Saying goodbye to iGoogle Jessica Schwartz 11/1/13 12:41 AM
As we announced on the Official Google Blog nearly a year and a half ago, today we’re retiring iGoogle. Moving forward, iGoogle will redirect to www.google.com. If you’ve been using iGoogle gadgets to access information from Google products like Gmail and Finance, you can continue to do so via our new app launcher.

We know that many of you enjoyed your customized iGoogle experience, so if you’re looking for alternatives, there are some options that might fit your needs.

Since the initial closing announcement in July 2012, many people have contributed useful information to the following iGoogle threads here in the Google Search forum:
  • FAQ - What will happen when iGoogle closes? (Many thanks to our Top Contributor bluequoll for writing this excellent resource.)
  • iGoogle Alternatives Discussion - Share ideas about services similar to iGoogle.
Sincerely,
The iGoogle Team

Frequently-asked questions

1. What will happen to my iGoogle data?
All iGoogle data will be systematically deleted from Google servers.

2. Will there be any way to retrieve my data from Google in the future?
No. All user data will be permanently, and irrevocably deleted.

3. Will this affect my other Google services?
No. It simply means you will access them in a different way. You will still be able to use Google Chrome as your web browser, and you will still be able to access all Google services, such as Gmail, Google Search, Google Bookmarks, Google Calendar, Google Finance, Google Translate, etc., by opening them directly.

4. Why was iGoogle discontinued?
Please refer to our blog post for more information.

5. What will happen with third party gadgets?
Gadgets provided by third party developers will continue to be served. Google Sites, and other third party sites that have installed these gadgets will not be affected.

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle fanta00 11/1/13 1:28 AM
Can I still somehow get access to my data? I had a lot of notes which I would like to copy somwhere else.
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle bluequoll 11/1/13 1:35 AM
fanta00:
It's not as if 16 months wasn't enough notice!
However, you can still backup your iGoogle settings at http://www.google.com/ig/settings, but probably not for long.
Whether that will recover your data or not I can't say.
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle HakanEr 11/1/13 2:37 AM
Another stupid move by Google.
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle fanta00 11/1/13 3:30 AM
Thanks! the link helped. I managed to back it all up to the file there, and all my notes are in xml file.
(16 month notice was plenty of time, but I haven't been using igoogle for some time and missed the deadline ;)
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Zouzou 11/1/13 4:36 AM
As far as I'm concerned, this is rather:
Saying goodbye to Google
 
iGoogle was my portal to various Google services; but after having witnessed in bewilderment the treatment this supposedly "don't be evil" company has given its users regarding not only this issue but also several previous ones, I am now moving away from the last thread that was still keeping me tied to Google.
 
For the moment, I have set up ighome.com with a Bing search engine. This is probably temporary, but anything that keeps me away from the hypocrisy displayed by Google keeps me happy.
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Angus502 11/1/13 5:36 AM
I've looked for a replacement for a long time. I've reviewed a half dozen different services and most of them are terrible. Some I don't hate, but don't really like. Seems like a pretty easy thing for Google to keep running. Very disappointed they are screwing us all, this way.
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Dan Strawn 11/1/13 7:23 AM
And now I yahooooooo!
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Jim Proefrock 11/1/13 7:36 AM
Interesting that Google has never really given users a good reason why a service that many people have relied on is being removed.  Keep in mind I said a GOOD reason.

Many of the replacements that are being mentioned will more than likely direct the frustrated users to Bing, Yahoo, or similar.

Sorry to see a useful tool be removed for unnecessary reasons.

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Mike Wille 11/1/13 8:24 AM
boo google. bring it back.
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle mdpark 11/1/13 9:24 AM
I'm really sad to see it go after using it since the initial rollout.  I understand that Google may have no longer wanted to support it but knowing how many users relied upon iGoogle, it seems like there was and still is a very dedicated fan base.  How much resources could it possibly take to maintain the infrastructure or at least a fraction of it for loyal users?  

I think I speak for most when I say no one needed new iGoogle development.  It was/is a good product and had it just allowed me to add existing gadgets in feeds, I would have been content.

I really hope Google will reconsider its decision.

Try iloggo  - icons based homepage which also work on mobile browsers
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Joshua Bonstead 11/1/13 10:38 AM
The pop up that has been displaying on my iGoogle page has said all along that after November 1, iGoogle was going away.  It is not after November 1st and it has gone away.  My kids were off school today and I told them I would help them get their stuff off of their iGoogle pages.  Now we can't.  I have two disappointed kids and I'm pissed.  If it was going away at midnight on October 31, they should have said so.  Not going away after Friday, November 1.
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Jim Proefrock 11/1/13 11:06 AM
Icons are not even close to what iGoogle was, sorry but this is not relevant Rafal.
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Bob Ulius 11/1/13 11:28 AM
I am once again incredibly disappointed in Google. I used iGoogle dozens of times a day and no alternative comes close. I'm running 5 of them now simultaneously in tabs trying to find one to work work with. Some has such obvious misses and would not take much to be a great replacement.

