Yahoo has introduced a new version of its Mail app for iOS with a handful of features migrated from its desktop interface, including support for inline URL previews.

The new Link Preview feature works by converting a web address typed into a message into a visual snapshot of the linked content, so recipients can see what's on the other side of the link before choosing to click it. The 'preview card' can be created inline with the message text or users can opt to append it at the bottom of the message.

In addition, the update to Yahoo Mail brings stationery themes to mobile users, enabling one-click email personalization for custom greetings or special occasions like birthdays. The app also gets system share support with a Yahoo Mail Share Sheet button for sending files and media from other apps straight to a new message compose window.

The update comes less than a month since Yahoo added the ability to include files from Google Drive and use Tumblr GIFs in the client app, as the company attempts to catch up with feature-rich mail services such as Gmail.

Yahoo Mail is a free download from the App Store for iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link]

Sure, why not?

I have an old Yahoo account which was my first ever email address and I still use it occasionally. I get some spam bit it yahoos filters are getting better and better. I created a couple other accounts, for cases when I have to put in an email address for various reasons or when I have to send or receive big files or pictures because I need to save on my 5 Gig iCould account, and those new Yahoo accounts never get any spam.
