Retiring Instalounge

I originally built Instalounge because I wanted to hack out a simple rails app in 24 Hours, but it’s time to say goodbye.

I thought of letting it die on Heroku via their new free plan - but I didn’t like the idea of letting something go to ruins - especially since it was built on an undocumented API endpoint.

I originally planned to shut off the servers in March (just after my course was done using it), but there are still a handful of groups (4 to be exact) who seem to want it up.

Instalounge will officially be retired on August 1, 2015.
