Yahoo has just updated its Mail app for iOS devices to add two new features. First up, version 1.5.9 makes it easier to manage folders. Tapping the Edit button in the app allows users to create new folders, rename folders, or even delete folders that are no longer needed. The update also allows users to open email attachments in other installed apps. For example, a PDF file can be viewed in the Kindle app. To open an attachment, select the Share button and then choose “Open With.” Along with the usual slate of bug fixes, the new version also fixes a problem where the sidebar would show up blank for certain users. A universal app designed for both the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Yahoo Mail can be downloaded now in the App Store for free. Before today’s update, the last major revision was introduced in early July. That version allowed users to switch between multiple Yahoo Mail accounts and added support for business mail accounts. Version 1.5, which landed in the App Store in April, brought support for the larger screen of the iPad and iPad mini.
