Mac and iOS Developer Acrylic Joins Facebook

Mac and iOS Developer Acrylic Joins Facebook

In other acquisition news, renowned Mac and iOS developer Acrylic has announced they will be joining the design team at Facebook:

I’m happy to announce today that we’ve packed up our small Vancouver studio and will be making the move to San Francisco in the coming weeks to join the design team at Facebook.

Our products and services have not been acquired by Facebook, and while there are no plans for further development on them, Wallet and Pulp will continue to remain available for download and purchase in their current form. We’ll certainly be the first to let you know of any updates or changes here in the future.

Well-known among the Apple community for their Pulp and Wallet apps for iOS and OS X, it's unclear whether the apps will also keep receiving updates for bug fixes or not. This isn't the first acquisition of a former Mac developer by Facebook: notably, the company acquired Sofa last year, which then went on to create the Facebook Camera app.
