Yahoo Sports Windows 8 app launched as Lenovo exclusive

While we wait for Microsoft to pull the trigger on new updates for its in-house Windows 8 apps, the Windows Store has added an interesting new third party app to its library, and it's apparently one that's only for Lenovo-based Windows 8 PCs.

The new addition is the official Yahoo Sports app, and it showed up in the Windows Store as part of a quick search of the storefront on a Lenovo Yoga 13 PC. The app is labeled in the store as a "Lenovo exclusive" and indeed it does not show up when searching for the same app on other Windows 8 PCs. It's likely that Lenovo has a timed exclusive for the Yahoo Sports app and that it will appear for other Windows 8 PCs at some point in the near future.

The Sports news division of Yahoo is considered one of the best on the Internet and frequently gets major news scoops and store. The Windows 8 Yahoo Sports app offers up much of that news content, along with exclusive blogs.

While the Yahoo Sports Windows 8 app has selections for other types of sports in its menu, the app itself only shows live coverage and scores for NFL, NBA and college football games. Selecting other sports in the app menu takes you out of the app and into a web browser where you can check out the coverage on the Yahoo Sports web site. Hopefully the Yahoo Sports app will be expanded at some point and add other sports coverage in the app itself.
