Following Nokia’s purchase by Microsoft, the phone company have begun to shutdown its operating systems, Symbian & MeeGo.
As the new year dawned, Nokia officially shut off Symbian developers’ ability to make changes to existing MeeGo or Symbian apps, or publish new ones, on the Nokia Store.
The Symbian Signed team, which supports developers signing update files for apps that have been downloaded from the store, today said a brief goodbye to developers that have stuck with the abandoned platform.
“That was it; we are officially closed. Thank you all for the past years!” the Symbian Signed team wrote on Twitter yesterday.
Weeks after announcing the planned sale of its devices and services business to Microsoft, Nokia gave its community of Symbian developers just three months to make final changes to any Symbian apps distributed through the Nokia Store.
