Acrylic Software, the Vancouver-based software design studio specializing in apps for Apple products, has been acquired by Facebook. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Acrylic is best known for Pulp, which collects news feeds and organizes them for convenient reading, and Wallet, secure storage for sensitive information like passwords and account numbers. These apps will remain available for purchase but will not remain in development.
“Facebook is an invaluable service that we all use daily, and a company I believe is one of the most innovative and important around today,” wrote Acrylic Software founder Dustin MacDonald on the company’s blog. “Simply put, there’s an opportunity at Facebook to have a big impact in many people’s lives. More importantly, Facebook is full of extremely talented people who will be able to help realize its full potential in the years to come.”
