Re-imagining Video For Mobile with Yahoo Screen

By Robby Stein, Director of Product Management

Heading home, turning the TV on and channel-surfing is something that a lot of us do every day. This daily experience is what we wanted to recreate with our new Yahoo Screen app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Since joining Yahoo, the mobile team in NYC has worked tirelessly to bring together design, technology and content to create an app experience that helps you find entertaining videos.

Together we’ve built Screen as a simple, intuitive experience that turns your finger into a remote control. Just swipe through channels of content from Yahoo and our great partners then lean back and watch…no matter where you are.imageThere’s a few ways to get started; browse through trending clips, search for shows, or jump right in and start watching. Swiping left and right skips between episodes and swiping up and down flips through channels.

To get you going, we’re proud to announce a brand new deal with Viacom to bring you clips from some of Comedy Central’s best shows, including The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report. Together with the exclusive digital clip archive of Saturday Night Live, Yahoo Screen now offers you access to some of the most storied franchises in comedy history, on any device.

In addition, the Fall 2013 Comedy Lineup is now live. Whether you want to get lost in the best clips of Saturday Night Live or get hooked on new shows featuring stars like Jack Black in Ghost Ghirls, John Stamos in Losing It With John Stamos, you’ll have over 1,000 hours of comedy to watch.  

We want Yahoo Screen to be a place where you can customize your experience to your liking while continually discovering new things to watch and share. We hope to make Yahoo Screen the destination for the world’s best video creators and their awesome content.

So go ahead…download Yahoo Screen. No TV required.

This Is Your Year — Go Big With Mobile Drafting In The New Yahoo! Fantasy Sports App

By Ron Belmarch, Product Director, Mobile Fantasy Sports

At Yahoo! Fantasy Sports we pride ourselves on being the #1 home for fantasy, giving you awesome apps, world-class up-to-the-minute news and updates and everything else you need to win big…and of course talk a little smack with your friends along the way.

Today, the Yahoo! Fantasy Sports mobile team is proud to share some news. We’re launching the 2013 Fantasy Sports app for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android smartphones, with a new design and lots of great new features. Front and center is what you’ve all been asking for — mobile drafting!

To make the best end-to-end mobile fantasy sports experience out there, we drafted our own team across Yahoo! including the recently acquired Bignoggins Productions, and Loki Studios.

As a Yahoo! Fantasy Sports Football manager, you can now sign up, draft a team and win your league championship wherever you are.

Yahoo! Fantasy is now faster and easier to use with the complete end-to-end fantasy experience available on every screen. We’ve even added free notifications so you’ll always be up to the minute while you’re out and about.

Draft day is the most important date for any fantasy football player, so we’ve built in mock drafting to help you prepare and get an edge on the competition. Not into football? Basketball, hockey and baseball are on the way, too! All of our Fantasy games will now live under one mobile roof — that’s why we renamed it the Yahoo! Fantasy Sports app.

Keep an eye out for more Fantasy Football news and updates as we inch closer to the season, so sign up and start your mock draft.
