Yahoo has launched an iPad app they call a "living magazine". The app, called Livestand, is vaguely like Flipboard, but pulls content from Yahoo websites and more than 100 publications.

One of the stars of the show was Livestand from Yahoo!, a personalized living magazine designed first for iPad and available to download today, free from the App Store in the U.S. Livestand weaves together content from more than 100 publications, including, ABC News, Forbes, Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Sports, Yahoo! Finance and omg! – with more being added every week.

And the more you use Livestand, the more personalized it becomes. It’s easily tailored to your own passions and interests, wrapping great content in a visually rich, stunning design that features videos, photos, and intuitive navigation. Livestand is also built on many of Yahoo!’s most important technical innovations. If you’re a techie kind of person, head on over to our Yahoo! Developer Blog to hear about the newest of these technologies, Cocktails.

Oh Yahoo!!! I look forward to reading all about what some pop star wore out to a dance club last night. Or precious footage of somebody hitting a baseball really far.

Yahoo used to be google. Then it turned into a dysfunctional clusterbang. Then its ragged carcass was picked apart by MS and a few other piranhas. What was left markets trash to 12 year old girls and bored housewives.

Sad.

Been using app for about an hour now.
I am unimpressed with the speed, the transitions are lacking, the UI obnoxious and the selection sparse. Overall a pretty mediocre app. Use Flipboard instead.

Customers? It's a free app so we're talking about users, not customers. If you don't like Yahoo, just say so....
