Yahoo! today announced Livestand from Yahoo!, a digital newsstand that continually offers new content to consumers, based on their interests. Launching first for tablets, Livestand from Yahoo! will enable publishers and advertisers to seamlessly distribute content across tablets and mobile phones in an experience that is elegant and is personalised to the individual.
Designed to initially power Yahoo!’s vast digital content library – which includes Sports, News, Finance, Flickr, omg!, and the Yahoo! Contributor Network – Livestand from Yahoo! leverages Yahoo!’s strengths in content and personalisation and re-imagines them into a new kind of experience for the rapidly growing tablet and mobile phone categories.
Livestand from Yahoo! is slated to be available to consumers as iPad and Android tablet applications in the first half of 2011, and as a scalable platform for publishers and advertisers. Mobile phone and browser experiences will follow, as Yahoo! delivers purpose-built experiences across a variety of mobile Web entry points.
