News: The New Yahoo Mail App: Your Mail, News and Info – in one glance

Mid of August, Yahoo announced the launch of its new Yahoo Mail app for both iOS and Android users in Singapore,  so that not just email but all information that’s most important to you every day is right at your fingertips.

The multi-talented app surfaces the information you search for every day– your email, news, weather and more — all in one place or app. The app is designed with a focus on simplicity: it’s the familiar Yahoo Mail experience, plus one-tap access to personalized, real-time information.

When you first open the Yahoo Mail app, your main page will be Yahoo Mail inbox. You’ll also see a new panel with icons for Mail, News and Today on your screens.

This is where all your news, information, and communications come together in one integrated experience.  The new Yahoo Mail on Android comes with a couple of unique features, simply swipe left or right or tap the relevant icon in the upper right-hand corner of your screen to quickly and seamlessly move between your inbox, news stream, and Today.

As part of this update, Yahoo is also introducing a new experience when you search for people in your inbox. When you start typing a name, Yahoo Mail offers smart search suggestions — including both people and messages — to help you narrow down your search. The app filters your search results by messages, files or photos, and you can easily scroll through them to find what you’re looking for.

When you’re finished reading and replying to your email, a quick tap on the News icon will show you what’s happening in the world around. From latest political developments, to business and economy to celebrity gossip – you will find all the news in the visually rich news stream.

In the Today icon you’ll find a snapshot of the information you care about most every day — from your local weather to a news digest and images from Flickr.

We’re excited to bring you the latest version of Yahoo Mail for iOS and Android phones, and we hope you find it to be a simple way to access your email, news, and other information all within a single app.

To enjoy this integrated and personalized experience in the new Yahoo Mail app, go to the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
