Tempo will sunset
on October 29, 2021

With a heavy heart, we'd like to inform everyone that we are closing down Tempo on Friday, October 29, 2021.

Three years ago, we recognised the problem of technology controlling our time and attention. We went on a mission to reimagine the email client and create one that helps people reclaim their focus and be productive.

Since then, we've expanded the team to 8 people spread across Europe, received investment and support from BoostVC and Founders, executed a complete redesign, launched the iOS beta this year, created our very dear Tempo Pulse community and much more. But we also realised over the years how much it takes to build an email client. It's complex, and the bar is incredibly high.

We put our heart and soul into Tempo, and are proud of what we have achieved. Unfortunately, that’s not always enough. Due to a mix of running out of steam both energy-wise and financially, we sadly don’t see a path forward for Tempo as a company.

If you're a paying subscriber, you don't have to do anything. On October 25, we will start the process of refunding your last payment. Head over to our FAQ for more info. Especially for you, we have also created a final standalone version for macOS that you can use without a subscription.

To all companies looking for talented people, we have an incredible team of individuals open to new opportunities. Have a look here.

To our customers, investors, the Tempo Pulse community, and all the people that rooted for us from the sidelines, a heartfelt thank you!

Sincerely,
The Tempo Team

And we're open-sourcing a few things

From our icon-set to our digital home

We’ve learned a lot from the open-source community, we’d therefore like to contribute some separate utilities that might help you fuel your next project.

The initial idea

The email client that helps you focus

With Tempo, our goal is to offer a calming experience to help you focus on email, work, and everything in between. And with this opinionated approach, comes a workflow that's different from regular email clients.
