    When I use Yahoo email through Safari on my Mac there are tabs for 'Inbox' and 'Contacts'. When I use Safari on iPad and pull up Yahoo email there isn't a tab, button or access for 'Contacts'. I want to be able to scroll through my contacts on iPad as I use the other fields to put in notes on people, etc. What am I missing? Should there be access for my Contacts on iPad or ???

    Yahoo redirects iPad's to the tablet version of the site, which does not have Contacts. You can bypass this using a third party browser like Atomic or iCab Mobile (by setting the browser ID to a none mobile browser), but the desktop site does not work very well on the iPad. There may be third party apps that work well with both Yahoo Mail and Contacts, but I have not found one.

    So, in the end the best way to get you Yahoo Contacts on the iPad is to add your Yahoo account in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars. If you don't want to use the Mail or Calendar syncing features, just turn them off

    As far as being able to work between mail and contacts to get info, all I can recommend is starting both apps, then using the four finger multitasking swipe to move back and forth between the apps (iPad 2, iOS 5 and up), or double tapping the Home Button.

    That would be nice. On the other hand Google isn't doing any better on that front.
