Apple Aquires And Removes Swell Application
Apple has acquired concept Concept.io and in turn, the company’s Swell Application for iOS, however to users dismay it appears to have been closed down.
Swell was one of the best pod-casting apps on the App store, however Apple seem to have not thought the same way, but not only did they pay $30 Million for the services, they then shut them down within hours of the acquisition.
Swell featured a drop-dead simple, card-based user interface that was gorgeous. It literally required zero thought and let the content take centre stage.
Once the application had been stopped, users to swells website were greeted by a message that read:
Thank You for using swell over the past year. We wanted to let you know that the swell service is no longer available.
We’ve been inspired by the opportunity to create quality products that positively impact users lives and we are grateful to all our listeners and thank everyone for their support.
It is currently unclear what Apple plans to do with the Swell service. It may get integrated into the iTunes radio application or it could even be re-designed and re launched which I personally think a lot of its previous users are hoping for.
