I have been using Yahoo Go 3 on my Nokia smartphone, and  was pretty impressed with it, however, developments of the better Yahoo mobile application has meant that it will be end of road for Yahoo Go.

Have you been using Yahoo Go? What were your thoughts about it?

  • I personally use yahoo go 2 a lot on my windows mobile…i loved flickr on it, also its ability to sync my contacts on yahoo and mobile….and other nifty features…..but since thats going outside the windows as well….gmail, u are inching closer to handling my life online !

  • I use Yahoo Go 3 on my Symbian-based Nokia E71 and have loved it for its lightweight interface into Yahoo email – and I will be sad to see it go. The new mobile interface is horrid by comparison, trying to do too much with too little and consuming far too much bandwidth for what it does. Instead of 15-20 seconds and 5 button presses with one hand to check to see if I have new mail, it takes over 2 minutes, both hands, and upwards of 50 button presses. The convenience factor is gone. I’ll probably abandon it altogether and forward my email to google where I can use IMAP to pick up the mail.
