Yahoo! Discontinues Finance and News Apps

By Africa S. Hands

From the Yahoo! Search blog:

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. In that spirit, we’re decommissioning several of our current mobile apps. We will be sending a notification later today that the following apps will no longer be supported:

•               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)
