Yahoo! might be struggling in the search engine market, but it quietly has a lot of pretty solid original media content. The new Livestand app for the iPad brings that content to life, with rich images and videos, along with articles, to create a kind of magazine for your iPad. You can customize the app to only feature the news topics that interest you the most. Personalization also extends to the basics, like the stock ticker, weather, horoscopes, and TV schedules.
If your iPad is a family media consumption device, you’ll be happy to know that you can create four different profiles on Livestand, so everyone in the family can create their own magazine that’s perfect for them. It’s completely free, too, so if you’re a fan of Yahoo!’s brand of media, check it out.
