In a post on the Popfly Team Blog the team just announced that Popfly, which never got out of beta, will be discontinued on August 24. popflystop_thumb_3bad6e19 News

We want to thank everyone who registered for and used Popfly. We’ve been fortunate enough to see all the innovative mashups, Web pages, and games you’ve created since we launched Popfly two years ago and it’s been a pleasure to watch the spirit of creativity flow through a growing Popfly community over the life of the product.

Unfortunately, on August 24, 2009 the Popfly service will be discontinued and all sites, references, and resources will be taken down. At that time, your access to your Popfly account, including any games and mashups that you have created, will be discontinued.

For those interested in expressing their creativity in software development they point to other products that might be of interest, such as Microsoft Web Platform Installer for web applications, and Microsoft XNA or Microsoft Kodu for Xbox.
