Facebook has pulled its Riff, Rooms, and Slingshot apps from the App Store and shut down its Creative Labs initiative, reports CNET.

As of Monday, Slingshot, Rooms and Riff, an app that allowed users to create and share short videos based on a theme, have been pulled from app stores. The Menlo Park, California-based company has also removed the Web page for Creative Labs.

A Facebook spokeswoman confirmed the news noting that, "Since their launches, we've incorporated elements of Slingshot, Riff and Rooms into the Facebook for iOS and Android apps."

Facebook's news comes just as Dropbox announced it is shutting down its Mailbox and Carousel apps for iOS.

Thank God all that crap is over. I hope the site gets shuts down one day as well but its making allot of money on the people that feeds it core. Real life is much better anyway.
