Yahoo Introducing Apps For Mobile Devices

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — Yahoo is taking the next step in its effort to make some of its most popular services more appealing and accessible to the growing audience connecting to the Internet on smartphones and tablets.

The mobile push being orchestrated by CEO Marissa Mayer has hatched Yahoo’s first email application for Apple Inc.’s iPad and other tablet computers running on Google Inc.’s Android software.

Yahoo also has created a new weather app for Apple’s iPhone that will provide forecasts on top of slideshows feature pictures of landmarks in the cities chosen by a user.

The free apps were being released Thursday morning.

Like many other Internet companies, Yahoo Inc. is pouring more engineering talent and money into developing mobile applications as people spend more time on consuming content on smartphones and tablets.
