Yahoo shows off apps for Apple Watch: Weather, Sports Fantasy, & two News apps

Yahoo today announced its plans to bring four of its apps to Apple Watch in time for the device’s April 24th launch date.

Yahoo is planning to update its Yahoo Weather, Yahoo Sports Fantasy, Yahoo News Digest, and Yahoo News Hong Kong apps with support for Apple’s new wearable, today giving a first look at the experience. 

The company provided a breakdown of what you can expect to see on your Apple Watch with each of the apps:

  • Yahoo Weather App on Apple Watch will feature morning updates and evening forecasts through notifications. With a Glance, users can find out if it’s a t-shirt or sweater day with Yahoo’s new “feels like” feature, or learn more about the conditions outside by tapping into the app.
  • With the Yahoo Sports Fantasy App, users can see what’s going on in their matchups or check on their lineup for injuries with a Glance. They can even talk smack with their league using the Apple Watch dictation feature.
  • Yahoo News Digest brings users in the U.S. the most important story on the hour, every hour so they are always up-to-date. Enjoy new microsummaries, visual atoms such as a map, stock ticker or infographic that bring the story to life, and a brand new speed reading feature to get you in-the-know in seconds.
  • With the Yahoo News Hong Kong App, users in Hong Kong will receive breaking news delivered to their wrist and enjoy the top 10 headlines of the hour with a Glance.

Here’s a look at the News Digest and News Hong Kong apps:

You can expect updates to the Yahoo Weather, Yahoo Sports Fantasy, Yahoo News Digest, and Yahoo News Hong Kong apps by April 24th.

You all remember CARROT, right? The sadistic, sarcastic artificial intelligence that powers a collection of productivity and fitness applications has returned for a fifth app. The latest piece of software to join the CARROT family is CARROT Weather.

As you may have gathered from the title, this new app helps you track current and upcoming weather conditions with the snark that only CARROT can really nail. The Weather app is much simpler in presentation than its predecessors, but it’s just as robust as you’ve come to expect from this line of apps.

In March we reported on a new jailbreak tweak called ProWidgets that introduced a whole suite of widgets to the iOS 7 Notification Center. With today’s release of iOS 8, Avanio Labs, the company created by Alan Yip, has released several native widgets for the new operating system. These new add-ons will help you keep track of your calendar and to-do list, monitor the weather, and perform a ton of useful actions on the text stored in your clipboard.

The first of these is Agenda+, which you can see in the screenshots above. Agenda+ combines a list view of your calendar events with a summary of your iOS Reminders. iOS typically breaks these two up into separate widgets, with the Calendar widget showing a full timeline of your day (which can take up a lot of space depending on how many events you have and how late in the day they are).
