Readers might recall that back in the summer we released our first version of Yahoo! Mail for Android. We’ve been pleased with the success of both Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! Messenger on the Android platform, but of course we never stop looking for ways to make the apps even better. To that end we’ve been reading all your suggestions, and polishing the app, leading up to today’s launch of the new Yahoo! Mail app in the Android Market. So what’s it all about?
- Multiple Accounts: Probably the biggest request we had from users was for the ability to add multiple Yahoo! Mail accounts. Well we heard you loud and clear! You can now add accounts and swap seamlessly between them.
- Photo Browsing: If you’ve used our mobile Web HTML5 site for iOS devices you’ll be familiar with our photo features. When you receive an email with photo attachments we give you a fast preview, right in the inbox.
- Mail, IM and Video: When you install Yahoo! Messenger on your device, you’ll be able to see the online presence of your contacts from within Mail. With one tap of a contact you can trigger a new message, view contact details, start an IM, and even begin a video call without ever leaving Yahoo! Mail.
- Contact Sync: You can now access your Yahoo! Contacts from your device contacts app with ease, wherever you are in the operating system.
You can visit the Android Market to download the apps to your phone today. Leave us a comment and tell us what you think, or send us feedback directly from the apps. We really do read every message, so if you have a great idea for the next version we’d love to hear about it!
