News, weather, directions, yahoo mail basically. It's been availble for other devices for a while, finally available for the 8800.

Yahoo! Go. The Internet to go.

Wow I just checked a few days ago so this is nice. While some didn't like it for it's speed, I did.

Default Yahoo Go for 8800

The Yahoo GO web site shows that it is available for the Cingular 8800, but not the Verizon 8830. Before downloading, does anyone think it will or will not work? Isn't the 8830 just a variant of the same family? After all, GSM vs. CDMA shouldn't have any impact on running applications, should it?

OK I answered my own question by attempting to download it OTA. I got a message from Yahoo stating that it will be available for the 8830 shortly.

Did you notice the GPS support for the 8800? Haven't experimented with it much, but I didn't expect to see it.

Anyone want to post some impressions of this software? I am waiting for it for my 8830 and was hoping to hear good things about it!

not bad, i like that i can get my flickr stuff on there. it could be faster but not sure if thats the app or the EDGE connection. but overall i like it, kind of like a mini yahoo portal with connections to their services.

one interesting thing i noticed, when i exit the program it shows the amount of data used in this session, very cool although im on unlimited.

very similar to the gmail app that they have. one thing they both lack is a highlighting function, i wish they would include that as I like deleting a bunch at once and without the highlighting i have to go once at a time.
