I'm not exactly sure how many folks out there use apps from Yahoo but if you're among those that do, you'll want to check the list below. Reason being - Yahoo is laying some of their mobile apps to rest to focus on a whole new set of apps that more so meet users needs. So what apps got the cut?

  • Yahoo! Meme (iPad and iPhone)
  • Yahoo! Mim (iPad)
  • Yahoo! Answers (Android)
  • Yahoo! AppSpot (Android and iPhone)
  • Yahoo! Deals (iPhone)
  • Yahoo! Finance (BlackBerry)
  • Yahoo! Movies (Android)
  • Yahoo! News (Android)
  • Yahoo! Shopping (iPhone)
  • Yahoo! Sketch-a-Search (iPad and iPhone)

That quite a few apps to kill off but from looking at the list, it's looks as though those apps are smaller on the chain and may have a minimal amount of users.

Yahoo cleaning house, lays some of their mobile apps to rest


Hate their mail app, and even though their mobile site sucks too I use that ad you can not stop their e-mail app from running in the background...o

Improve your fantasy basketball app to anything remotely resembling your football app Yahoo, then maybe i'll use it.
Most of yahoo apps sucks.

I tend to disagree. I have the Yahoo mail app because I dislike Gmail and especially hate the Gmail app. It's all preference though. I just happen to like Yahoo's mobile mail layout better.

Anyway, Outlook is the worst. It's a cumbersome pain in the dick to use.

In further news, one person is reported to have liked the movie Gigli and despised Schindler's List. Back to you.

I didn't know that Yahoo had apps in the Mobile Platforms ... besides the Yahoo Mail App !

You learn something new everyday

Wow. I'm obviously in the minority. I like the yahoo mail app. I guess there is a small part of me that likes to think I am holding out against total google domination.

The only reason I currently ever use the mail app is to mark emails as spam. Overall, I like the mail app, but the zooming and scrolling are so clumsy, I stick with the stock mail app. If they could ever smooth those I out, I will be dedicated user.
