Yahoo! Weather & Yahoo! Mail on mobile

22 Apr,2013

By A Correspondent


Yahoo! has announced two new mobile experiences – Yahoo! Weather for iPhone (also iPod, and iPod Touch) and Yahoo! Mail for iPad and Android tablets. Images from the Flickr community show current local conditions, with forecast details, so that instead of reading about the weather users can now see the weather.


Yahoo!’s goal is to have amazing photos for every weather condition that cover the globe – morning, afternoon, and night – across every city in the world. Users can submit photos of their favourite places to the Yahoo! Flickr group.


Yahoo! Mail for tablet brings users a new email experience, with a lean-back, magazine-style feel.


* Tap the full-screen button in the lower left corner of your message to expand it across the entire screen. If you want to reply, delete, file or star a message simply tap anywhere on the screen and Yahoo! Mail’s familiar icons will appear.

* To move to the next message on your iPad, simply swipe, as if you’re turning the page in a magazine.

* To flip through messages even faster, simply tap on the side of the screen to rapidly scan through your inbox.

* Focus on the messages you care about most with a new feature that lets you easily sort by sender in Yahoo! Mail’s split-screen view.

* Select a message in your inbox on the left side of the screen by checking the box that appears with the email. You will then see that sender’s name appear on the right side of your screen.

* Swipe on the sender’s name and you will see Yahoo! Mail’s familiar icons appear to delete, file, star or mark as unread or spam.

* You’ll also see a plus sign that will indicate how many more messages you have from that sender. If you select that, it will pull all the messages from that sender and then you can star, delete or file them all at once. Just think – you can easily take control of your inbox with just a few taps.
