Yahoo regularly updates the Yahoo Mail app. The company silently announced the update in a Tumblr post. The app now comes with event and travel notifications so you won’t have to miss your next event or flight scheduled on your calendar.
This news is definitely a long time coming. Yahoo Aviate has announced the addition of a single, "small" feature that increases the launcher's usefulness quite dramatically. Now users will be able to create their own custom collections and will no longer be bound by the categories that Aviate has defined for them.
Aviate is an Android launcher that was purchased by Yahoo early this year and came out of beta in June. Aviate is designed to organize apps and aggregate data for users. With Aviate running on so many devices, Yahoo is able to gather some data about what apps the user interacts with the most, average apps installed, and other details.
If you’re in the finance industry or are interested or involved in the stock market, chances are you’d always want the latest updates even before you reach the office or a desktop. While there are many finance apps out there, it never hurts to try one that comes from known names in the industry. Yahoo! Finance has a shiny brand new app, completely redesigned for Android devices and will definitely come in handy for stocks whizzes out there.
With the World Cup officially over and Europe’s domestic league seasons still a month away, football fans (and the newly-converted fans too) are experiencing a bit of football withdrawal. Good thing you still have mobile games and apps to tide you over until then and help you get over this “separation anxiety” from anything football-related. Yahoo Sports is offering up Fantasy Soccer, to give you the chance to manage the best football team in the world.
Yahoo has finally taken out its launcher from invite-only beta. But aside from also giving it a new name, now called Yahoo Aviate, the former search giant has revamped the launcher's design, which could leave some revisiting users a bit confused.
Another Yahoo branded app has arrived in the Google Play Store this morning. This latest is called Yahoo News Digest and it is one that aims to keep you informed on all the need-to-know news. The News Digest app offers a twice daily summary of the top stories.
Android users now have another option to consider when it comes to streaming video. The latest addition to the Play Store comes courtesy of Yahoo and the app is called Yahoo Screen. This one is free to download and free to use. You'll be able to stream a variety of content including some from Saturday Night Live.
Yahoo has just initiated a gradual change in its online services, requiring an actual Yahoo account instead of Facebook or Google credentials. This move might indicate a bigger strategy on Yahoo's part to reclaim its lost territory on the Internet.
In a rather abrupt move, Yahoo COO Henrique de Castro has left the company. Effective Thursday, de Castro will no longer hold any position at Yahoo, and has vacated his position as COO altogehter. This brings a strange wrinkle to an already odd story, and could mean a schism was growing within Yahoo’s ranks.
