Yahoo Mail adds new mobile features

Yahoo has added new features to Yahoo Mail for iOS and Android users.

On iOS, users can find a new look for blue links, easier sharing and artist-made stationery, courtesy of Paperless Post. On Android, Yahoo has included a directory of all of the people interacted with, contact syncing and an open beta.

New for iOS are:
