Yahoo's New iPhone Mail App Adds New Features For iOS(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Yahoo recently released an update for its mail app that allows users to look at many different services without ever having to leave the app.

“We’ve designed it with a focus on simplicity: it’s the familiar Yahoo Mail experience, plus one-tap access to personalized, real-time information,” writes Yahoo Mail Senior Product Manager, Andrew Molyneux, on the company’s blog.

The redesigned Yahoo Mail app now features three tabs on the bottom of the screen, “Mail”, “News”, and “Today,” with each bringing different content for “one integrated experience.”

The “News” icon delivers information about everything from the latest celebrity gossip to political news, while the “Today” section features snapshots of personalized information such as weather, stock quotes, sports scores, and more.

“This is where all your news, information, and communications come together in one integrated experience.”

Yahoo’s update, version 3.0, will be rolling out to iPhone and iPod Touch users within the next few weeks on Apple’s App Store.
