  • Pros: 

    We will know apps we should delete from our phones

    Cons: 

    Can’t think of any cons

    Sometimes I have apps that are new and cool but that I use occasionallY. When I have to use them, some won’t open because the App Store will say that the creator of the app has not updated the app. Sometimes months go by and still no updates. Are they out for good? Are the app creators aware that they need to update app? Are they working on it? I’d like to know! So, a graveyard would be a good point of referenc.

    Maria de Jesus has never used this product.

Very unique & thoughtful hunt. The fact that this doesn't have more upvotes makes me question the entrepreneurial pool wandering Product Hunt Edit: I spoke too soon. Trust reinstated

I like the icons. "The founders became attached to the product and let bias get in the way of pivoting."

It's not the first time a resource of companies which failed but it's one of the best. I really like the fact that you share the reasons of failure 👍

This is awesome - hopefully more data will be added over time to increase it's value. I specifically enjoy the "History of User Experience" section. As a first time founder, I am constantly measuring my product's look / feel against the successful (read: still alive) companies in my space. It's great to be reminded that we all start somewhere, and that things weren't always as polished as they are today.

Helpful site, but aren't there already 3 or 4 of these out there? Autopsy.io, Collapsed, DeathWatch...

@evankimbrell Well perhaps we'll get to see who makes the cut and ends up in the graveyard
