Great Jones Street, the popular fictional app has recently become the victim of ever-increasing profit making demand that every publisher wants its app to fulfill. While a number of superb applications have kept dying an unusual death, another great application Great Jones Street is going to shut down by the end of the year, i.e. by 31st of December 2017.

It was an app-based fiction magazine that succeeded delivering exceptional stories in a host of genres right from the adventurous one to the erotic tales and to the ones that keep suspense as the most important of all elements. The app’s publisher Kelly Abbott announced the end of this exceptional app through a Facebook post. Kelly admitted that the app “failed to convince enough readers to support it.”

Great Jones Street was launched back in 2016, with a mission, as per Kelly, to introduce readers to great stories and great readers. The publication focused a Slick app and some of the exceptional designs for the stories. The app majorly focused on the type of the stories that could be read in a couple of minutes meaning readers’ can easily finish up a story while standing on a long queue outside a mall or waiting for their turn in an overcrowded restaurant.

The app’s aim was to accommodate more fiction into people’s lives through narrative stories. The application was rolled out as free and later followed a subscription plan of $1 a month. The most outstanding news about this app was the genre of stories it stored for the readers and the quality of the writing as well.

In the past Great Jones Street made a deal with Medium to help its content reach to the readers. While the publisher made hundreds of attempt to reach the audience, he also admitted that the app never reached “level of subscribers needed to sustain even our basic levels of operational costs,”. As an effect of the same, Abbott decided to take the app offline by the end of the year.

Shutting down of such an amazing application is more a loss to the readers who were rendered an exceptional experience through the fictional stories. Closing down of this kind of an application surely means the end of a great era that offered great entertainment to the readers.
