Yahoo Aviate gains new powers with ‘Smart Stream’

Yahoo’s Aviate home screen launcher gets even smarter this week with the introduction of a new Smart Stream feature. Not unlike what Google Now does for users, Smart Stream adjusts itself throughout the day to deliver timely and relevant information to the user. What’s more, it can also offer up details and tidbits based on location.

Aviate is designed to replace the stock app launcher for your Android phone. Owned by Yahoo, it’s a different approach to the stuff you might find preloaded on your handset. Aviate is a free download and works with devices running 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher.

Imagine you’re walking downtown in San Francisco on a Saturday around noon. We’ll surface nearby restaurants so that you can find a yummy place to eat. When the Giants game starts at 1pm, we’ll bring you live sports scores. If you plug in your headphones, we’ll pull your music apps up to the top of your Smart Stream. If there’s ever a specific card you’re looking for, you can always access it with the Focus menu, located in the search bar on your homescreen.


If you are looking for a different approach to launching apps and games, Aviate should be high on your list. It gets smarter with each update and the configuration options are quite user-friendly. We’re fond of this one and think you’d enjoy it.
