Yahoo app finally runs natively on iPad

Yahoo’s main iOS client is great. Not only does it double as a portal to Yahoo’s key mobile apps and services, it’s basically a handy one-stop shop for copious amounts of curated and original news content summarized by Yahoo.

With articles available across twelve distinct categories – News, Business, Celebrities, Entertainment, Finance, Health, Media, Politics, Science, Society, Sports and Technology – it’s easy to get accustomed to firing up the app on mornings and skim through headlines before getting out of bed.

I generally tend to avoid reading news on the iPhone’s tiny screen whenever possible so you could imagine I’m really glad that Yahoo’s software has finally leaped onto the iPad

Aside from iPad support, the refreshed application features integration with Digital Magazines and has been enhanced with snapshots of local weather, news digest, stocks, sports, popular photos and videos.

I’m liking the snapshots: no longer do I have to switch to the Yahoo Weather app just to see if I’m going to be needing a raincoat today!

Download Yahoo 5.0 in the App Store.

Again, the app will now run natively on any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad devices compatible with iOS 7.0 or later.
