Why no Yahoo Y!Go on the Tour??

I love Verizon and could not wait to get my hands on the Tour.

I was considering getting the Storm but decided against it when I found out that one of my favorite BB apps - the Yahoo Mobile Y!Go was not available for it.

However ... NOW I have found out that Y!Go does not work for the Tour either. Apparently, the Tour and Storm share a similar operating system. I used to have a Pearl and it worked great with Y!Go.

Are there any plans to develop the Y!Go app for use with the Tour?

Primarily, I really want to use it to view my Flicrk pics from my Tour.

Steve, have you tried to actually download and install YGo to your Tour... does it say not available or what?

It goes to the Yahoo Mobile site.

When you go to the Yahoo site on the PC, it does not list the Tour as a supported device.

I assumed that since the Bold supported it, so did the Tour.

As I said. it goes right to the Yahoo Mobile site and will not download at all.

Ok ok , yes you said that, but you didn't state specifically which site you were going to on your browser, and I thought i might be kind enough to provide the direct link.

 

You need to speak with Yahoo... they develop the application and would know any ETA for the upgraded app.

 

Good luck.
