On Tuesday, Yahoo! updated its Yahoo! Mail application for Apple's iOS platform with numerous improvements for the iPad. The latest version of the application that can now be downloaded from the iOS App Store is version 3.1.0.

Of the improvements the application has received today, some of the more notable ones include:

  • The ability to see information on news, stocks, weather, sports, Flickr photos, and more
  • Create and configure e-mail filtering for your inbox(es)
  • Better performance and stability through the implementation of bug fixes

Yahoo! gave the iPhone and iPod touch version of their Yahoo! Mail application most of these features back in April, but this new update for the application finally brings the iPad version of the Yahoo! Mail application up to the same speed as the iPhone and iPod touch version with a better feature set.

Existing users of the Yahoo! Mail application for iOS will find this update under the Updates tab in the App Store application. Alternatively, you can download the latest version of Yahoo! Mail for iOS for free from this App Store link.
