Several issues down a few more to go... Yahoo finally responded - after much delay - to customers and fixed the initial issue that limited users to viewing only one screen, and only 10 messages, at a time. The app now scrolls as it should. No more requirement to view email messages in landscape mode. There was then a persistent problem wrt loading on a Kindle Fire HD (we'd get a perpetual loop of the app interface asking for a login name & password, which never connected us to the Yahoo Mail service). Then the navigation capabilities on a Kindle Fire HD 7" failed and were not consistently visible (forcing users to open emails to view navigation tools or ending up in a loop of no access to mail folders if one got stuck in a folder with no emails to open). And, just to keep things interesting, in the phone rendition of the app notifications were/can be a disaster and do not always work.

The most recently updated interface design of the Yahoo Mail app was an improvement over the old interface aesthetically (it got rid of that gosh awful prior arrangement in which the ads took up over 1/3 of the app's 'real-estate' on a relatively small smart phone or 7" tablet display). The new design is elegant and clean. The folders run down the left vertical 1/3 of the display (tablet and smart phone - mine a Samsung Galaxy S III) with a viewing panel of messages showing in the right 2/3 of the screen. Very nice! Easy to scan. The button controls are now intuitive and boast symbols that are laid out such that they are easy to use and maneuver through.

[UPDATE - April 2013] Yahoo seems to have released an update (2.

Great app. in order to see all the messages in your inbox all you need to do is to browse the kindle in landscape position.

This new version is the worst thing they have done. I can't wait to change it when I move. I am only suffering with it for a short time. If it isn't broke - don't try to fix it. You didn't succeed.

Yahoo, why on earth did you nerf this App? I downloaded this in 2012 and had a few complaints but didn't mind being able to use it on the go. True, it would sometimes not delete an email that I asked it to delete, and there was the limited viewing (if you scrolled down it would take a minute to load older emails), and there was the inability to search full text if the email I wanted to find was more than a week old. But I could deal with it.

But then I downloaded the March 2014 update and the App is now totally worthless. The interface has changed completely so that Yahoo is a shell that includes a number of apps - news app, flickr app, etc. The email app asks me to set up my yahoo account - something so strange for an account that I have had for so long that I simply removed the app from my kindle, thinking that it was some form of spyware. I see that it isn't, but yahoo is trying to be google and what we instead get is a really bloated, slow-running, package of nonsense that I don't have reason to use anymore.

I've opened an account through a different ISP and will be allowing my yahoo mail, which I have had for more than a decade, to simply die.

This update really failed to deliver the kind of consistency we should expect from Amazon and Yahoo. For example there is no way to move errant messages from the spam folder whether it got there due to User error or Yahoo filter insufficiency. AND there is no way to roll back to the earlier version. Thanks for screwing up our app GUYS!

Had to uninstall because the newest update did not allow me to turn off notifications! I would even use a task killer to turn off the app and it would pop back up and interfere with other apps I was running.

I installed this on my Kindle Fire (next gen, not HD) and it worked perfectly. As I'm reading or watching on the Kindle, a small beep tells me new mail has arrived. It's easy to log in and scroll through the email. This is very handy if I don't want to take a laptop on a trip--I still have email access as long as I have wifi.
