Online giant Yahoo has killed a host of mobile applications.
The company said on Friday that it has discontinued Yahoo Meme for the iPhone and iPad, Yahoo News for Android, and Yahoo Finance for RIM’s BlackBerry operating system, among others. The company said that its decision was a response to the rapidly changing mobile market, and the fact that some of its applications just weren’t cutting it.
“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,” the company wrote in a blog post on Friday. “In that spirit, today we’re decommissioning several of our current mobile apps.”
Yahoo doesn’t plan to turn its back on mobile applications, though. The company said that this year, it will have a “mobile first” mindset, and plans to launch several new applications, “such as companion experiences for TV like IntoNow, new ways to experience personalized media like Livestand, and some of our most popular and useful mobile apps like Yahoo! Mail, Messenger, Sportacular, and Flickr.”
