Review: Yahoo! is the latest app success from the online content giant

Review headlines, access your Yahoo! account, and more, in this finely-crafted app.

Yahoo! is the official app for Yahoo!'s content network, connecting you with top stories, financial news, and more from the online resource, all with amazing results. The app is designed to be browsed casually and quickly; and with multiple options for how to do so, it's easy for anyone to enjoy their experience here.

After installation, Yahoo! prompts you to choose how you will browse the news--either visually or with a list of top stories. Both look incredible onscreen and have sleek, smooth interfaces, but the visual tiled interface is especially well done. After you choose (a decision you can change later in the settings menu), you will see all of Yahoo!'s top stories for the day in a feed. Slide out the left menu and you can log in to comment on and share items with other users or view your other shared stories from the desktop. Web search is built into the interface, as well, along with story curation to remove certain sections, and a list of other apps that Yahoo! has recently developed.

Everything in the Yahoo! app runs smoothly and without hiccups. It is a well made app that is a real pleasure to use, much like Yahoo!'s other recent apps. And because it integrates fully with your Yahoo! account you can easily sync your experience across all devices. While Yahoo!'s features may change often, their recent string of app successes continues.
