GhostBird acquired by Yahoo!, Kitcam and PhotoForge 2 now removed from the App Store
GhostBird Software, the developers of Kitcam and PhotoForge 2, has been purchased by Yahoo! to become part of the Flickr team. As a result, both applications have now been removed from the App Store, though will continue to work for anyone who has already downloaded them. Equally, if you've ever had either of the apps you'll still be able to re-download them. While disappointing for fans of their apps -- we love Kitcam here at iMore -- the guys from GhostBird are looking forward to their new endeavours:
"As photography enthusiasts, we are long-time admirers of Flickr, and we’re thrilled to be able to bring our technology and passion for beautiful photos to the Flickr team."
Yahoo! has been pulling out the big guns of late with Flickr, and while the true purpose for this acquisition is yet to be seen, we can only imagine Yahoo! must have new things in the pipeline. So, congratulations to the GhostBird team, but equally we're sure a lot of you, like us, are sad to see their apps leave iOS.
