Earlier this year Yahoo introduced a new version of its Mail app for iPhone that added additional content like web search, sports scores, weather information, and news events to the email client making the experience more like the web experience in terms of consuming content. Today Yahoo released an updated version which extends the web-like experience to the iPad version as well:
The new Yahoo Mail for iPad includes everything you’ll find in the recently redesigned Yahoo Mail for mobile — email, news, weather, finance, sports, and videos — along with some fresh additions.
On the News section you can now enjoy Yahoo’s latest Digital Magazines – Yahoo Food, Yahoo Beauty, Yahoo Movies, Yahoo Tech and Yahoo Travel – and easily access them from the side panel. Yahoo Digital Magazines are just like your favorite glossy magazines created for the digital world. Inspired by visually driven storytelling, they carry distinctive editorial voices from well-known tastemakers such as Julia Bainbridge, Paula Froelich, David Pogue, Josh Wolk and Bobbi Brown.
The update also introduces support for creating and editing filters for dealing with email on both the iPhone and iPad version. Yahoo Mail 3.1 is available today on the App Store.
