dots & lines discontinues webOS versions of Carbon and Graphite Twitter clients

One year ago, one of our favorite webOS Twitter client -

has fought through those chills to release

with a slew of fixes. But one can only handle so much, and the small development firm of dots & lines has decided to call it quits on webOS.

Citing the continued cost of development to keep up with changes to Twitter's APIs and user expectations coupled with unsurprisingly declining sales, dots & lines made the decision to pull both Carbon and Graphite from the App Catalog. That means no more sales for either app, but it also means that existing purchasers of the app won't be able to redownload the apps after deleting them or when setting up a new webOS device.

While we can understand the thought process behind ceasing development on Carbon and Graphite, especially with dots & lines already having released

and with

in alpha and Carbon for iOS on the drawing boards. We are disappointed by the decision to pull Carbon and Graphite from the App Catalog, as it denies current users the option to redownload it in the future. Sure, Carbon stands a very good chance of becoming abandonware as Twitter makes changes that break the current API implementation, but we know that now going forward. Then again, new purchasers might not realize that and could be stuck with an app that only functions for a short time. dots & lines is at least considering open sourcing the code for Carbon, even if it is the year-old Mojo framework and not the newer Enyo.

Update: dots & lines has

that they are offering refunds to anybody who purchased Carbon or Graphite for webOS in the last two weeks.

      OLED65B8 webOS browser won't accept password for Amazon.com account.  Winows Chrome on desktop or Android phone both sign in normally.
      I have several other account sign-ins that do the same thing -- work on desktop but not on TV.  What's going on?

      Hello.. I want to install latest webos system version to my tv .. I think rooting it may help .. is there any guide or steps to follow to do that ? 
      Also I want to be able to rollback to my current version if the install with root failed due to drivers for example.

      So LG has put webOS on TVs, projectors, and now cars with webos auto. Does anyone thing LG will ever produce a webos powered smartphone or tablet? I know samsung has tried with tizen and it was only with the palm pre 2 and touchpad from HP that we saw webos on these types of devices. Just curious on what everyone thingks. Here's what webos used to look like..
