On behalf of its society partners, Springer Nature created and managed around 500 journal-specific apps which allowed users to read content from those journals on their Android and iOS mobile devices.
As a result of falling usage for these apps over the past few years, they have officially been discontinued since the end of January 2019. We have reallocated our resources to other projects that will benefit our journals.
Users will still be able to access the content on our websites which are now extremely well adapted for viewing on different mobile devices, and we have observed most users searching for content are directed to our content platforms SpringerLink and Nature.com from a Google search.
A list of the impacted journal apps is attached.
