Winter Garden, FL – July 1, 2010 – (WiredPRNews) Imagine the excitement the 275+ million Yahoo Mail users experienced this morning upon finding that today Yahoo has released mail and messenger apps for Android phones. Along with the release of new mail and messenger apps, the company has also released a search widget for Android.
The HTC Evo, Motorola Droid and other Android devices owners that have been patiently waiting for a Yahoo Mail app can now ditch the work arounds that simply rerouted their Yahoo mailbox. Yahoo’s Mail app comes with all the features and functionality needed for easy communication. Once downloaded from the Android Marketplace, users of the Yahoo Mail app will have access to notifications for new email messages and the ability to search their mailbox by sender, recipient, subject or keywords. Users can also send messages from both their Yahoo and phone address books, attach photos to emails directly from the phone’s camera or photo gallery, and view or download attachments.
Apple users experienced an upgrade as well with new and faster HTML5-based Yahoo Mail and News sites for iPhone and iPod touch. This upgrade allows users to view HTML messages, compose rich text messages – even search emails and access folders while offline. Surfacing photos and video attachments directly within the mail preview is now possible as well.
