Mobile app developers go Yahoo!

8 Jan

In an apparent bid to woo application developers (a la Android?), Yahoo! has announced a mobile developer platform that would enable developers to create applications that can be viewed on a wide range of cellphones. According to a release issued by the company at the ongoing CES 2008, Yahoo! will provide developers with tools to write the code, which will transform their applications into mobile widgets. These widgets will then be made available via Yahoo! Go, the brand’s application for cellphones.

Yahoo! also upgraded Yahoo! Go to version 3.0 and is also developing its new homepage that has been designed keeping the mobile Internet browsing in mind. We tried downloading Yahoo! Go 3.0 on a Nokia E61i, which unfortunately wasn’t supported at the moment. It seems that the devices that are supported are limited and Yahoo! is still working overtime to get things in place. All we hope is this time Yahoo! really delivers on its promise.
