TweetDeck, which Twitter acquired in 2011, has confirmed when its mobile apps will come off life support.

The company announced its plans to wind down support for the Android and iPhone app, as well as the TweetDeck AIR desktop app, back in March, but only said the cut off would occur in "early May".

TweetDeck said in an update to the original post that the apps will dropped from app stores on 7 May. 

"TweetDeck AIR, TweetDeck for Android and TweetDeck for iPhone will be removed from their respective app stores and will stop functioning on May 7. Our Facebook integration will also stop on May 7," it said.

Instead of mobile offerings, TweetDeck is focusing on developing the client as a web application and app for Chrome, noting that power users tend to rely on TweetDeck on the desktop, while preferring the Twitter client for mobile.

The PC and Mac TweetDeck clients remain supported, but they play second fiddle to the Chrome and web apps, which receive the latest capabilities first.
