Over the weekend, YouMail posted on the company blog two things regarding their BlackBerry application. First, the app has just been updated and a few changes made. These changes include a totally redesigned UI, no more ads in the free version, and caller “ditching” ability. The app update is great news, but what follows in the post is a huge blow for BlackBerry users.
YouMail has announced they are suspending further work on their BlackBerry application. They cited the huge decline in BlackBerry users who are moving to iOS or Android, and in most cases, sticking with YouMail through the transfer. Due to this huge decline is use, they have decided to indefinitely suspend work on the BlackBerry app. They aren’t throwing in the towel forever, though. They state that if BlackBerry does make a triumphant resurgence with BlackBerry 10 that they will be back in the saddle on the platform.
The above graph was provided by YouMail in the blog post. It shows the huge decline in BlackBerry users between January 2011 and now. It seems to fit well with the overall sentiment towards the brand at the current time. Losing YouMail is definitely a huge loss for the platform. They have been on BlackBerry for many years and a majority of BlackBerry users use the service. If you want to keep YouMail, you can hit the link below for their final BlackBerry app release.
