1.0 out of 5 stars You Can't Log Out! December 5, 2013
Verified Purchase
I love Yahoo Mail and have used it every day for at least 15 years. So I thought an app for my Kindle Fire would be a great way to check my mail while I'm out. Sure you can access your e-mail account through this app, and see if anyone's sent you an e-mail. You can compose a new one, reply (although typing on the Kindle Fire isn't the best experience) but the app developers have forgotten the most important thing you need with an e-mail account. The ability to log out so your bank statements, share trade confirmations, passwords for other websites, personal correspondence, payslips and everything you get e-mailed isn't there for any thief who steals your Kindle Fire to just press the Yahoo Mail app icon and have your inbox appear on the screen without having to enter your username or password. Ridiculously that's exactly what they can do with this app. Even if you have turned off your Kindle, when you turn it back on you can still get straight back in, and even if you don't even touch the app, your notifications in your Kindle show whoever has taken it your e-mails anyway. Even pressing the Kindle's back arrow on the menu doesn't log you out like occurs with most apps.

Kindle Fires are portable small devices, much more chance of being stolen from your bag, locker at your workplace, while your travelling or wherever you take it than someone breaking into your house and stealing your PC, yet users are even less protected.

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.

Well - this is a pretty worthless thing with the Yahoo Android App for Kindle Fire. Even the email App cant displa more than 10 emails. You cant even see the 11th email - ridiculuous. However I found a crude workaround - Login to directly from the browser (Yes - do NOT use the App for Yahoo, though it encourages you to use that crappy App) and the you will be able to see all ( however many you have)... Phew !! You have change page but atleast you can see more than 10... Whoever did the App for Kindle Fire should fix this ASAP.

Apart from this I have found Kindle Fire pretty neat - specially te MicroUSB interface( u need to buy a cable) is terrific. I uploaded 100 mpe music files instantly...

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect.... July 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
I've tried using other email apps on my Kindle Fire HD 8.9" for my Yahoo! account, but they lack in functionality in comparison to the "Real McCoy." One crucial function that trumps all other apps is its send/receive speed. When you're chatting with someone by email, time is of the essence. I have sound and display notifications set up for my Yahoo account, and when tested side by side with about five other email apps, Yahoo! always notifies me immediately of the email. Also, the ability to just swipe from the left and access the other folders (such as Sent) that are synced with my Yahoo! account is another time-saving feature. The only reason I'm not giving it a full five stars is because of the default small size print. I have not found a way within the app's settings to permanently set the print to a larger size. You can change the size every time you write an email, but I find that annoying. Also, I would like the ability to change the background to black with white text (a lot easier on the eyes). Lastly, when I hit the Return key after I've created my subject line (because the space is so small before the signature line) the app closes out to the Kindle Fire's homescreen. Otherwise, this app is the best I've found for ease of use with my Yahoo! account.

How to?
I don't have a tablet, but if my Kindle is about the same, when you click on Yahoo and the app opens, there is a box in the upper right. That is a "pen", not a checkmark. To write an email, click on that.

To receive email, go into the app and click on the menu bar at the bottom. Click... Read More

Adding Contacts
Hi Ethan,
It's me (from the other post about Ymail). After reading your question about adding contacts I decided to give it a try. Sorry, I'm stumped as well. My contacts have transferred from my Yahoo account, but I couldn't tell you how. Maybe something during setting it up on the tablet? ... Read More
