    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:
    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.

    tried the yahoo mail app and it was a little disappointing. I deleted it and went back to using stock email app.

    new Yahoo app

    Tried it. Liked it. But still looking for ability to "sign out" to check other Yahoo mail identities. Tried setting up a different icon on screen but it uses same one used in other icon. Also, I noticed an annoying ad in the middle of my inbox list of messages. Ugh!
