Yahoo Mail for Android

The Good Yahoo Mail performs smoothly and comes with most of your basic e-mailing needs. It offers formatting tools that aren't available in other mobile mail clients and themes let you customize your visual experience.

The Bad Doesn't let you perform any actions (delete, star, or mark as unread, for instance) from the search results screen. You can't use your own photos for themes.

The Bottom Line Yahoo Mail is a reliable performer that makes it a snap to both read and fire off e-mails from your Yahoo account.

Simple and reliable e-mail client for Android

Editors' note: This review was updated October 15, 2013, to cover the features added in the latest version.

With Yahoo Mail for Android, you can quickly access your Yahoo e-mail account (or multiple accounts) right from your mobile device. Altogether, the app is clean, user-friendly, and it includes some bonuses that make it feel very much like its desktop counterpart.

The first thing you'll notice about Yahoo Mail for Android is how much it looks and feels like its browser-based big brother. Formerly dressed in all purple, the mobile app now lets you pick a theme to serve as backdrop to your messages. As of now, there are over 30 themes to choose from, but it would be nice to be able to use a custom picture to adorn your inbox.
