Yahoo has introduced a new Mail app for iPad and Android tablets. It comes with a new full-screen experience, which lets users flip through their email as if they were reading a magazine (or another tablet app).
"With amazing displays, vibrant colors and lifelike images, tablets have changed the way we experience books, photos, movies and more. Yet email, something we do every day, has remained pretty much the same," says Lee Parry, Senior Director, Mobile & Emerging Products at Yahoo, in a post on the Yahoo Mail Blog. "We’ve been boxed in."
"There are no folders, no buttons, no tabs – just you and your mail – and you can easily flip through it like a magazine," he says of the new offering. "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."
The app lets you delete or file messages in bulk, group them by sender, and delete/star/move them by swiping.
