Yahoo! Go for BlackBerry not “go”ing any further…

May 18, 2009 | By | 7 Comments


Earlier this year the Yahoo! Go application for BlackBerry was introduced and it seems to have failed. Yahoo has announced that they have stopped offering the application for BlackBerry and started to shift efforts towards their new mobile site and iPhone app development (ouch!). Check out the email Ronen received below from them. So will you miss the Yahoo! Go Application?

Yahoo! has decided to cease development of the Yahoo! Mobile smartphone app effective Wednesday, May 20th. So you will not be provided access to the beta program for this product.

For the time being, we will be focusing our efforts on the newly-launched Yahoo! Mobile experience for browsers (available at and for the iPhone (available via the Apple App Store).

We really want to thank you for your interest in being a beta tester. The feedback we receive during these programs is extremely helpful in improving the customer experience across all of Yahoo!’s mobile products. In the meantime, stay tuned for more exciting new mobile product releases from Yahoo!. There’s a lot coming and we want to hear your feedback!

Many thanks,

The Yahoo! Mobile team

    I like and use a lot of Yahoo stuff but their Go app was a pig on a BlackBerry.
    Too bad because it could have been great if not mismanaged like so many things Yahoo touches.

    DAMMIT! What are those Yahoos thinking??

    Yahoo GO! worked extremely well with a work-issued Blackberry 8700g that I had. Addresses & Calendar synched flawlessly with Outlook via the Blackberry 8700g.

    Now that I have a new work-issued Blackberry (Curve 8900), I’d like similar sync capabilities. Looks like none will be forthcoming, though. :-(
