Editors' Review

by   / July 29, 2014

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.
