iPhone to Lose Support From TweetDeck

TweetDeck

The app for mobile devices known as TweetDeck, a sort of side app branch from Twitter, will have support brought to cessation for mobile devices.

According to Apple Insider, the real-time tracking tool for digital conversations will be brought to the end of its life soon. TweetDeck AIR will also die for mobile devices. Why? Read it and weep below.

The official TweekDeck announcement states…

To continue to offer a great product that addresses your unique needs, we’re going to focus our development efforts on our modern, web-based versions of TweetDeck. To that end, we are discontinuing support for our older apps: TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone. They will be removed from their respective app stores in early May and will stop functioning shortly thereafter. We’ll also discontinue support for our Facebook integration.

Harsh, but not unreasonable.

The focus on web browsing makes sense and the discontinuation of mobile services obviously lends itself to stiff competition or perhaps, a lack of returns?

The desktop versions of TweetDeck will continue to be made available in the meantime.
