The acquisition of Tumblr wasn't the only big news Yahoo! had to share with the tech world on Monday, unveiling an all-new Flickr experience at an event in New York City that definitely got everyone's attention.
Amidst rumors that CEO Marissa Meyer is trying to get a little more Yahoo! on iOS devices, the company has released an update to its existing Mail app for iPad support as well as a standalone Weather app.
So how about that PlayStation 4, huh? Sony held a big event Wednesday night to announce its next-generation entertainment console, but neglected to show it to anyone, let alone offer up a price or release date. Maybe they're taking an anti-Apple approach? Guess we'll see how that works out for them, but from where we sit, seems as if the once-mighty CE giant seems to just be trying to get in line ahead of Xbox rival Microsoft…
Yahoo! is on a tear this week, following up its new Yahoo! Mail app for iOS with a complete redesign of the company's official Flickr app -- which is curiously still not a universal build for the iPad.
Yahoo! TimeTraveler sadly won't transport you to another era, but despite the misleading name, the company's newest travel app has the potential to be a pretty useful tool -- assuming you have a set amount of time to fill, are traveling to one of 29 applicable cities, and have little-to-no knowledge of said destination.
Yahoo! isn't exactly the first name in search engines these days, but with Axis, the Web giant has returned to its roots in a big way. If Steve Jobs put the Internet in our hands with the iPad, the App Store's first "search browser" puts websites at our fingertips with a sleek, intuitive interface that turns browsing on its head.
In an effort to maximize its relevancy in the mobile sphere, Yahoo! introduced a few new iOS apps this week to the App Store. One that particularly caught my eye was TimeTraveler, which allows you to explore the city you're in by creating easy-to-follow trip plans. The app creates the day's itinerary for you based on where you're starting from, where you want to end up, and how much time you have in between. You could also set your start location and destination at the same address to explore the sights around that area.
