Yahoo Mail for iOS, which serves personalized “snapshots” as well as emails, has just become smarter with its latest update.
Now, Yahoo Mail has been enhanced to show more bits of personalized information in its Yahoo Today section.
For one thing, the app’s flight notifications now support Orbitz and CheapTickets. The updated app also lets you edit your favorite sports teams and edit your astrological sign in the daily horoscope section.
But no doubt the most notable new feature in the new version of Yahoo Mail is support for real-time updates for package shipments from online stores. As noted by Yahoo:
Tracking online shopping purchases can be tricky. To make your life a little bit easier, we’re adding package notifications to the latest release of the Yahoo Mail app for iOS in the U.S. Now, you can view and track shipped packages in the “Yahoo Today” section of the app from sites including Amazon, eBay, Zappos, Target, Best Buy, Macys.com and more. We’ll notify you when your package has shipped, when it’s scheduled to arrive, and what’s in your shipment.
The latest update to Yahoo Mail also lets you sort and select the types of content you’d like to see in Yahoo Today.
Of course, various bug fixes and performance improvements are also included in the update.
