The Yahoo app turns into Newsroom, to read and discuss the news that interest you most (photos and videos)
Despite recent security concerns, Yahoo is not discouraged and continues to work on its mobile applications to stay afloat. The novelty of the day is called Yahoo Newsroom, rebranding of its search app, which today becomes a platform for discovering, sharing and reading news and stories.
Via the tabs at the bottom of the screen, users can explore the contents organized in “Vibe”, sort of thematic channels which aggregate news from various sources, such as Yahoo itself, buzzfeed, Wall Street Journal, NPR, Bloomberg, Huffington Post and others.

The most interesting part, however, is the social one: the user can also post stories in the Vibes or comments below the articles, and that should generate interesting discussions among all those interested in the subject (or at least that’s what the Yahoo developers hope).
The app’s algorithm makes sure that your news feed adapts more and more to your interests, based on the Vibes in which you are most active reading news, commenting on it or posting articles written by yourself.
The iOS app can be installed on any iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 9 or later and it is already available for free from the App Store, while the Android one still shows the old name (in Italy) and will be updated in the coming days. If you want to download them, you can use the badges below, which will take you to the Play Store and the App Store respectively.
