To celebrate the 16th birthday of Yahoo Mail, Yahoo is releasing new apps on Android, iOS, and desktop throughout the day. The new apps introduce user interface tweaks that utilize conversation views, similar to what you have probably been experiencing in Gmail for years. Conversations, as you know, group your ongoing mail chats so that you can see entire conversations in a single view. But that’s not all.
Yahoo is made things like search, starring, and deleting into one-click actions that appear when you hover over an email. They are letting you hide the left-hand toolbar, so that you can be more productive (could be desktop version only). Previously reserved features for premium members are now free, including disposable email addresses, enhanced filters and automatic message forwarding.
And last, the new apps can take advantage of “visually rich themes, including curated Flickr photos, for your browser, smartphone and tablet.”
