Great apps and a huge selection of great apps are a big part of what makes the iPad such an amazing device. There are excellent apps for just about any purpose you can think of – from serious productivity to pure entertainment. Better still, there are lots of great free apps for the iPad. Our Best Free iPad App of the Weekposts highlight these apps.
This week’s pick is Yahoo Screen – a simple and fun videos app for the iPad.
The app has a minimal UI that lets you ‘use your finger as a remote’ – you just swipe up and down to move between channels and swipe left and right to browse the videos in each channel.
Yahoo Screen has a good number of channels covering popular categories from news to comedy, sports, and more.
Channels and topics include ABC News, Comedy Central, SNL, Popsugar celebrity news, movie trailers, game reviews, a food channel, a Wired channel, GQ channel, Yahoo Sports Reports, and Fantasy Football. There is a good mix of current and classic content on some of the entertainment channels.
Here’s an App Store link for Yahoo Screen.
