Plancake announced December 24th, 2014 via mass email that they would be shutting their doors by November 30th of 2015.
I had signed up and used Plancake a few times.
While I personally didn't have much to use the personal task manager for, I saw a greatly useful utility for a lot of people.
And it is free, so I am a fan.
This is the email I received 2 days ago:
Sadly Plancake is going to shut down on the 30st November 2015.
This will give us all almost one year of time to find an alternative product and move our tasks over.
I suggest you should have a look at Wunderlist.com - I believe it is a great product and they have a powerful free account.
Please make sure you move all your data by the 30th November 2015, as it will not be available after that date.
This has not been an easy decision to take but I believe it is the best one for both the company and our users.
Please get in touch should you need any clarification or help.
Thanks a lot for the time you have spent with us and sorry for the inconvenience caused by this discontinuation.
It has been a great ride, I have really enjoyed this experience personally (with its highs and lows) but all good things need to end at some point.
Good luck with your endeavours.
It's sad to see a great idea not make it. Hopefully this is a re-structure and not the end, per-say.
The website is becoming available, so if you want plancake.com, take action.

As a personal note to Dan, thanks for a great free service and a great idea!
