Yahoo! Inc. has announced four Yahoo apps on Apple Watch that will be available on April 24 – Yahoo Weather, Yahoo Sports Fantasy, Yahoo News Digest, and Yahoo News Hong Kong. These innovative apps were reimagined and simplified for the watch, allowing Yahoo to deliver a highly engaging and personal experience in a new way.
“We’re always looking at how users will engage new form factors, and we’ve taken the wrist computer as an opportunity to rethink our product experiences. Design generally loves constraint, so we rebuilt for the simplicity and user expectations of this screen,” said Adam Cahan, Yahoo’s senior vice president of mobile and video.
“For the Apple Watch, in particular, we’ve added top of the hour updates from Yahoo News Digest and included micro-summaries with a new speed reading feature, for Yahoo Weather we’ve added “feels like” for an immediate at-a-glance visual update, and with Yahoo Sports Fantasy we’ve included Smack Talk with dictation. We hope you love using them.”
