The company says users will get through their mail faster and more easily.

Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO) has launched a full-screen Yahoo! Mail App designed specifically for iPad and Android tablets. 

Yahoo! says it has optimized the app to help users get through their emails quickly. Perhaps the biggest change is that users can simply swipe to delete, star, or move their emails. 

Of course, there are features that mimic the online experience. For example, the Yahoo! Mail app lets users group emails by sender. 

This announcement comes after CEO Marissa Mayer announced a newer version of Yahoo! Mail back in December. At that time, the company also noted that it was helping customers get through emails faster by creating a "consistent look and feel across devices," regardless of whether they were on the the Web or using a Windows, Android, or iOS product.
