Goodbye

January 13, 2014

It is with a heavy heart that I finally lay Menu and Hours to rest. I removed the app from the AppStore nearly six months ago but kept paying for the backend service that houses all of the app's information and delivers it to the app each time someone uses it. But now it's time to discontinue the backend service which means Menu and Hours will soon stop working.

Why? The company that has hosted Menu and Hours data since day 1 is discontinuing the product that Menu and Hours was built to work with. The company built a new product and will no longer support the product that Menu and Hours works with. They aren't pulling the plug on the existing product for a while longer but it's time to rip the band-aid off instead of whimpering along.

Building Menu and Hours was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life. Through it all I tried my best to make it a product that could grow and live into the future. I ask you to forgive me for not being able to make that happen.

Sincerely,
Michelle Jones
Menu and Hours Creator
