ShapeWriter’s sent a notice to all of their customers stating that the app will be pulled off of the Android Market on June 20th (that’s today). While the day has yet to fully conclude in most parts of the world, ShapeWriter appears to still be in the market at the time of this posting.
User Notice: We plan to take ShapeWriter off the Android Market on June 20, 2010 for an indefinite period of time, If you have purchased or downloaded ShapeWriter Keyboard on your Android device, please update it to the latest Version 3.0.9 which will not expire as the previous versions do. We thank you for your interest and support.
They have not given a specific reason at this time, but signs are pointing to the company’s recent fortune of being acquired by Nuance – the folks behind the brilliant Natural Speaking software. We’ve contacted ShapeWriter for comment, but don’t be surprised if all we get out of it is a regurgitated statement.
