YouMail recently updated its app to include the ability to easily ditch a telemarketer or stalker's call. It turns out that YouMail will be ditching BlackBerry.
The company announced that it will suspend further development for the platform.
"This was a tough decision, especially since the BlackBerry is what got us our first million registered users and put us on the map as a company," YouMail said in a blog post. "But over the past year we’ve seen our BlackBerry audience steadily shrink, with a steady exodus of those users moving to the iPhone and to Android."
Decline indeed. In fact, the post goes on to say that they see more Windows Phone 7 users than BlackBerry users -- "and we don’t even have a Windows Phone 7 app!" (Don't hold your breath there. When asked about a Windows Phone app, they point to the competition as being suitable.)
As you can imagine, this news wasn't well received by some users. "So after using you guys for 4 or 5 years now, I get booted because I actually LIKE BlackBerry? Foul guys, that's just foul..." wrote BB_Lover1026 in response to the post.
