As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. It is with sadness that I must announce that SURRAtech will be “closing its doors” in the Spring of 2017. Due to extreme marketing pressures within the iOS application ecosystem, SURRAtech is no longer profitable, and therefore we have no option but to dissolve our company and pull our apps from the iTunes App Store.
What does this mean for the users of our apps? Word Cross, meBible, and Actio will continue to work on your current iOS devices as long as Apple does not make changes to iOS that break the APIs that our apps use. However, since our apps will no longer be in the iTunes App Store after June 2017, you will not be able to download our apps on new devices. We highly recommend that you back up your apps to iTunes, which will allow you to restore our apps to your devices after they are removed from the app store.
We will be putting out one more update for meBible and Word Cross, which will bundle all our downloadable Bible translations with these apps so that you have access to these after our servers are shut down. We will also make all in-app purchases in meBible available to you free-of-charge and provided with that app.
Regarding meBible, we highly recommend that you export your personal notes. This way you can copy and paste those notes into another Bible app of your choosing if and when you decide to move off of the meBible platform due to lack of support.
I want to take a moment to thank all of our loyal customers over the years. We’ve received wonderful feedback regarding our apps, and my greatest sorrow in the closing of our company is that we’ll no longer be able to support you with great new features and updates to these apps you’ve come to love. Again, thank you for your feedback and encouragement over the years – you are what made this journey worth every sacrifice.
