Yahoo today rolled out an update to its Yahoo Mail iPad app, adding a raft of extra content, including news, weather, finance, sports and videos, to the email client. The iPad version follows similar upgrades to Yahoo’s Android and iPhone mail apps.

While other Web companies have focused on unbundling their mobile offerings in favor of a suite of slimmer, single-use apps, Yahoo has taken the opposite approach by packing more into its mail app.
