Yahoo Mail, which remains one of the most popular email services on the web with over 227 million monthly active users, is getting a fresh coat of paint on mobile this week. In the coming months, the Yahoo Mail app for Android and iOS will begin automatically grouping messages into categories like deals, travel, and attachments and pulling important flight info to the top of inboxes.
Perhaps the highlight is an auto-categorization feature called Views. Much like Gmail’s automatic labeling and bundling system, Views susses out the content of incoming mail and funnels it to the appropriate tab. In addition to deals and travel, there are subviews, including the location view (currently for iOS only) that launches a built-in map showing sales and coupon offers
