Ricoh drops App2Me

02 January 2012

Since just before Christmas, Ricoh removed App2Me, the MFP scan-to-cloud suite, from their download pages. They will cease to support it from March 30th 2012.

In September last year, Google announced that they will be phasing out support for Google Desktop. App2Me integrates quite closely with Google Desktop, indeed depended on it, but with the cancelling of App2Me Ricoh loses integration with the other apps the App2Me widgets assured, such as Evernote.

An early scan-to-cloud product, Ricoh’s App2Me was launched at the end of 2009. The playful look and feel, coupled with the apparent ease of downloading and installing the widgets onto the MFP interface made it look very appealing. The dependence on Google apps was always going to be an issue – and the difficulty of developing the widgets in the Java environment meant there were simply too few of them for App2Me to fulfill expectations.
