Yahoo! Mail gets an overhaul for iOS, Android, and Windows 8, but Yahoo has to learn Photoshop better
The new Yahoo! Mail will have a consistent look that is rolling out to all platforms starting from the Windows 8 desktop and the web, and going to iOS and Android.
The update brings a cleaner look, with a more intuitive inbox across platforms.
Weirdly, the new look is coming as an iPhone and iPod touch-only app with no iPad support. Here is Yahoo CEO Mayer explaining the ideas behind this update:
You’ve told us loud and clear that you want fewer distractions when it comes to email. You want to quickly login, communicate, and get on with your day. And we’ve listened. Starting today, the new Yahoo! Mail is fast, easy and available anywhere you go. These improvements will be available on all major platforms: Web, Windows 8, iPhone/iPod touch and Android.
We’ve redesigned the new version of Yahoo! Mail with speed in mind — getting through your emails is faster than ever before. We’ve also made your inbox more intuitive and easier to navigate, allowing you to focus on what matters most: your messages. And, because mobile is everything these days, Yahoo! Mail now has a consistent look and feel across devices.”
A curious little fact is that Yahoo has just gone over the top with Photoshop here as the Android app depicted running on a Samsung Galaxy S III is clearly not true to reality. The Galaxy S III does not have on screen buttons (the Nexus devices do), so for whatever reason Yahoo has clearly decided to Photoshop the wrong screenshot on top of a Galaxy S III placeholder image.

Nope MILLIONS still use it for their email. I do.. I use Yahoo FAR more than Facebook. So rumors of its demise I believe have been highly overrated.

Ya this thing is useless to me since I can't seem to find how to add multiple accounts on it so I won't be using it till they add that feature or I figure out how to add another account to it.

New webdesign sucks and is hard to read.. its almost all white, and fonts are thin. Doesn't bolden the folder new emails come too, and you cant resize the folder frame to actually see the whole folder name.

Yep tried Gmail.. I NEED my folders. I only wish I could have folders for my folders. 10 years of archived emails and such its getting crowded in there :)
That said the new Outlook.com is looking good.. I may switch to it.
