Editors' review

Yahoo Mail's free Android app not only lets you access multiple Yahoo Mail accounts on the go, but also view the latest news and search the Web from Yahoo's portal. The free app offers an easy message formatting plus the ability to attach files and images with a few taps, multiple news categories, the ability to save stories for later, local weather forecasts, and more.

Pros

Quick setup: Yahoo Mail basically set itself up, importing account data and messages from our existing Yahoo Mail accounts, including archived messages.

Full formatting: It's easier to format email messages with italics, boldface, font colors, and attachments with Yahoo Mail's app than it is with many full-featured Web mail clients.

Safe Search: Enabling the Web search tool's Safe Search option helps keep unwanted and unwelcome search results from showing up.

News digest: Categorized new digests list stories in scrolling summaries with photos and social media links. Tapping Read More opened a more detailed summary and an easy-to-read text story.

Cons

Account access: We'd like the ability to configure and manage our email accounts more fully from Yahoo's Android app instead of the Web portal.

Bottom Line

Yahoo Mail has an attractive layout, versatile message composition options, and access to Yahoo's news and Web features. Yahoo Mail's free Android app not only lets you access multiple Yahoo Mail accounts on the go but also view the latest news and search the Web from Yahoo's portal. The free app offers easy message formatting, plus the ability to attach files and images with a few taps, multiple news categories, the ability to save stories for later, local weather forecasts, and more.

    "3.0.3 is pretty... pretty inconvenient."

    October 13, 2013   |   By mrichardashley

    Version: Yahoo Mail 2.6.6

    Pros

    It's petty

    Cons

    When I delete an email, the app used to advance to the next email in line, now the email remains on screen until I go back to the inbox. It's inconvenient and requires extra, time-wasting steps.

    The app no longer allows me to advance to the next email without returning to my inbox. Again, it requires needless extra steps.

    I used to be able to swipe to the side to go from one email to the next, but that function is no longer supported.

    Summary

    The latest version is slow to use and inconvenient. I hate it and wish I could revert to an older version.

    When I delete an email the app used to advance to the next email in line, now the email remains on screen until I go back to the inbox. It's inconvenient and requires extra (wasted) steps.

    The app no longer allows me to advance to the next email without returning to my inbox. Agin, it requires needless extra steps. I used to be able to swipe to the side to go from one email to the next, but that function is no longer supported.

    These really seem like simple things. When I delete and email, I don't want to keep looking at it. Make it go away and show me the next one. When I'm ready to go on to the next email I should be able to advance without having to return to the inbox. Why does yahoo suddenly want me to return to the inbox all the time. It makes no sense.

    The new app is pretty, but inconvenient to use. I don't know why they took out the convenient functions, just to replace them with a pretty background. I'd rather have a faster less pretty email app. I used to prefer this app to apples mail app on my ipod, but now it's FAR less usable.

    Yahoo should spend less time redesigning logos and adding pretty pictures and more time making sure there products actually work. Just a suggestion.

    Review for Yahoo mail app as used on a google nexus 7.

    "Slow ass... with version 3.0.3 on my Nexus 4 w/ 4.3"

    October 13, 2013   |   By PiCASSiMO

    Version: Yahoo Mail 2.6.6

    Pros

    Theme colours can be chosen

    Cons

    Theme colours are chosen and then changed automatically to some other colour. Slow as hell. Can't believe it takes at least 10 to 30 seconds for each of my e-mails to show up.

    Summary

    Wished I can undo the installation and revert back to the previous version. If you know how, please let me know.
