Yahoo Killing Certain Smartphone Services To Make Way For New

Yahoo is cleaning house and that means you can say goodbye to some of the apps you might be accustomed to using by the provider. These service include, but aren’t limited to, Yahoo Deals, Yahoo SMS Alerts, and the Yahoo Mail and Messenger apps used on feature phones.

It can be debated about the reasoning behind this move, but Executive Vice President Jay Rossiter says that it’s all about getting rid of the old to make room for the new.

“We want to bring you experiences that inspire and entertain you every day,” Rossiter wrote. “That means taking a hard look at all of our products to make sure they are still central to your daily habits. As part of that ongoing effort, today we are shutting down a few more products.”

Most of these shut downs will take place before the end of the month.
