I was asked this about 5 months ago and it was too soon for me to be able to answer the question as it related to this failed project, Pressgram. In many ways it probably still is and yet emotionally I feel that I can say, with confidence, that I have moved on.
Today marks the 2-year (official) anniversary of Pressgram and it is with a very heavy heart that I am announcing that active development on Pressgram is being discontinued. Consequently, I’ll be pulling the app from the Apple Store on 9/11 and shutting things down permanently by the end of this month (9/30).
I have been drafting this announcement post for a long time and had, at one point, a 3,000+ word epic narrative but it just didn’t really make sense as I stood back and looked at it as a whole.
Simply put, there are no words that can adequately describe how I feel about this news.
There are a lot of things happening in the world of Apple right now with the exciting new OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 releases just around the corner.
In addition, Pressgram’s little desktop brother is getting closer and closer to launch and I need to allocate my time and attention there (although a small SSL issue that I just noticed will be fixed shortly for those who have had trouble with Facebook…).
