    Got this in email just now - such a shame. Orchestra was a great to-do app for teams, with easy delegation and syncing across team devices. With this news, I will be deleting Mailbox as well. Kind of a crappy way to sell your current app - by telling people you're ditching one that was just as popular before.

    Between this and other apps that have been discontinued that mandated the use of the app makers own servers, I think I will avoid apps that require any sync service other than iCloud to be functional.

    Note that this doesn't apply to apps that have optional sync services but will remain functional if the sync service goes away.

    I don't remember everything about Orchestra, but I'm thinking you can do a whole lot that it offered with an Outlook.com account(s) and the stock iOS Reminders app.
