ChastiKey shutdown timeline
« on: August 30, 2021, 11:56:20 AM »
Hi,

I wanted to provide a timeline of things that will happen with the shutting down of the ChastiKey app. These may change slightly depending on other factors, but I would see timings being extended rather than brought forward.

- September 20th 2021: Deactivating of old versions of ChastiKey. All versions up to and including version 2.7.2. The reason for this is that older versions of the app don’t have the relevant code in them needed to help with the overall shut down. I’m doing this in the middle of the month because I will be away in the first week of October so won’t be able to give much time to dealing with problems that may occur from deactivating these versions. If you are using an old version that is deactivated you will need to update to the latest version available.
- November 1st 2021: Remove apps from both stores. You will still get updates if any are made after that date, but it’s unlikely updates would still be made from then.
- January 1st 2022: Deactivate the ability to create new locks. Any existing locks will still run as normal.
- February 1st 2022: Trigger an unlock for anyone still locked.
- March 2022: Shut down the ChastiKey app server (not this Discord server)

The last couple of items in the list above may change depending on progress of other apps because the plan is to offer the chance to transfer data over to any replacement app that allows it.

At some point after shutting down the app, the forum will probably be made read only as well.

There's a few apps being built by users of ChastiKey. Two should be available for testing within the next month or two.

You can follow both on Twitter for more information, and I will share details here when they are available for testing

All old versions of ChastiKey up to and including version 2.7.2 have now been deactivated. If you are using an old version you may find that it hangs on the loading screen. If so please check to see if you need to update. It should only affect a few 100 users out of about 18,000.

@KevinCross Just have to say one more time. Thank you for your time and dedication to Chastikey and also that your have given away the code so other new projects may look at the code and use parts or base their coding from it. So thank you from probably all of us who have used Chastikey over the years. So enjoy your "retirement" and let the "young ones" carry on the legacy. :)

So sorry to hear that you are shutting down. After a medical delay, I was ready to embark on a new adventure, only to find your app was not on Play. I hope an alternative is developed. Thanks for your past service.

Check out this thread for some apps that are being developed by users of ChastiKey: https://www.chastikeyforums.com/chastikey-chat/replacement-apps-in-development/

ChastiSafe is currently the only one that is really useable at the moment, and the one with the most features available. The UI needs a lot of work still, but the developer is aware of that. Getting it to work is a higher priority.
