Some time ago, Yahoo was the in thing. It was all over the place, almost like Google nowadays. You were really cool if somebody asked for your email and you gave them @yahoo address instead of the classic Hotmail. And what about Yahoo Answers? Anything that you could think of, regardless of how stupid, absurd or surrealistic had already been asked and answered years earlier by an Australian kid on the other side of the world. And although asking any question could turn you into bait for Internet trolls, now and again you could even come across a useful answer. However, Yahoo has gone unnoticed over the last few years. But it's not dead yet and its news channel continues kicking ass on your Android with a new and modern style that has just been renovated thanks to this app called Yahoo Newsroom.
Your customized source for daily news.
If Yahoo is good at something that's definitely filtering the information that may be interesting to the user. To be able to carry out a complete and efficient service, you'll have to log in to be able to filter the contents. Thus, from the very beginning, we'll be shown the most important headline but also those preferred by the user. You'll choose what you want to read. Some of the topics you'll be able to find are:
- The Weather.
But you can also subscribe to specific topics such as Justin Bieber so that you're sent all the news articles that mention him. Before reading the contents, you can access a summary so you can decide whether it's worth reading the whole thing or not. Furthermore, the application has an adjustable text size (large, medium, and small) so that you can adapt it more to yourself and your likings.
Receive the news you want and a long list of interesting stories summarized by Yahoo.
You can download and install the APK file without any trouble, although Yahoo's news app is restricted by countries. Find out if you're lucky enough to use it or not.
