Are you a regular at the Zynga Poker table? Catch yourself yelling “Bingo!” at work? (Don’t worry… we won’t tell). At Yahoo! Mail, we recognize that users are interacting with apps from all over the Web, so we want make it easier for your apps to communicate with you.
Yahoo! Mail will now let you know when you’ve received a notification from your favorite Yahoo! or Zynga app. When you receive an email from a Zynga game or Yahoo! App, a notification will appear in the new Recent Apps Activity module on the What’s New page in Yahoo! Mail. That means you’ll see e-mails for free chips, coupons, or points front-and-center when you sign into Yahoo! Mail.
If you haven’t started using apps on Yahoo!, it’s easy to get started. Just log into your Yahoo! account and go to your Yahoo! Pulse page. From there click the “Apps” button on the bottom-left of the page and start searching for apps that interest you. My personal favorites are Mafia Wars and Nike Football. I highly recommend them!
Keep your eye out for the new Recent App Activity module – it will only appear when you have an unread email from an app. As always, please let us know what you think. Happy gaming!
