CNET Editors' review
Yahoo Mail for Android gives you quick access to your Yahoo e-mail account (or multiple accounts) right from your mobile device. As a mobile mail client, we really couldn't ask for more. It's clean, user-friendly, and it includes some added bonuses that make it feel very much like its desktop counterpart. For instance, composing messages is a much richer experience than in other mobile e-mail apps, thanks to all the formatting tools that Yahoo Mail offers. It lets you make text bold, italicized, or underlined. It even lets you change font color, size, or add emoticons.
Overall, we think Yahoo Mail is a winner. It does everything you need it to, plus it offers some nice features like formatting, push notifications, and integrated Yahoo Messenger. If you have a Yahoo e-mail address, it is an absolute must.
We are aware some of you are having issues while attempting to view an email. To resolve this issue open settings > About Yahoo Mail > Clear Cache. You should then be able to see your email messages post clearing your local cache. Sorry for the inconvenience.Stay connected

"3.0.3 is pretty... pretty inconvenient."
Version: Yahoo Mail 2.6.6
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.
The latest version is slow to use and inconvenient. I hate it and wish I could revert to an older version.

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"
Version: Yahoo Mail 2.6.6
Theme colours can be chosen
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.
Wished I can undo the installation and revert back to the previous version. If you know how, please let me know.
