Yahoo Mail App Pulled Down from Windows Store for Windows 8 Users

As Wind8Apps informs us, the official Yahoo! Maill app is no longer on the Windows Store, which means Windows 8, 8.1 and even Windows 10 users will no longer be able to download it.

The move is rather unexpected and no official explanations have been given whatsoever, but if does indeed turn out to be true, then this means a big publisher like Yahoo! doesn’t apparently trust anymore the Windows Store idea.

But be it as it may, deleting such an important app even from a nascent store of apps is not a good sign. The good news is that those who have already downloaded it can still use it.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for more news on this and will let you know if anything changes. Until then, you can make use of the default Mail app in Windows 8.

  1. Both of them are shooting each other. Either Yahoo has to support Exchange Active Sync, or MS has to support Card Dav or whatever Google and Yahoo are using for contact and calendar sync. Either way, Yahoo and Google and Microsoft unable to sync contacts and calendar along with email, is bad for users of those services.
