Lenovo app shop to sunset Sept 21, 2012

2012-09-18, 21:55 PM

All,

 

The Lenovo appstore is being sunset.  We are notifying our customers by email that will go out to all the registered users of the appstore.  I've attached the email below.  Sound advice to back up your apps, and I would recommend you check the Q & A on the support link.

 

Mark

 

 

 

We are letting our Lenovo App Shop registered users know that the Lenovo App Shop will no longer be available as of September 21. Our store partner has discontinued operations and we recommend using the Google Play Store for your Android Applications.

 

Your previously downloaded applications from the Lenovo App Shop will continue to work, however we recommend you select and install a back up program from the Google Play Store to back up your apps. If you have issues with apps you obtained from the Lenovo App Shop, the app developer or Independent Software Vendor (ISV) can assist you.  

 

If you have any other questions please refer to the following link:   www.lenovo.com/support/appshop

 

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate you as a valued customer.

Sunset eh... a new one on me!

 

Did anyone buy anything off the lenovo app store? I had 'offer' emails, but it was apps for like 20 bucks or something! I didn't get an android tablet to have to pay for things y'know! ;)

Interesting, the app prices I compared were always cheaper on the Lenovo store. They also seemed to make it easier to find business apps.

I never actually bought anything there either but it was only because of someone's post here that Mobihand was going out of business.

Mark,

 

Same question as Velomobile, "How do we remove it?"

 

If it doesn't work, it shouldn't be running on my device. I just checked the status and my A1 claimed it was running!

 

Thanks

All,

 

Regarding how to get rid of the store...

 

I'm told that the app will not disappear on its own even after the 21st..  You can remove by holding down on the icon and dragging to remove.   The app will remain in the app tray as it is in the system partition of the device.

Great ! Use the money saved from running the Lenovo App store and funnel it to the firmware dept to staff up to provide timely firmware updates for existing models !

So... once the Lenovo App Shop closes, and the built-in app can no longer "phone home", will we all start getting the famous Mobihand "Content Delivery Service" Force Close?
