Yahoo Gives A Number of Mobile Apps the Ax
Yahoo today announced that it plans to decommission a number of mobile applications. Moving forward, it will no longer support Yahoo! Deals, Meme, Mim, Shopping, or Sketch-a-Search for the iPhone/iPad; Answers, AppSpot, Movies, or News for Android; and Finance for BlackBerry. Yahoo said this move will allow it to focus on innovating mobile products and services that its users and advertisers are more interested in using. Yahoo also noted that it has a "mobile first mindset" and that consumers can expect to see new mobile apps/services from it throughout 2012. "Our plan is to keep moving, to keep innovating, and to continuously measure and scrutinize what’s working and what isn't – so we can make room for great new products," said the company.
