Readly for Windows and Windows phones won't work after February 27

Readly is a subscription service that provides access to over a thousand of magazines from around the world for a $10.99 monthly fee. Until now it has provided web access and apps for the main platforms: iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, and Windows (both PC and phone).

Unfortunately, the app for Windows and Windows phones will no longer work after February 27, according to an e-mail message sent by the company to its users. You can read the e-mail below:

We are contacting you today to let you know that we've decided to close the Windows version of the Readly app. Unfortunately the number of customers using the Windows version doesn't motivate the effort for maintaining the app so going forward we've decided to work harder on developing our iOS/Android/Kindle apps and our web service instead.

Fortunately you can still read your favourite magazines with the Readly apps for iOS, Android, or Kindle Fire devices which we will continue to develop and improve to give you the best user experience possible. If you don't have access to any of these devices our web service (https://go.readly.com/) is your best alternative.

The Readly Windows app will be maintained and fully operational until February 27th 2017. After this date, the app will not function any more and you should delete it from your Windows computer. First, log out of the app and then delete it. By doing this you will make Readly available on one more device (as you know, you can use Readly on up to five devices).

The shut down of the Readly app wasn't the only loss for the Windows Store this month. In the last two weeks, SmartThings retired its app and users were informed that both Minecraft: Pocket Edition and Runtastic won't receive any more updates on the platform.
