New Yahoo Mail Launches For iOS

A new, improved, updated and better looking and better performing mail service from Yahoo has launched today for a number of services, including iOS.

Mac Rumors picked up the news, and according to Yahoo’s CEO, Marissa Meyer…

We’ve redesigned the new version of Yahoo! Mail with speed in mind – getting through your emails is faster than ever before. We’ve also made your inbox more intuitive and easier to navigate, allowing you to focus on what matters most: your messages. And, because mobile is everything these days, Yahoo! Mail now has a consistent look and feel across devices.

This is exceptionally good news for everyone who enjoyed using Yahoo’s mail service but hated the poor compatibility and performance across mobile OS devices.

Vivek Sharma, General Manager of Yahoo Mail also had some things to share about the new compatibility and fixes that Yahoo implemented to the mail service, saying…

Our new, native apps have been built for speed. You can easily scan your inbox and quickly triage – starring important messages that need follow-up, filing messages to folders and deleting unimportant ones – all from the inbox. With infinite scroll, you can quickly find emails from last month or even, last year.

They’ve also tweaked load times and page flips, so you’ll spend less time getting to your mail and more time reading it. According to Sharma, a collective of 36 million minutes will be saved each day checking mail via Yahoo on a mobile device.

The Yahoo Mail app for mobile devices is currently available on the app store, for free.
