HuffPost Debuts Yahoo! App

The Huffington Post revealed an app for Yahoo! that allows Yahoo! users to browse HuffPost sections without leaving the homepage, use their Yahoo! IDs to sign in to HuffPost and join HuffPost Social News, and share comments with Yahoo! contacts.

Yahoo! News will also feature more HuffPost stories following an expansion of the editorial relationship between the two parties.

HuffPost co-founder and editor in chief Arianna Huffington said in a post:

And that’s why I’m excited about the new app we’ve developed for Yahoo!. Over 260 million people use Yahoo! email accounts and 550 million people visit Yahoo! every month — and now they can keep up with HuffPost without having to leave their Yahoo! homepage, simply by adding our new app.

It’s a cool tool that lets you quickly flip through all our different sections, as well as check out the most popular stories on the site and preview the latest posts from our top bloggers. It gives users a taste of our fast-paced, constantly refreshed approach to delivering news and opinion. Click here to install the new Yahoo! app.

We’ve also made it so you can now use your Yahoo! ID to quickly sign in to HuffPost, and to join HuffPost Social News so you can easily link up with your friends from Yahoo! who are also part of the HuffPost community. Want to check out what they are reading or make sure you see their latest comment? Log onto HuffPost Social News using Yahoo! and that happens automatically.

And when you write a comment, you can, with one click, share it with your Yahoo! friends and contacts — just like you can share to Facebook or via Twitter.
