    I got the update that Yahoo Mail 1.2.1 is available but it specifically says that Galaxy S phones aren't supported. Has anyone installed it to a rooted Capitivate? Experiences?

    I haven't yet installed it because I can't get side-loading enabled and I don't want to upgrade if I can't roll back to the prior version. That said, I hate the prior versions of Yahoo Mail because I find them extraordinarily slow. It routinely takes me >30 seconds for email body text to appear when I open a message.

    Thanks!

    I hate Yahoo apps. They run so slow and crash a lot for me. I used to use Yahoo Mail and I still use Fantasy Football. Now I stick with yahoo mail on the browser, but FF still crashes on me.

    Agreed. The FF app should be outlawed. And the Yahoo Mail app is 10x worse than just accessing thru the browser! I just set my homepage to my Yahoo mail account and check it that way.
