Second Gear acquires Glassboard, iOS 7 update in the works

Justin Williams and Second Gear Software have acquired Glassboard from Sepia Labs, where it was previously developed by Brent Simmons. Anyone familiar with Williams should know what that means - pretty darn relentless development from hereon in. From the Second Gear blog:

Over the past few months we’ve been hard at work, updating Glassboard for iPhone to look more at home on iOS 7. We’re putting the finishing touches on the app right now and we’re hoping to make it available in the first weeks of the new year. By installing the current version of Glassboard on your iPhone, the App Store will auto-update to Glassboard 3.0 as soon as it’s available.

I've used Glassboard at conferences like WWDC and Çingleton, to discuss the beta testing of apps, including our very own iMore apps, and any time I need a private social discussion group. I've seen the work Williams is doing with the new version, and it's impressive. Congrats to Second Gear, and I can't wait to see the final product!

If you haven't tried Glassboard yet, you can grab it the current version from the App Store now.

Thanks for the update on this app. This appears to be a great social app for teams. I can't wait to see the new version for iOS 7.