Oh well....

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle eknirb 11/1/13 1:02 PM
Well, you had 16 months.

that said, i'm done with Google.  I switched everything to Bing.  Quite happy about that.
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Ryan Learned 11/1/13 2:09 PM
You can still export your stuff here: http://www.google.com/ig/settings
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Mari (Startme.com) 11/1/13 2:30 PM
Thanks for the info! Now it is time to find an option that works good for each one of the iGoogle users. And remember that you can still export your info for some hours, so if you haven't done it, right now would be the time.

Bye, iGoogle.

Regards!

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Mukk 11/1/13 3:33 PM
Bob, I know it's difficult to change the tools that you're used to. But you may switch to www.hinto.co and, if you like it, build your new homepage there with as many tabs as you need.
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle kathrynh 11/1/13 4:33 PM
I had my home page set up so nicely, now it is gone. It had a lovely background, gmail inbox list, weather in a couple of places, google translate, I don't even remember...I was so used to it and now all I get is a search box. Ugly. Is there any way I can get it back? I didn't know it was called igoogle. I didn't even think about it. I don't like this.
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Nancy Hig 11/1/13 5:19 PM
I did not know my Dell Homepage was iGoogle and now I have nothing.  The directions on the page that was labeled iGoogle were of very little use.  So I saved stuff in a file.  Then what??? And, as I said, the Dell page didn't say igoogle it said Dell.
All my Dell info is now gone.
what am I supposed to do now.
 
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Trevor Makepeace 11/1/13 5:55 PM
Had enough now. First it was the screwing around with gmail - the idiot tabs that Google decided to shove at me without the common decency of asing first, then Google deciding I'm not really interested in straightforward search results and stuffing anything remotely useful way down the first results page, under a sheaf of trivia, pseudo news and adsense junk that seems to be based on stuff I am no longer interested in or companies and products I already know about.

Now Google has decided I didn't want a neat summary of stuff I was interested in, all set up in one place. It's taken iGoogle - probably the most useful Google product I know: simple and appealing, like a baby seal - Google dragged it outside and clubbed it to death.

Nice.

Oh, the mobile version of iGoogle went ages ago. On that now, instead of a summary of my stuff I get a string of template searches for Bars, ATMs and the like. I just wonder: Did it cross the minds of dumbcluck idiots at Google that, if I wanted stuff like that on my homepage, I'd have damn' well put it there myself? Wake up idiots - It wasn't there simply because I have no use/interest in stuff like that.

I have let Google monetise my search demographics and my other personal data you've raped me for, so it can't start bitching that I shouldn't complain because I've used your product for free. I've not; I have paid hansomely with my data and behaviour for it to sell or used to (mis)direct ads at me.

Right now, I'm discovering a whole load of decent alternatives for the stuff I actually want. Screw you Google, I'm off.

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Trevor Makepeace 11/1/13 6:02 PM
Jessica.

I just had a look at the App Launcher you suggest as an alternaive for some of the iGoogle functionality.

It was a joke

Er - it was, wasn't it?

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle kathrynh 11/1/13 7:01 PM
That 16 month notice was about backing up data - I had absolutely no idea my home page setup was data. But I used the opportunity to back up this afternoon and I have absolutely no idea how to use the resulting program language file to get back my home page. HEY GOOGLE - HELP!!!

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle kathrynh 11/1/13 8:33 PM
Thanks so much, Bluequoll, I'll check out the * ones. I certainly don't want to go back to Yahoo, but I will look at the others. This is great information and I really appreciate it. Whatever other functions iGoogle had, I don't care, I just want my cool personal home page back. Thanks again!
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Mari (Startme.com) 11/1/13 8:43 PM

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle tirwolf 11/2/13 1:00 PM
Well stupidity knows no bounds. iGoogle was an excellent source of everything that you wanted and needed at a quick glance with a colorful theme of your choice as a backdrop. Why delete such an efficient and pleasant page? The alternatives are not helpful. Guess it's time to find a better homepage and browser. Have to wonder what the purpose of backing up my data was for if I can't import it or access it?

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Sparkymeetoe 11/3/13 5:19 PM
Move me, erase me, ignore me, it doesn't matter. I have no say in the matter of iGoogle and you made a stupid mistake with regaard to customer satisfaction. But you are big enough like the banks to not care anyway. It won't make a difference in your bottom line, your profit, your margin, your moolah, whatever you want to call it.
 To your credit you gave fair warning and anyone who missed the warning is not very observant or lost in their own world.

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle stretchini 11/4/13 1:36 AM

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle chickskis 11/5/13 12:50 PM
Highly disappointed that you got rid of the old homepage format. I fallowed your instructions on how to save my old iGoogle settings  and all my info went into an application I could not open , had to trash everything !  I changed to Google Chrome searching through a bunch of apps that alot of them are designed for a tablet. I have an iphone , the apps format is fine for that , but really sucks for my home computer. I will be using Bing or Yahoo for my search engine from now on .  I have always been a fan , now I think it really SUCKs what you did ......

