Checking email is a daily habit for many people. From Gmail, Hotmail to Yahoo! Mail, users have vast options of what mail client to use.

Yahoo! has redesigned their mail client, Yahoo! Mail to feature simplicity with an emphasis on speed. Since the last significant redesign was in Oct. 2010, this revamped app has been a long time in coming. Even though Yahoo! has struggled in the past with their mail client, it can still be said that it is a popular one and a default for many daily email users. The new app was designed with a consistent feel across all platforms including Windows 8, iOS, Android, and the Web.

The central focus of the mail client is now on the actual messages themselves. Menus are hidden but easily accessible and the user interface is simple and comfortable at first use. Current Yahoo! Mail users will find that the sleek design makes checking email more enjoyable than before.

The new inbox allows the user to skim through emails and messages easily and faster than ever, which makes navigating through bulk messages a breeze. Once inside the inbox, you'll just need to swipe your finger to have access to features that are most commonly used by heavy email users. From moving, deleting, and marking to starring an important email, this new design has the simplicity and feel with an avid email user in mind.

"You've told us loud and clear that you want fewer distractions when it comes to email. You want to quickly login, communicate, and get on with your day. And we've listened," Yahoo! posted on their blog.

With a new redesign coming to the Web version in the next few days, Yahoo! could bring a new contender to the ever competitive mail client world. The apps are now available in the App Store and Google Play to download.

Former Google executive, Marissa Mayer, who joined Yahoo! as the CEO in July could be rolling out a whole set of new designs for the struggling site, possibly even a homepage redesign. And the new Yahoo! email client could be its first big step.
