working on new features and since February of this year, it's been teaming up with mobile developers to improve on in-app experiences for Yahoo Search.

Bodyprint technology turns touchscreen into a biometric scanner

Majority of the companies around the globe still do not fully adopt biometrics. Only a small percentage take advantage of the technology but more researchers now are working on to enhance the system, hoping to improve on it or create a totally new related technology. Some Yahoo Labs researchers were able to develop 'Bodyprint', a new technology that can turn any smartphone touchscreen display into a biometric scanner for many purposes.

Yahoo to reportedly launch search and digital assistant this year

iOS users have their favorite friend Siri, while Android users mostly have their very own Google Now. Even Windows has its own Cortana, not up to par yet with the two, but slowly getting there. Yahoo is now saying, "Wait, wait, we'd like to join this party too!" CEO Marissa Mayer has indicated that they are indeed coming up with their own digital assistant that will be available as an app for mobile devices.

Yahoo Screen now with Chromecast support but limited only

If you're a fan of the cult favorite but dismally rated comedy show Community, then you were gratified to know that despite NBC's cancellation last year, Yahoo was kind enough to pick it up and renew it for a 6th season. And if you're watching it on your mobile device courtesy of the app Yahoo Screen, then now you will be able to appreciate it even more when you cast it on to a larger screen through Chromecast.

Yahoo App for Android revamped with a fresh new style

After updating the iOS version of the app, Yahoo quickly gave the Android variant the same new features and enhancements. This isn't just minor bug fixes as the Yahoo! app has gotten a fresh new look. The response has been overwhelming so the developers are bringing the same vibrant experience to our Android community. Expect your new Yahoo to display some interactive features like an image slider, community polls, and photo slideshows--more animations to make the app more fun and attractive to use.

Yahoo brings Search to Aviate

Yahoo is adding a not so new but very functional feature on Aviate. Search on Aviate now allows searching for things that are more specific. You can start searching for stuff on the Web, contacts, and your apps on your mobile device right on Aviate. No need to launch another window or a separate web browser because you can finish searching on Aviate. Search results will be displayed on your homescreen.

Yahoo Weather app on Android now with animated effects

There are a lot of weather apps available but nothing is as stunning as Yahoo Weather. I've tried a number of related apps but I would always go back to Yahoo because of the beautiful images. The app recently received an update with animated effects like fog, heat, lighting, frost, rain, and snow. All you need to do is look at the app and you'll immediately know the weather outside. No need to open the windows because you'll know what's going on outside just by looking at your screen.

Mozilla Firefox for Android updated to version 34 with Chromecast mirroring support

The Mozilla Firefox browser app for Android received a big-ish update recently, pushing it to version 34. But more than that, the update does brings a number of new features to the browser. We are mildly surprised though, that the move to make Yahoo the browser’s primary search engine has not been cascaded to the Android app yet, as that deal between Mozilla and Yahoo was done two weeks ago.
