If your phone runs Android and you use Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Messenger, you’ll be pleased to know that there are a brand new set of apps from Yahoo that will let you use these directly from your phone. Here’s a run down of the feature

With the new Yahoo! Mail App for Android, consumers can:

  • Receive push notification of new email messages
  • Send emails to contacts from the Yahoo! Address Book as well as to contacts in the native phone address book
  • Search email messages by sender, recipient, subject and keywords
  • Upload photos as attachments directly from the phone’s camera or the photo gallery
  • View and download attachments
  • Insert emoticons and rich text formatting into emails
  • Effectively manage and organize their Yahoo! Mail messages, folders, and spam
  • Easily toggle between the Yahoo! Mail and Yahoo! Messenger apps

With the new Yahoo! Messenger App for Android, consumers can:

  • Easily message friends, check friends’ status updates and availability and update their personal status and availability
  • Send instant messages to friends via SMS text message1
  • Multitask and stay connected with the app working in the background; with push notifications, consumers can easily catch new messages and friend requests
  • Get full use of emoticons and rich text formatting
  • Send photos to friends directly from the phone’s camera or the photo gallery

I don’t use Yahoo myself, but I know a number of people who will be over the moon with this announcement. Check out the apps!
