Oyster Turns Off the Lights Following One Final iOS App Update
On Friday the ebook subscription service Oyster released the final update to its app for iPad and iPhone, and used that update to quietly announce that it was shutting down.
The three-year-old startup was acquired by Google last September, and had promised to remain open into spring 2016 as the staff transitioned over to Google. Alas, that did not happen; instead Oyster started closing accounts in late December. Judging by the tweets I found, Oyster closed accounts as each account came up for renewal, and then followed that with a formal shut down of the service on Friday.
