Shutting Down 30th April

HTC has announced that they will be shutting down, and will be deleting all data stored on the system after April 30th. Users of can currently back up Contacts, Messages, Footprints and Call History.

The service was launched back in 2010 with the aim to rival Apple's iCloud to provide cloud back up for HTC customers. However, unlike the iCloud, has struggled, resulting in its closure.

A letter has been sent out to all HTC owners explaining the situation, and urges customers to back up somewhere else before April 30th.

"Dear customer, is undergoing a renovation to improve the services and value we deliver to customers like you. Until the new services are ready, features previously available on will be shutting down. If you have been using to sync your Contacts, Messages, Footprints or Call History, you can download your data through April 30, 2012. After April 30, your data will no longer be accessible and will be deleted."

What this renovation will entail is currently unclear, and the company is currently gathering momentum to reveal the new HTC One range. Without cloud back up.
