Announcement- Writer's Outlet To Close December 31st Read Count : 255

Category : Articles

Sub Category : Miscellaneous
Hello Writer's Outlet community. Last December I extended the app and web site and all of the associated things that go with it through December 31st 2020 despite the down year we had in 2019. I knew this was a make or break year for this app and that we needed to make some major progress in terms of content, interaction, page views, clicks and impressions. 

Due to the continued lack of support and interest in this app, I will not be extending it after this year. I am looking to sell the app but it is most likely just going to be shuttered effective Jan 1 2021. 

Anything you have on this app needs to be backed up by December 31st. I will be canceling the hosting which will restrict access to the app on both platforms and the web site. I repeat back up your files. It is not my responsibility if you forget or choose to ignore this. It will be posted as the number 1 writing until the app closes so no excuses if you don't read this.

We had a good 3 plus year run but ultimately couldn't break through. We can't compete with the larger apps and people seem content with only using the same 3-4 apps.

Goodbye Writer's Outlet community.

    I, more than anybody, know how much hard work and effort you have put into trying to make Writer's outlet a viable app. I also know you have put a lot of thought into this and have also, at times, struggled with this decision. I'm sorry that this has not worked out and been as successful as you had hoped for. You should be proud of what you created. I am

    Thank you for all your hard work. I loved this app, I really did. I hope my inconsistency didn't make it seem like I lacked interest. I'm going to miss this place.

    Hey, I just wanted to share my honest opinion. I downloaded the app just today and I first tested creating a book or a story but I didn't really understand it well at first so I was instantly about to delete it. But I then looked at other people's writings and books and I was actually impressed by the layout and format. It was easy to scroll and the layout kind of gives me a nostalgic feel of the internet before. I'm sad to know that the app couldn't reach out to everyone and that it will be gone in a year's time but I will try to learn more and more within that year from the very creative writers on this app. Thank you to the creator of this app for keeping the app running and always keep your head up cause i'm sure there are a lot of people that really appreciate it. P.S The notifications are kind of annoying xd

    Thanks for the (literal) Outlet, which helped with feedback reception before publishing under my real name. And thanks for the Facebook promotion. I was not aware of this happening, so If there’s anything that can be done plz let us know.
