RIM Shutting Down Tungle.Me Service to Focus on BlackBerry 10 Calendar and PIM Apps


Tungle.me was an awesome service (and still sort of is) that made scheduling easy. The company, based in Montreal before its acquisition by RIM, had an excellent suite of desktop and mobile apps to help you schedule in a few easy steps. After the acquisition by RIM, there were a few product updates, including BlackBerry PlayBook support (but not the best implementation), but since then nothing has really happened. Today, Tungle announced it would be shutting its doors on December 3rd, 2012, to focus on BlackBerry 10.

All of our new responsibilities within RIM are very exciting; however, it hasn’t left much time for innovation on the core Tungle product over the past year, as we’re sure you have noticed. To make the most of our new focus, we have sadly decided it is time to shut down the standalone Tungle service.

As of Monday, December 3rd, 2012 we will shut down the standalone Tungle service. You will continue to be able to use your Tungle.me page until then to schedule meetings and share calendars. We know our dedicated members rely on Tungle every day to manage their calendars and we don’t want to leave you out to dry, so we suggest you check out Doodle to replace Tungle in December.
