Silicon Alley Insider [via] is reporting that Vindigo's parent company is closing up their shop and has laid-ff Vindigo's 30 employees.
Vindigo is an application for the PalmOS (and Windows Mobile, though support there has always been thin) that was incredibly pioneering. Over 5 years ago, this application allowed you to sync up local information for a large number of cities. With it you could look up restaurants, get directions, view local maps, read reviews, find movie times, and more. It simply never has been equaled on the PalmOS platform by another application for its speed, quality, and value. Although it hadn't seen any significant update in several years, scores of PalmOS users still swore by the software despite its slightly dated look.
Vindigo lovers looking for a replacement may want to consider Live Search on Windows Mobile. For the Palm OS, I hate to say it, but there's not a great parallel.
Sadly, it appears that Vindigo's parent company, Japan's For-Side, tried to sell the company but was demanding way too much money for it.
We're sorry to see you go, Vindigo.
