However to take advantage of the home page live tiles feature, the app has an option to display notifications on the home screen for new emails. Additionally when typing in email addresses the app offers auto-completion for all emails that are there in the Yahoo Mail contact list. A continuous scrolling feature lets users to scan through email messages quickly. Yahoo has recently released new apps for iPhone, iPods and also launched a new revamped app for Android.
