    Just a day after Apple purchased Swell, the personalized radio and podcast application has officially shut down. Swell’s shuttering, according to Re/code, was “part of the deal.”

    When you try to play a radio station or podcast, you’ll receive the following message:

    Thank you so much for supporting Swell. We want to inform you that Swell is no longer available. We’ve been inspired by the opportunity to create a quality product and are so grateful for your support. For more information, please visit the Swell website at www.swell.am.

    Swell previously raised $7.2 million from investors including Google Ventures, DFJ, and InterWest Partners.

    Re/code reported that Apple paid $30 million for Swell.

    The company was previously working on a version of Swell for Android, but that’s obviously not going to happen.
