Yahoo!’s new Weather app for iOS and the new Yahoo! Mail for iPad and Android tablets is now available.
The new Yahoo Mail app is optimized for the larger screen, with no folders, no buttons, no tabs – just you and your mail – and you can easily flip through it like a magazine.
“We’ve designed Yahoo! Mail to take full advantage of the tablet making reading your email faster, easier and just a little bit more fun,” writes Yahoo.
In addition, the new Mail apps, helps you quickly select your messages, automatically group by sender, and with a swipe – delete, star, or move them all.
Here is a complete list of features:
- “Tap the full-screen button in the lower left corner of your message to expand it across the entire screen. If you want to reply, delete, file or star a message simply tap anywhere on the screen and Yahoo! Mail’s familiar icons will appear.
- To move to the next message on your iPad, simply swipe, as if you’re turning the page in a magazine.
- To flip through messages even faster, simply tap on the side of the screen to rapidly scan through your inbox.
- Focus on the messages you care about most with a new feature that lets you easily sort by sender in Yahoo! Mail’s split-screen view.
- Select a message in your inbox on the left side of the screen by checking the box that appears with the email. You will then see that sender’s name appear on the right side of your screen.
- Swipe on the sender’s name and you will see Yahoo! Mail’s familiar icons appear to delete, file, star or mark as unread or spam.
- You’ll also see a plus sign that will indicate how many more messages you have from that sender. If you select that, it will pull all the messages from that sender and then you can star, delete or file them all at once. Just think – you can easily take control of your inbox with just a few taps.”
Yahoo! had also recently integrated Dropbox into Yahoo! Mail–making it easier for you to send, receive, share and manage your attachments.
“To save one or more files to Dropbox in Yahoo! Mail, open the attachment and click the ‘Save to Dropbox’ button. Save your file to the default Yahoo! Mail folder within Dropbox, or click ‘More Options’ to create and name a new Dropbox folder for your file.
To send a new attachment from Dropbox in Yahoo! Mail, select the dropdown next to the paperclip icon in Yahoo! Mail and select ‘Share from Dropbox’. The Dropbox Chooser will pop up so you can select the files you want to share then see them automatically appear as attachments within the email you’re composing.
And if you need to send a large file (>25MB), you can simply drag and drop the attachment into your email, but send it through Dropbox.”
Yahoo has also released a new “Weather app” for iPhone, iPod and iPod touch – a window into the places you care about.
Inside the app, you’ll find stunning snapshots of weather around the world. With just a tilt of your phone, get lost scrolling through photos reflecting the current weather in places that matter to you.
And, to get the details–just tap the temperature for a quick view of the forecast or scroll down for precipitation, wind and pressure, a radar map, and more.
