Apple Officially Shutting Down Today

| Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

It’s official. Apple is shutting down its beta online service today, which means the ability to store and sync documents for Keynote, Pages, and Numbers through will no longer exist.

Apple let us know back in March that they planned on shutting down the service, and warned that everyone should copy files from the website back to a local computer to avoid data loss. After today, any files stored in accounts will be deleted and removed from the service.

But don’t worry, users who have Mountain Lion on their Macs have another option. Apple used the file synchronization features from and integrated them into iCloud. The only downside is that iCloud doesn’t include’s document collaboration features. iCloud accounts are available for free.

So if you still have files in your account, make sure you copy them somewhere else in the next couple of hours or everything will be lost. You’ve been warned.
