It's hardly a surprise, given the disbanding of the Slide contingent, that the Pool Party photo sharing service and app also has been put to bed. Pool Party was never much more than a beta endeavor (at least as far as end users go), and we're willing to bet a bit of the service is found in Google+ anyway.
Pool Party will remain up for a few more weeks, ending service on Oct. 14. Here's the official word:
Thank you so much for being a beta tester and early adopter of Pool Party. As you may have seen, Slide recently announced that most of its products will be discontinued over the course of the coming months, including Pool Party. Starting in a few days, Pool Party will no longer be accepting new photo uploads.
Pool Party will shut down completely on October 14th, 2011.
To download your photos, log in to www.poolpartyapp.com. You can download any photos you've uploaded as well as all photos from any of your pools. This functionality will be available until October 14th.
Thanks for all your feedback and support,
Pool Party Team
Fare thee well, Pool Party.
