    What is OtherInbox, and what does it do?
    OtherInbox, Inc. is an Austin-based company that builds technology to automatically organize email messages from online shopping and social networking sites, letting users focus on and identify messages from real people first.

    What is the Organizer application, and how does it work?
    The OtherInbox Organizer application scans an individual's Yahoo! Mail account for automatic, computer-generated messages that tend to pile up, such as newsletters, coupons, Facebook notifications, Twitter updates, and many more. These are non-urgent messages that a user may want to see eventually. A daily digest will be delivered into the user's inbox every morning

  • People of Barcelona (and the rest of Spain or, heck, even Southern Europe), get your calendars out and mark Wednesday, the 17th of June with a small "YDN" note.

    For the first time, the Yahoo Developer Network (well Anil - from Open Hack fame and me) will come to Spain to talk to you about some of the things developers can use for free to make their lives easier and impress their bosses and colleagues.

    We've done several Developer evenings like this before in locations like San Francisco, New York, Singapore, London, and Paris. Now we thought it is time to come to Spain and see what developers expect from us there (experiencing the English "Summer" helps, too).

    The talks will be in English but there are local Yahoos around to help with translation and explanations. We start at seven in the evening in the Yahoo offices at Avinguda Diagonal, 197 9th floor, Barcelona, Catalonia 08018 with half an hour setup. Then there'll be an introduction and some hands-on examples on how to use APIs

  • Today, we launched a collection of new apps for My Yahoo! and the new Yahoo! Mail built by third-party developers on Yahoo!'s open platforms. These apps reflect a wide range of user interests and were created to help people stay productive and get more done (while having fun) within two of Yahoo!'s most popular destinations.

    Fourteen of these apps can be found in My Yahoo!, the Web's leading personalized homepage. Designed to help people manage and enjoy different aspects of their busy lives, the apps were built on the Yahoo! Application Platform (YAP). The Yahoo! Application Platform allows third-party developers to write applications that display on Yahoo! products. Applications consist of a small view, which users can add directly to their My Yahoo! pages. From the small view, a user can click to see a canvas view, which presents a larger, complete view of the application.

    The canvas view supports the 0.8 version of the OpenSocial JavaScript APIs and uses Caja for JavaScript

    yap_mintlogo.jpgOne million users already have found Mint.com to be a better way for money management and now they can get Mint right on their personalized My Yahoo! page with Mint?s new Yahoo! app.

    After getting the call from Yahoo!, the Mint team was able to develop the app in just six weeks, taking full advantage of the Yahoo! Application Platform (YAP) in order to bring the most important functionality of the Mint.com service to Yahoo! users.

    Since the My Yahoo! homepage is the place where users go to catch up on the most important things in their lives, the Mint team was careful not to overwhelm them with all of the detailed information they can get on Mint.com. Instead, the Mint.com app provides an overview
