Flickr Update 3.1 Adds Album Sharing, Tag Editing, And Other Features From The Web Service

Yahoo property Flickr doesn't have the most advanced Android app around, but it's slowly adding features from the popular website into its mobile interface. The recent upgrade from 3.0.3 to 3.1 brings a handful of changes, most notably the ability to share full albums directly from the app. You can now send initiations over Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr (of course), or old-fashioned email and text messages.

If you're an administrator on one of Flickr's photo groups, you can now invite other people to add their photos to the pool from within the app.

Yahoo Mail App Updated With News, Weather, Sports Scores, And That Other Junk From Your Yahoo Homepage

You get in, you check your email, and you get out. That's the plan anyway, and Yahoo doesn't like it. That time spent using other apps is valuable time that could be spent using its own. To tackle this issue head-on, the company has updated its Yahoo Mail app with the goodies (read: distractions) from the Yahoo homepage that people know and love. Now instead of just the mail, users will have access to the latest current events, weather reports, sports scores, popular videos, and other non-mail related attractions. The UI has changed around enough that Yahoo is referring to this as a whole new app.

Yahoo Buys Its Own Snapchat By Acquiring Blink, Starts With Shuttering Its Apps

Now you see it, now you don't. Just like that, Blink is disappearing in the blink of an eye. Okay, not quite. Current users will gradually see the service shut down on both Android and iOS over the next few weeks, following the app's acquisition by Yahoo.

Blink5

Blink was a product of Meh Labs (no, not Meth Labs), a company built by two ex-Google employees Kevin Stephens and Michelle Norgan. The app functioned similarly to Snapchat, at least in premise, by allowing users to send messages that automatically disappear.

[New App] Yahoo News Digest Presents The Day's Goings-On With Focus And Style

Yahoo has released another Android app and - hey, come back here, this is actually cool - it's an attractive take on providing the news. Yahoo News Digest gathers bits of news from around the Internet (various reports, video, Wikipedia entries, Google maps, etc.) and puts them together to form a single story. The formula isn't quite the same as Circa's, but it should seem familiar to anyone accustomed to that bite-sized news app. Presentation is half the appeal here, and you may be pleased to know that Yahoo has done a good job creating an app that doesn't offensively ignore all of Android's taste in design.

[New App] Yahoo Screen Brings Android Another Source Of Clips From Saturday Night Live, The Daily Show, And Anything Amusing

Full-length content is all around us. Netflix will give it out, though subscribers have to commit to a monthly fee. Hulu's willing to give at least some of its offering away for free, and Crackle's even easier. But what if all you're after are good new-fashioned clips, something that doesn't need much time or attention to digest, and something short enough to toss up onto a social network. Yahoo hears you, so they've brought Yahoo Screen to Android.

Yahoo Mail 3.1 Update Does The Opposite Of What Gmail Recently Did - Now Blocks Image Loading By Default

Late last year, Gmail started showing images by default in a way that Google says doesn't compromise general security. Now Yahoo has released an update for its Android mail app that does precisely the opposite. Now those pesky images are blocked by default (or is the story here... that they weren't already?).

The option to toggle this is tucked away in the app settings, so there's nothing stopping users from going back to living wild and free.

Aviate's First Update Since Being Bought By Yahoo Introduces A New 'Listening Space' For Managing Music

For Aviate users, 2014 has made for an uncertain year thus far. Yahoo announced its acquisition of the home screen replacement at this year's CES, and we haven't heard a peep since. Well, today the launcher has just received its first major update of the year, and this one includes a new space that activates whenever you plug in a pair of earphones.

Yahoo Kills Yet Another Product - IntoNow, Video Identification App, Has Already Disappeared From Google Play

Do you use your smartphone while watching TV? Yeah, put your hands down. We're all guilty here. Yahoo hoped to take advantage of this habit of ours with IntoNow, an app that could identify whatever show was on and provide extra information about it (think SoundHound for TV). Yeah, the end result was still distracting, but it could be less disruptive than performing a Google search. Regardless, it doesn't matter anymore.

[CES 2014] Yahoo Has Acquired Android Home Screen Replacement Aviate, Will Let 25,000 More Users Into The Beta To Celebrate

The Play Store is brimming with alternative home screens, but Aviate was far and away one of the most impressive we saw last year. This beautifully designed launcher takes a completely different approach to organizing your apps and data. Apparently Yahoo was just as impressed as we were because the company just announced at CES that it has acquired Aviate.
