One day ahead of the iPad launch, Yahoo announced today that its "Yahoo! Entertainment" app is now already available on the iPad app store. TV listings, entertainment reviews, and exclusive video content are all part of the package.

The app, which is a free download, seems to be very feature-rich. One draw of the app is that it will use the iPad's built-in geo-tracking technology to determine where the user is, and instantly provide the latest TV listings for the area.

Additionally, much of Yahoo's entertainment content from its online portal will be transferred over, including everything from celebrity gossip to the latest box office reviews.

Yahoo's own original video content will also be streamable directly from the app. Such content includes programs like "Yahoo! Sports Minute" and the "Tech Ticker." Other Yahoo-hosted videos, which it pulls in from external media outlets, will also be available.

Yahoo says it is "the first of many engaging experiences" that it's working on for the iPad.
