A report says Apple shut down its MobileMe service Sunday, and on Monday, the company reminded iWork.com users that the end of their service is next.
The two moves are part of an effort to steer users toward using iCloud, a cloud-computing service Apple launched last year at its Worldwide Developers Conference similar to the two services Apple is ending.
MobileMe launched in early January 2000 under the name iTools, and since then, it underwent several brand-name changes until finally being named MobileMe in 2008 in a relaunch alongside the iPhone 3G, the second version of Apple's mobile operating system and the iPhone App Store.
The service was poorly received due to its $99 price tag and many problems users experienced after the 2008 rebranding.
Following the announcement of iCloud, Apple gave MobileMe about one more year of service before finally shutting down, according to 9 to 5 Mac.
