(APF Relaxnews) – The most recent version of the Yahoo! Mail application brings a large group of qualities and functions that have already found success in increasingly famous email applications like Outlook and Inbox.
Taking after a major redesign in autumn 2015, the Yahoo! Mail application has been updated with a set of new functions. A group of messages can now be moved or deleted by pressing and holding the selection. Furthermore, it’s possible to toggle easily between Google, Outlook, AOL or a few Yahoo! accounts. A set of customizable swipe controls have arrived as well, so swiping a message in the inbox left or right can check it as read, archive it, mark it as spam, move it to another folder or erase it totally.
Yahoo! Mail is available to download free of charge from Apple’s App Store (iOS) or Google Play (Android).
These are functions that have already been seen in other well known email applications, specifically, Outlook. Microsoft’s application is one of the most function-rich and innovative mobile email applications out there. It can deal with a user’s different email accounts, calendars and files all in one handy application. Outlook likewise uses swipe actions for a quick way to sort a long list of emails.
While Yahoo! Mail and Outlook can be connected to accounts from other email services, Google’s Inbox can only be used with Gmail accounts. Google is always improving with this application, including functions like the new Smart Reply tool which analyzes messages then recommends three short template responses based on their content.
The application can even add real-time information relating to a message’s content, for example, the status of an online order. For an restaurant reservation, Inbox will automatically add a map to the confirmation email.
One of the primary competitors for Google’s Inbox is Mailbox, a service that is set to close on February 26, 2016. Created by Dropbox, it should shake up the way we use email by letting users sort and archive messages in a new and intuitive way. Users can sort messages into lists, archive them or save them for later, keeping the inbox mess free.
