Electric City The Revolt Takes Players Inside the Uprising

Posted by Jordan Minor on July 18th, 2012

“Electric City” is a new animated web miniseries from movie star Tom Hanks and Yahoo! Screen. In addition to the cartoon collaboration, the project seeks to expand into other digital media like comics and, of course, video games. Jump Games is bringing “Electric City” to iOS devices with their new role-playing game Electric City The Revolt.

“Electric City” is named after and set in a post-apocalyptic future society where all of the world’s power and information is controlled by a group called Wire Central. As Frank Deetleman, players will join the rebellion and fight for freedom by exploring the city’s various precincts, completing missions, and solving puzzles all while avoiding the AMPs or Allied Municipal Patrol. Players can also compete in various mini-games and compare scores with friends.

The game and its characters will also tie in with the main, 90-minute episodic series currently airing here on Yahoo! Screen. Electric City The Revolt is available now for $0.99 on the App Store.

Yahoo! might have lost its position as the most commonly used search engine, but it's bounced back in order to dominate the App Store, or at least that's the hope.

One such new app from the company is that of Yahoo! TimeTraveler. The app makes exploring 29 major cities much easier by creating simple to follow trip plans for each of them, all based according to how long the user has got and where they want to start and end the tour.

The cities catered for range from 19 major US cities including New York, San Francisco, Chicago, New Orleans and Dallas, as well as European destinations like Paris, Rome, London and Barcelona. Dubai and Christchurch are also catered for.

The app should keep most travellers happy and offers the potential for up to 10 hours of touring. An integrated map with routes and directions makes it easy to use, and it's possible to generate multiple different plans for a city.

If you're travelling this Summer, give it a shot. Yahoo! TimeTraveler is out now and it's free.

Livestand from Yahoo! Enters the Personalized Magazine Market With Live News

Posted by Lisa Caplan on November 14th, 2011
iPad App - Designed for iPad

Livestand, from Yahoo! is yet another former internet giant’s attempt to create a presence on iOS by creatin a personalized news and entertainment magazine.

Like most apps of this sort, they offer curated internet content to build a magazine that updates live to keep readers informed on topics of interest.

The app feature video and photo galleries, along with headlines, stock information and entertainment, horoscopes and general interest stories.

In its customized “Personal Mix,” users can pick topics and sites of interest and create their own live news experience. The app can be further customized by adding location and preferred stocks in the “Favorite Things” section of the control menu.

Social network integration includes Twitter and Facebook and the option to have multiple users and multiple magazines is great.

The GUI is clean and intuitive, and the content is easy to read, even if the sane background for each article gets a bit repetitive. That said, it creates a unified cohesive look that competitors have failed to capture.

But, the app lacks some features like a like or dislike option to further personalize content, and the current content providers are very limited. Also, the app seems to work only in landscape mode. But, if the library expands, Livestand has potential.

iPad App - Designed for iPad

If there is one thing that the rapid expansion of social networking has left in disarray, it has to be instant messaging services.  Using myself as a horrible example of this phenomenon, I have accounts through MSN, AIM, Yahoo, Facebook, Google Talk, and even Skype.  To make matters even more confusing, I have have some instances of several different sign-on names per service, as I attempt to segregate work and personal contacts.  Simply put, managing my social life has become nothing short of a nightmare.

Now try to wrap your brain around trying to operate a different application for each service that holds your digital identity.  Needless to say, something has to give.  That is why the new iPad release of IMO Instant Messenger was just what the doctor ordered.  Offering the ability to unite all of your messaging accounts and their management under a single application, suddenly makes keeping your life straight a bit more feasible.  Take at look at some of the awesome features that they are bragging about:

  • Use of existing IM account logins, so no need to create a new account

  • Your IM accounts can be Linked so you can login to all accounts at once

  • Searchable chat history: search your past conversations on both our website and the app

  • Flag your buddies as favorites so you can easily find them at the top of your buddy list

  • Push notifications sent for 72 hours after you close the app

  • Buddy icons that can optionally be displayed on the buddy list

  • Links sent by your buddies open in our app instead of Safari

  • The option to save passwords for quick sign-in without linking accounts

Just to prove that they are not just tooting their own horns, the team over at IMO.im has whipped up a trailer to help fill you in on using the application effectively.  Check it out below:

So they have manage to finally create the app that can help keep my life straight, while not breaking the bank in the process.  That's right folks, the software will cost you absolutely nothing!  If you have an iPad and an instant messenger account of any variety, this should be an instant download.  Don't worry, we will be in the queue right behind you!


Yahoo Infuses Yahoo Mail With HTML5 Goodness

Posted by Chris Nitz on August 18th, 2010

Yahoo had a big day on Tuesday. Yahoo pulled the curtain back on a fresh new HTM5-optimized version of Yahoo Mail. The kicker is this newest optimization is for the iPad.

Those of you already using Yahoo Web Mail on an iPhone will feel like you're visiting your best friend. The iPad version takes the improvements made for the iPhone, spruces them up, and optimizes them for the sexy screen on the iPad

The goodies don’t just stop at pretty layouts and HTML5 optimizations though. Through the miracles of modern caching technology, Yahoo Mail on the iPad will also cache user emails. This is great for those times when WiFi is completely unattainable.

This means that if you happen to be climbing to the top of Mount Everest and you realize you forgot if you were supposed to zig or zag at the fork in the path, you have options. You can open your Yahoo Mail on that iPad and do a quick search for what Jimmy told you to do. Thanks to that email cache, you can look at the map he scribbled on a napkin and emailed you earlier in the week.

This just shows us that more companies are willing to comply with the Apple enforced HTML5 standard than consumers give credit. Of course, the umpteen trillion iPods, iPhones, and iPads that are currently in use are probably more to blame than anything else is. It is still nice to see companies providing updates to their web services to cater to everyone. Are you reading this Google?

The new Yahoo Mail is available to anyone in the world with an iPad and access to the Internet. Just open that Safari app and point it to http://mail.yahoo.com. Yahoo will take of the rest from there. It might also help if you have a Yahoo Mail account.