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Russell Groom 11/6/13 12:36 PM

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Muffins3 11/8/13 12:05 PM
Jessica, it looks like you may be the authority on this forum re: the iGoogle homepage matter. I'm one of your iGoogle victims of abandonment and need some help.

I am not at all tech-savvy, plus I have some disabilities that make it difficult for me when there is too much going on, especially on a home or start page. I relied upon my iGoogle Homepage for my few important apps to just open up and tell me what I NEEDED to know for the day so I wouldn't forget: Google Calendar, Google Tasks, Gmail, weather, maps/directions. All of these sync up with my laptop and Android phone (which I chose because it worked so well with my iGoogle apps).

One of the posts mentioned the arrogance of Google; but I would like to believe that you/Google would not be condescending and try suggest a way that someone like me might be "accommodated" in the absence of this necessary tool. So far the suggestions for alternatives have not been at all helpful.

Thank you.

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle narnia2000 11/8/13 7:30 PM
Google has provided plenty of time to migrate out of google but there is no good alternative offered.  The most useful google page of all the google apps and services was igoogle and now it is gone for no apparent reason.  

The blog post linked above for "why igoogle was discontinued" is entirely pointless and may as well be deleted.  It says that when igoogle was created we couldn't envision the way the internet is today and it doesn't describe how anyone is using the internet today differently than in the past.  Perhaps this is because today igoogle is just as useful as it was years ago, and the silly apps in chrome don't replace a portal view.  

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle thisisnotbetter 11/9/13 5:08 AM
what good does backing up your settings do when i have found nothing that allows me to set up chrome to display or function in the same fashion. i want my igoogle back this bites.

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle diamante1000 11/11/13 6:22 AM
And the biggest one is missing.  Absolutely no easy instant way to access Bookmarks.  I have 109 bookmarks that I use on a regular basis that have been organized into subfolders.  This gadget was on my home page that I accessed from ANY browser (Firefox, Safari, etc.).  Bookmarks is NOT on the Apps page.  Have to click on Apps, then More, then Bookmarks.  Then the bookmarks default to an alphabetical listing.  Then I have to click on Folders to view them in their subfolders.  Then I may have to click on Page 3 to access the bookmark I need.  Simply ridiculous.  

This was all seamless before.  The gadget appeared on my iGoogle homepage.  All right there.  Neatly organized into a compact listing.  I've tried ighome -- not a solution.  Startme also not a solution.  What were you thinking, Google????

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle diamante1000 11/12/13 9:05 AM
Issue with this is that you must sign in with your facebook log-in.  I have absolutely no desire to have EVERYTHING linked to Facebook!  And THAT's another discussion!!
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle diamante1000 11/12/13 9:10 AM
Unfortunately Yahoo seems to be the only option out there.  I left Yahoo because of the ads.  Back in the day, you could move the ad to the bottom of your page (BELOW your level of vision).  And now Yahoo has figured out that no one was looking at the ads.  So their solution?  Place a static ad location in the upper right-hand corner that CANNOT be moved; thereby taking up valuable real estate for ads that I do not care to see.  
Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Mikey2312 11/12/13 4:10 PM
It's not a perfect solution by My Yahoo! really does seem like the  best option.  I've been using it for a week now and it's ok.  I still use Google for search but I just periodically click on the My Yahoo! bookmark to get all of my personalized stuff.

About ads...you know, I made peace with those long ago.  These are companies that employ people and they have to get paid somehow.  If posting an image of a dog eating Purina helps them make payroll, I'm ok with it.

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle MrDoh 11/12/13 4:41 PM
Got to say that "My Yahoo" is doing fine...since Google doesn't need to be showing me advertisements, I'm happy with Yahoo.  Apparently Yahoo realizes that customers/users are a good thing.  

Wondering, though, how "Google Financial" is doing for hits after closing down iGoogle.  I'm certainly not going there like I was when I used iGoogle.  Good luck to Google, I've learned to stay away all that I can, since once I get started using something from Google, they either ruin it or just plain shut it down.  Their choice, of course.

You can not personalize the "boring Google home page" unless you use Google Chrome browser. Even then the personalization is limited to an extension that allows a page background to be applied.

Re: Saying goodbye to iGoogle Muffins3 12/18/13 9:33 AM
For me, the thing about IGoogle was that it was an invaluable tool and aid for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). It was not confusing; my to do list was always visible and prominent on my home page. Can't tell you how many things I've overlooked since that assistance is no longer available. Not JUST convenient, but necessary. Research shows that these "accommodations" can and do make life a little more manageable for people with disabilities. Check out articles on ADDitude Magazine, Vocational Rehabilitation websites, etc.
Is there anyone else out there who has been affected in this way? Does Google care? Certainly not.
