The Spanning Sync service will go offline permanently later today. We stopped selling Spanning Sync a year ago today and a few weeks later decided to make it permanent. We've continued to operate and support the service for the past year, but the day has finally come.
Users of the current version (v3.3) can uninstall Spanning Sync from within the pref pane itself (located in System Preferences), as shown here:
You can also use the Uninstaller that comes with the package at spanningsync.com/download:
Users of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger (and therefore Spanning Sync v2.1.3) should use the uninstaller from the package at spanningsync.com/tiger-download.
The good news is that Apple and Google now provide good (and free!) options for syncing your calendars and contacts:
- OS X: How to sync Google Calendar with Apple iCal
- iOS: Sync Gmail, Calendar and Contacts on your iPhone and iPad
I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that this is an emotional day for me. Spanning Sync has been one of the the most rewarding experiences of my professional life. I'm sad to see it end.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Spanning Sync, Inc.
Update (12:19pm CDT): The service is now offline.
