The failing Internet pioneer Yahoo today announced a major update for its mobile email application.
Bumped to version 4.3, Yahoo Mail for iOS introduces new third-party integrations allowing you to add cloud files directly from your Google Drive or Dropbox to your messages as attachments, or add animated GIFs to your emails from Tumblr, which is another Yahoo-owned property.
The compose interface makes it easy to choose among Tumblr's most popular GIFs of the moment, search for that perfect GIF or browse GIF categories including Love, LOL, Cute, Cheers, Fail, Happy and more. GIFs are added to your emails as attachments.
Apple's Safari browser has a unified search/address field at the top of the page, called the Smart Search Search field, which lets you enter a URL or search term, access search suggestions, history items and more.
We've already detailed the process of turning off Search Engine Suggestions for those who don’t want to see suggested search terms and today we're going to take a closer look at a setting that permits you to change your default search engine in Safari.
Yahoo today announced it's re-launching its venerable messaging software—Yahoo Messenger—on iOS, Android, on the web and in Yahoo Mail on the desktop.
The app offers a fresh new messaging experience rebuilt from the ground up, integrates the best of the Flickr, Tumblr and Xobni, does photo sharing and animated GIFs and is focused on group messaging with features such as sharing, unsending and liking.
Flickr today updated its free iPhone and iPad application in the App Store with full support for iOS 9's Spotlight Search, Universal links and 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus smartphones.
It's of particular interest that the app goes beyond 3D Touch Home screen shortcuts and Peek and Pop gestures with something they're calling 3D Touch Extended.
Yahoo today launched a thoroughly redesigned Mail app for the iPhone and iPad which brings out a number of interesting feature additions and enhancements.
The new, much-improved Yahoo Mail 4.0 features password-free sign-in, way smarter search, contacts management, rich compose, the ability to use multiple mailboxes from services such as Outlook.com, Hotmail and AOL Mail, to name just a few.
You'll never get caught in the rain or snow again no matter where you live, provided you use Yahoo's gorgeously designed mobile Weather app which in its most recent update has added near-term weather alerts.
In addition, Yahoo Weather for iPhone and iPad, now bumped to version 1.8, is even more accurate than before and zooms in smartly on microclimates.
As vaguely hinted yesterday, Yahoo held a press conference in New York City this morning to announce its brand new mobile product: a messaging app called LiveText.
The app recently soft-launched in HongKong, Taiwan and Ireland and is scheduled to roll out in more markets tomorrow, including the United States and the United Kingdom. Don't worry, we'll keep you updated as soon as it hits the US App Store.
LiveText promises to transform simple conversations into rich, fun and memorable experiences with text and live video, but without sound. It's very Snapchat-esque and you might be willing to give it a try.
According to Re/code journalist and technology columnist Kara Swisher, the Internet's pioneering company, Yahoo, will announce a brand new mobile messaging app at a forthcoming media event.
The press conference is apparently scheduled for later this week, but the company has yet to formally announce it.
“It's likely a messaging app,“ Swisher wrote on Twitter this morning. Yahoo's press event should be held in New York City and serve as a launchpad for new consumer products focused on mobile.
If you set up a Yahoo account on your Mac, iPhone, iPod touch or iPad in order to sync data with Yahoo Contacts and access Yahoo Mail through Apple's stock Mail app, you should read this.
According to the Internet firm, Mail and Contacts syncing on older Mac and iOS devices will no longer be supported after June 15. In addition, a number of Yahoo properties will close in the coming weeks, including Yahoo Maps.
Twitter, the popular micro-blogging platform, said on Tuesday that it will be pursuing ads outside of Twitter for the first time, with plans to sell Promoted Tweets on the popular news reader app Flipboard as well as on the Yahoo Japan website.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the company will permit advertisers who are already buying ads on the service to start running Promoted Tweet ad units on other people’s apps and sites that display tweets, with undisclosed revenue sharing between Twitter and partner websites/apps.
Ever since Marissa Mayer took the CEO job in the summer of 2012, mobile software and digital magazines have been a big part of her turnaround efforts at Yahoo.
Having released new apps like News Digest and revamped key ones such as Mail, Search and Weather, the pioneering Internet company's focus now sharpens on its namesake mobile app.
Now available in the App Store, the new Yahoo 6.0 sports a redesigned appearance with fresh new features that make it more in line with Yahoo's new digital strategy while resembling Flipboard in certain functional aspects.
Embattled CEO Marisa Mayer just bought herself some more air cover by spinning off Yahoo's 15 percent stake in Alibaba into a new public company. But Mayer is still under pressure to boost Yahoo's core biz which has been eroding steadily. Now, MacRumors passes along a transcript of Yahoo's conference call when Mayer praised Apple's Safari browser as the premier search platform.
She called fans of the Apple web browser “among the most lucrative users in the world” and expressed interest in Yahoo becoming the default search engine in Safari.
