FitFu is shutting down
After a lot of discussion we’ve decided to close FitFu to focus our creative energies on a new venture.
Since launching in Winter 2010 your feedback has been outstanding; from ideas to improve the product to stories about how much of a difference FitFu has made to your lives. We know from our stats that many of you are still active and have achieved really impressive improvements. We’ve had our ups and downs – including some serious setbacks – but you’ve always kept us motivated and we’re grateful for that.
However, FitFu has not been the commercial success we wanted and it’s costing us too much to keep running. We’d love to pass it over to someone else, but unfortunately that is not possible so the only option is to close down.
What about the app?
On Tuesday 18 September we will remove FitFu from sale and no further updates will come; if you haven’t updated to FitFu 3 and want to, you should do so before that date. We’ll keep the social network running until Wednesday 31 October, after which we’ll shut that down too; we’ve made provisions so that the FitFu app itself will continue to work but there will be none of the friends features from that point. As FitFu will no longer be available on iTunes, if you delete it from your computer you will not be able to retrieve it again.
We’re grateful you chose our app, and we’re sorry to have let you down, but we hope you’ll keep up the good work and continue to stay active.
If you’d like to find out what HasFu Inc is doing next, do feel free to follow us on twitter: @JofArnold and @Benjie. We should also give props to Despark.com for the design and BrainBakery.com for the early iOS code and the social network – you guys rock.
