The new Yahoo Mail is faster and more easy to use

The popular email platform Yahoo Mail finally got the needed redesign. Improvements come from the requests from the users, but also because of the needs to provide good service for the web and various mobile platforms such as Windows 8, iOS and Android.

"You’ve told us loud and clear that you want fewer distractions when it comes to email. You want to quickly login, communicate, and get on with your day. And we’ve listened,"stated Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo, and former vice president Local, Maps, and Location Services."Starting today, the new Yahoo! Mail is fast, easy and available anywhere you go. These improvements will be available on all major platforms: Web, Windows 8, iPhone/iPod touch and Android."

The Web version now has a simplified design with fewer buttons and more space for reading and writing e-mails, and small images which show the file attached to the message. The goal, says Ms. Mayer, is to speed up Yahoo Mail and easier navigation with greater focus on the content of messages.

The version for iPhone is renewed with the option to quickly delete messages just by moving your fingers, continuous scrolling of messages and the option for attaching pictures in a new message. The Android version got improvements in speed and battery usage, and the Windows 8 version has the option for start up screen.
