Everything isn’t coming up roses in the world of messaging services these days. Moped has been acquired by 6Wunderkinder, developer of the Wunderlist task management app.
The company is planning to completely shut down Moped on Tuesday, Dec. 31. Displaced users of the messaging service can claim a free month of Wunderlist Pro.
Here’s how 6Wunderkinder described the acquisition when contacted by The Next Web:
The acquisition allows us to further cement Wunderlist as the one place to host all communication around your to-dos, whether it be real time conversations, files, notes or assigned tasks.
Moped offered apps for iOS devices along with the Mac and Android. The free service synced all messages in the cloud, and allowed users to drag-and-drop files from their desktop to upload and send to anyone. Interestingly, users could also send email directly from Moped.
A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Wunderlist can be downloaded now for free in the App Store. An in-app purchase of $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year will unlock the Pro feature that includes a number of business collaboration tools.
The Pro subscription will carry over to the other supported platforms including Mac, Android, Windows, Chrome OS, and the Web.
