Yahoo announced that they are updating the Yahoo mail app for iOS users with new features. The new app not only shows the mail inbox when you turn it on but it also gives you a new panel with icons for things like News and a Today tab at the bottom of the screen. So the first tab remains the same. The second tab features a personalized news stream that shows you everything from the latest celebrity gossip to political news. The third tab gives you a glimpse of the information that interests you the most and search for it daily, like the local weather, stock quotes, another news digest and the latest sports scores.
Yahoo said about the adding of the new features that: “We rely on our mobile devices for many things throughout the day — to check email, search, read news, catch up on sports, follow stocks, look up the forecast, and watch videos among others. Today we’re introducing a new Yahoo Mail app for iPhone and iPod touch so all the information that’s most important to you is right at your fingertips. We’ve designed it with a focus on simplicity: it’s the familiar Yahoo Mail experience, plus one-tap access to personalized, real-time information.”
Some may see the new Yahoo Mail App for IOS features like an uninteresting update since the new functions are kind of unrelated to each other. The Yahoo Mail 3.0 for IOS doesn’t really have anything mail related so it might seem like Yahoo is out of ideas. We think that they should focus more on their search engine and stop releasing stuff that doesn’t really bring anything new on our iPhones.
Yahoo Mail App For IOS – It doesn’t bring anything new
The Yahoo Mail App For IOS features updates for iPhone IOS 7 and it supposedly improved their previous performances on their mail app. Yahoo also claims that they’ve fixed some of the bugs in the app.
The new features look like a basic version of Google Now and Bing and are only available in the US.
What do you think about the Yahoo Mail App For IOS? Do you use it on your iPhone? Do you consider it an improved or even an updated version of the previous mail app or is it something that doesn’t really bring anything new to what was already on there?
