Yahoo has making it presence known on CTIA 2009 with numbers of important products for it mobile division. Other than the introduction of Yahoo Messenger for iPhone, Yahoo also introduce its brand new mobile services called Yahoo Mobile.
Yahoo Mobile was designed with everyone in mind, as there are 3 version available for web, iPhone (not exist on previous version)and other smartphone. Yahoo Mobile was first announced to public last February.
As comparison, Yahoo’s previous mobile services, known as Yahoo One Search(which is now part of Yahoo Mobile) is accessible via m.yahoo.com .
Under the hood, there are 5 sections called Featured News, Yahoo News, My Interests, Connect and More Yahoo Service. The first 2 options are news from Yahoo News, which shows US and global news. It’s best if Yahoo could change this, to show the local news, which is more relevant to the user where this app installed.
On My Interest, this section allow you to choose what you like to do, and shown it here. You can add stuff that interest you most such as RSS feed of you favorite blog, bookmark, whether news, stock update and etc.
Over to Connect, which is the best part for me, it allow you to sign in and view your favorite email and social media updates. There are Yahoo Mail of course, Gmail, Delicious, MySpace, Yahoo Messenger and etc. More Yahoo services are available on the More section.
Overall, Yahoo Mobile is feature rich application which provide greater experience to the users. Yahoo Mobile can be downloaded directly from iPhone App Store. 1 thing to note is, if your iPhone run on OS 2.1, somehow Yahoo Mobile will crash intermittently.
