Facebook has acquired Digital Staircase, a startup that creates photo apps for the iOS, according to reports.
On the Digital Staircase blog, founder Hamilton Chong wrote:
We're announcing today that we're joining Facebook, where we'll help to bring these kind of mobile innovations to a broader audience. Many things may change, but our dedication to immersive experiences will not. . . . In a couple weeks (around 12/05/2011), we will be closing down Digital Staircase as a standalone entity and will remove all iOS products from the Apple iTunes store. Those of you who own apps (MovieCam, SmartSplice, StereoCam, etc) will still be able to use them on your current device. Please look out for new innovations to be added to Facebook.
