Yahoo Adds Apps & Widgets To Mail, My Yahoo & More

If you’ve ever wanted to send money via Paypal without leaving your email In box, or if you wanted to publish a blog post without leaving your My Yahoo page, today’s announcement from Yahoo is sure to put a smile on your face. Yahoo is adding a number of third-party apps and widgets to several of its properties, including the popular Yahoo Mail and My Yahoo services.

For Yahoo Mail users in the U.S., new apps include PayPal for sending and receiving money, Picnik for photo editing from your In box, MyPhotos for photo organization and sharing, and ZumoDrive, a file sharing service. These mail apps are only available for a limited number of users of the new Yahoo mail. You can get the new apps here.

New apps available to My Yahoo users include WordPress, Mint.com for financial management, and What’s Cookin for recipes and meal ideas. These are available in the My Yahoo content gallery.

Yahoo has also announced new widgets for its Yahoo Connected TV service and for Zimbra, its email and collaboration tool.
