Yahoo has recently unveiled a nice update to its popular iOS app and streamlined its homepage in the United States.
News junkies should be glad to hear that the update makes it much easier to read and search for content more quickly.
Here’s more from Yahoo:
With this update, we’ve made it possible to sift through more content in less time. You no longer need to open individual articles in multiple browser tabs; instead, you can simply scroll through related stories inline. Up top, our editors pick some of the most important stories you need to know, alongside content most relevant to you. For a more in-depth understanding of a story, see related stories by clicking the “heart” icon, or clicking through to find additional related stories below each article. Over time, as you click on more content, the Yahoo stream becomes more tailored to your interests. The more you use the app and homepage, the better your experience will be.
A more social experience
With the new update, it’s also easier to view comments about a particular section or story. All comments can be read directly in-line with whatever you’re taking a look at.
Also, readers can discover a full story as it is happening live and also receive instant notifications when a new development occurs.
The Yahoo app is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.
