Yahoo! Mail Enhanced with New Apps
Article by George Norman

Yahoo!’s email client, Yahoo! Mail is making the news once again and for all the good reasons – this time it is because the “smarting up process” that kicked off last year when the first apps where introduced to the new Yahoo! Mail inbox is moving on in an effort to make your inbox cooler (and more useful). I said “this time” because this is not the first time this month that Yahoo! Mail has something interesting to announce. Before this there was the news that the search feature in Yahoo! Mail is powerful enough to look inside attachments (details here); then there was the news that you could sort emails by Contacts and Connections (details here).

Getting back to the issue at hand, here is what Product Manager with Yahoo! Mail, Mark Risher, had to comment: “We’re launching a handful of new and VERY cool apps in Yahoo! Mail — all focused on enabling you to do more, share more and save time in Mail. Applications from PayPal, Zumo Drive, Picnik, OtherInbox and Photobucket cover the gamut on common tasks you handle online, from transferring money to photosharing to sending large files. We’ve reduced the number of times you have to visit multiple destinations on the Web to get things done.”


You should be able to see the new apps the next time you log into your Yahoo! Mail account - they are located along the left side of the inbox. If you do not see them, you can sign up to use them here. These apps and the functionality they provide come free of charge; the catch is that they are available to US users only and among them only to those using the new Yahoo! Mail, not the ones using the Classic inbox.

Speaking of functionality, here is what you can expect to get from Yahoo! Mail’s new apps:
PayPal: the same request/send money functionality, but straight from your Yahoo! Mail window.
Zumo Drive: send and share files online, as long as they are not larger than 100MB.
Picnik: lets you crop, add effects, and further edit photos available online or stored in your inbox. You can save the photos to a local drive, post them online or send them via email.
My Photos by Xoopit: you can organize and share all the photos you have stored in your inbox.
