Overall, though, Yahoo is a fine-looking app--albeit one that doesn't feel necessarily like a really Yahoo-ish experience. There's lots of polish: pull-to-refresh for new stories, the clever "visual" view, the smooth scrolling. It's a fine news app, and Yahoo uses good sources to populate the stories. And it may be just be its overall blandness that makes it a perfect Yahoo app: This isn't Google or Apple behind the scenes--it's friendly, neutral Yahoo.
