Yahoo recently launched a brand new mobile app that allows its users to get rid of passwords altogether. It’s a pretty awesome concept, and it’s the first time that the app supports other email clients (although it does not support both Gmail and Outlook).

A really cool feature of the app is that it allows you to integrate with social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to pull in contact information. After integrating your Yahoo account with these social networks, the pictures on them are synced with your email contacts. Example below :)

The app is available for both iOS and Android, and it’s very intuitive. If you long press, you can select multiple emails, and if you swipe left it deletes the email, whereas swiping right marks it as read. Furthermore, you can add photos into the email rather than as an attachment. Users also have the luxury of checking out Yahoo News from within the app.

Another really awesome feature is the ability to go “password free” with your email. They call it “Account Key.” In other words, you can sign-in to your account by clicking a button to get a push notification on your phone with a link that you can click access/open your account.

It has been a great year for Yahoo in terms of email improvements. You can read about their one-step email verification here and you can read about other improvements to their platform here.
