After launching Google Schemer almost 2 years ago, it appears Google is finally ready to set the “to-do” service out to pasture. Shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, really. The Android app hasn’t been updated since October of 2012. With no progress being made on the app, we even suggested in an August article that Google could even integrate the service into Google Now, breathing new life into Schemer.


Unfortunately, as evidenced by an internal screenshot obtained by Google Operating System, Schemer will be shut down, although it appears a specific closing date hasn’t been decided just yet. For those that had a good number of Schemes on their bucket-list, as usual Google will allow users to download their data.

We think Schemer had some potential, but with so little exposure, its closure was inevitable. Still, the fact that Google closes services based solely on their popularity is a bit disheartening. Makes you wonder which Google service is next on the chopping block?
