Yahoo! has been trying to play catch up with its mobile services and the latest product to get an upgrade would be the Yahoo! app for iPhone. The now iOS 7-ready app incorporates both Yahoo!’s and iOS 7’s new look and adds a number of new features as well, including breaking news, read later feature, and Tumblr integration.
My Saves is the read later, Instapaper-like feature of the app; breaking news alerts you of new content and stories that break; and Cinemagraphs that integrates videos and GIFs, a feature possibly taken from Tumblr. Navigation in this new Yahoo! app mimics gestures in Yahoo!’s Weather app where you can scroll down to see the list of stories and once you select a story, you can swipe horizontally to read on.
