Yahoo just made a couple of Yahoo Mail announcements. The iOS app is getting new customizable swipes and a recent attachments feature. The Android app is getting the swipes and new actionable notifications.

Here's what Yahoo says about new swipes for iOS (you can see the explanation for Android here):

Swipes are one of the fastest ways people clean up their inbox. However, everyone uses email and actions differently. Now you can personalize your swipes with your favorite actions, including “star,” “move to folder” and “archive” (if you have multiple mailboxes) to help you save time. Just open your “Settings” and choose “Swipe actions.”

On iOS, when you compose an email, you can now see all recently received photos and file attachments with a search bar to find what you're looking for. Also, new is the ability to create, delete and rename folders and subfolders, which was only available on desktop before.

You can also now star and mark emails as spam when you multi-select emails. This is also available on Android.

Also on Android, you can now take action on incoming emails from the notification.
