Yahoo released a brand new video app for iOS today that aims to bring a TV-like experience to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. The new app – called Yahoo! Screens – allows users to browse through TV clips and episodes by swiping left-to-right as well as up-and-down.
Users can customize the experience to their liking and use Screen to discover new content and shows. To kick things off, Yahoo partnered with Viacom to pump out clips from The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Saturday Night Live, as well as other series and movies. The free app is available in the App Store now.
Here are the full release notes:
“Download, kick back, and instantly watch the best videos from Yahoo Screen.
• The only place to watch the best of Saturday Night Live (SNL) online, plus new Yahoo Originals featuring Jack Black, Ed Helms, Zachary Levi, Cheryl Hines, Rachael Harris and more!
• Instantly stream the best in news, sports, food, and entertainment from MLB, UFC, The Onion, Martha Stewart, and many more for free.
• Use your finger as a remote — easily swipe side-to-side to browse through videos or up-and-down to change the channel. Yahoo Screen is intuitively built for the mobile user.”
