    Yahoo! Mail, Messenger, and Search Now Available on Market


    Remember the days when there was no support on Android for Yahoo! mail? Well, those days are long since gone, as the Eclair update on the Motorola Droid included Yahoo! support. However, to those still stuck on Cupcake/Donut, there have been limited choices of how to view your Yahoo! e-mail.

    Well, today there is no need to worry any longer. Yahoo's official e-mail app, Yahoo! Mail is fresh on the Android Market; you can download it now! Also as an added bonus, you will also find Yahoo! Messenger and Yahoo! Search on the Android Market as well.

    And of course these apps are free. Here's a list of features:
    With the new Yahoo! Mail App for Android, consumers can:

    • Receive push notification of new email messages
    • Send emails to contacts from the Yahoo! Address Book as well as contacts in the native phone address book
    • Search email messages by sender, recipient, subject and keywords in the body of the email
    • Upload photos as attachments directly from camera or the photo gallery
    • View and download attachments
    • Insert emoticons and rich text formatting into emails
    • Effectively manage and organize their Yahoo! Mail messages, folders and manage spam
    • Toggle between the Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! Messenger apps with ease

    With the new Yahoo! Messenger App for Android, consumers can:

    • Easily message friends, check friends’ status updates & availability as well as update their own status & availability
    • Send instant messages to friends via SMS text messages*
    • Stay connected with full support for multitasking allowing the app to work in the background; with push notifications consumers can easily catch new messages and friend requests
    • Full use of emoticons and rich text formatting
    • Send photos to friends directly from the phone’s camera or the photo gallery
    It seems that Yahoo! has entered the Android arena rather late, but it is nice to see Android is continually gaining support from large companies. Our main question for you, does anybody even use Yahoo! anymore? Let us know.

    thanks to dirtydogg for the tip

    I do. I much prefer the messenger interface to AIM.

    Oh, wait, that was a rhetorical question? Oh well.

    Been using e-buddy on my phone since I got it and I don't see myself switching now, but it's still nice to see that it's there if I need it. I may even try it.

    I use yahoo and have before there was a google, PHPBB, PHP, LINUX, AIM, DROID, Blackberry, Facebook, Myspace, Zoosk, Amazon, Verizon, T-mobile, and Sprint. So its good to know that everyone can still get a hold of me with he same email for all those years. I also have a gmail account, but I'm glad to hear that Yahoo will be working on my Droid X that I reserved at Best Buy.

    yes it is a GREAT interface....I just wish that we can LONG PRESS the e mail and it will give us the option to delete, foward etc.....nothing happens if you long press.....you have to hit the "4 line" button on the phone...bring up the options...then click again....
    no biggie...but it willsave a few steps

    Yahoo Mail has always worked on my Droid via the manual setup. Are there any advantages (or more features) to using their app?

    I just did and I like it. One thing though, do NOT look for it in your apps under "Y" for Yahoo. It's in "M" for Mail.
