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.
When you first open the Yahoo Mail app, you’ll see your Yahoo Mail inbox and a new panel with icons for Mail, News and Today at the bottom of the screen. This is where all your news, information, and communications come together in one integrated experience.
When you’re finished reading and replying to your email, see what’s happening in the world by tapping on the News icon. From celebrity gossip to the latest political news, you’ll find it in your personalized, visually rich news stream.
Let’s head over to the Today icon. Here’s where you’ll find a snapshot of the information you care about most every day and search — from your local weather to a news digest to the latest stock quotes and sports scores you care about.
We’re excited to bring you the latest version of Yahoo Mail for iPhone and iPod touch, and we hope you find it to be a simple way to access your Mail, news, and other information all within a single app. We’ll be rolling this out in the App Store to U.S. users over the next the couple of weeks. We would love to hear what you think, so please send us your feedback!
The app is now available in select international markets as of August 6, 2014.
