Less than two months after DocSyncer exited beta and launched a paid version, they have made the announcement that they will be shutting down.
According to their website, DocSyncer will be shutting down on June 20, 2008. Here is what they had to say about it:
“We’ve figured out in a very short amount of time that DocSyncer is a cool tool – but not a business. With no way to pay for itself, we’d rather shut the service down than let it fall into decay as our team begins to work on a new project.”
It was indeed a cool tool, as mentioned in our initial DocSyncer Beta review. However, it was not meant to be. Perhaps Google will take note and add a similar feature into Google Docs for all to enjoy.
In the mean time, I will be looking to BeInSync to fulfill my file synchronization wishes. (Read a BeInSync review here.)
