This post from Kiko guy Richard White is a healthy read. In it he dispels the idea that once Google (Calendar) got into their game, folding was the only option. Turns out there are a lot of non-Google reasons for Kiko’s demise. As usual, I found a quote which relates to the less-is-more attitude I’m so fond of…

Too many features killed the cat. It didn’t look it at first, but if you played around with Kiko 1.0 for 15 minutes you found out that there was a *lot* of functionality under the hood. Problem was that we felt we needed to bring *all* of that functionality over to Kiko 2.0. I mean you can’t cut features between versions, right? Wrong. We should have cut features, probably about 40% of them and launched.
