BlackBerry announced this Thursday morning that the magazine viewing Newsstand app for BlackBerry 10 devices would no longer be available after April 30th of this year. The service will no longer be available after that date, and the app will no longer be available for download in BlackBerry World.
The company recommends downloading any content to your phone that you wish to keep, as it will no longer be available after the month of April. If you so decide, you can delete the app early by going to the screen where you have the app, pressing and holding it for a few seconds, and then tapping the tiny trash can that appears on the top right corner of the icon.
In addition to Newsstand getting the axe, BlackBerry News for the PlayBook and BlackBerry 7 and earlier devices, will also be discontinued on April 3rd.
There’s no word as of yet as to why both of these apps have reached the end of their digital lives, so stay glued to N4BB for any more details, should they appear.
