BitBQ Acquires LittleSnapper for iPhone from Realmac Software
I’m excited to announce that BitBQ has acquired LittleSnapper for iPhone from Realmac Software! The fine folks over at Realmac are really focused on their Mac desktop applications. As a result, they have run out of time for LittleSnapper for iPhone. As a fan of the app, I was sad to hear this and that’s when a discussion about acquisition started.
BitBQ will now take up full time development of the application and it will be rebranded under a new name: Cinder. Additionally, the application will be updated to better utilize the Ember service provided by Realmac. Keep an eye on this blog ( or twitter ) for status updates as Cinder makes its way back on to the store, which should occur in the first couple of months of 2010.
For those of you that already own LittleSnapper for iPhone, you will need to re-download Cinder once it becomes available. The App Store will not know that the applications are essentially the same. I really wish it didn’t need to be that way, but it’s the system Apple has in place. I’m going to help alleviate some of the inconvience: for the first two weeks, Cinder will be free. After that, it will become a paid application.
I want to thank Dan Counsell, Danny Greg, and Nik Fletcher at Realmac for their help during this transition.
