Yahoo Search Launches iPhone Safari Version

Yahoo has built a mobile Safari version of Yahoo Search for the iPhone. Ryan Grove, a Yahoo developer, blogged about the experience of building out the application.

In short, the mobile Safari version gives you almost all of the features the normal Yahoo Search gives you, but with fewer ads and on a smaller screen. Included features are SearchMonkey, Search Assist, shortcuts, and much more. Do note that Yahoo has not built out an iPhone App; this is just a mobile Safari enabled version of Yahoo Search. Here are some screen captures of Yahoo Search on my iPhone:

Search results include a single ad, news results, and web results with quick links: Yahoo Search on iPhone

Additional search selections can be found at the bottom, and you can click five pages ahead: Yahoo Search on iPhone

Yes, Google does have many mobile Safari formatted products already.
