Last month, Glassboard received a minor update that the team behind the app noted as “our last release before we shift our focus to iOS 8 and the new iPhone 6.” As it turned out, though, it was going to be the last release ever.
That’s because Glassboard is set to shut down on Nov. 1, 2014.
Created by Sepia Labs, Glassboard was acquired in December last year by Second Gear, the developer behind the writing app Elements and the photo management app Photos+. Then, last July, new membership plans were introduced to Glassboard. But these proved insufficient to turn the app into a sustainable business.
And so, the Glassboard team has decided to stop offering the service altogether and make the following changes ahead of the shutdown:
Starting next week, we will be converting everyone’s account to a premium account for the remaining few weeks so that you can export your boards and keep an archive should you desire. We will also be disabling new user signups, and removing the apps from both the Android and iOS App Store.
Indeed, Glassboard is no longer available on the App Store.
As mentioned, Glassboard is scheduled to shut down on Nov. 1.
