Yahoo has de-listed about ten of its apps from the stores like Android Market and iTunes. The company states that these applications are not working well and therefore they are axed from the market.
The list of decommissioned apps includes Sketch a Search for iPhone and iPad, Shopping for iPhone, News for Android, Movies for Android, Finance for BlackBerry, Deals for iPhones, AppSpot for Android and iPhone, Answers for Android, Mim for iPad and Yahoo Meme for iPhone and iPad.
The other apps of Yahoo like the Mail, Messenger, News, Sports, IntoNow and Livestand will be available and they are supported. The apps like Sketch a Search and AppSpot are added to the Yahoo's Search application itself.
The official statement says that the company is moving ahead with the mobile first mindset and in 2012 there will be more new mobile products from Yahoo and these will especially be more innovative and will add on to the strength of Yahoo.
The new products will be similar to the experience offered by the ones like IntoNow, Livestand and other mobile apps like Flickr, Sportacular, Messenger and Mail that are used by millions across the world.
