The company behind the popular cloud storage app, Dropbox appears to be on a race to acquire apps that are doing well on the smartphone market.
Readmill is a fairly popular eBook reading app that has achieve success on both Android and iOS platforms. However, an announcement was made that the company will be shutting down all operations as of July 1st. New users will no longer have the option to create an account, and existing users get the option to export ebooks in multiple formats while they search for an alternative.
The team will be joining the team at Dropbox and work on making it the best cloud storage service, however it’s uncertain what role they will be playing over at Dropbox.
“As of today, it is no longer possible to create a new account, and on July 1, 2014, the Readmill app will no longer be available. For the next three months, our first priority is to help you transition to other services and get back to reading. All of your books and reading data are available for export in multiple formats.
“Our team will be joining Dropbox, where our expertise in reading, collaboration and syncing across devices finds a fitting home. Millions of people use Dropbox to store and share their digital lives, and we believe it’s a strong foundation on which to build the future of reading. We’re delighted to work alongside this talented team and imagine new ways to read together.
