Kobo acquires Mac developer Aquafadas
The news that e-reader company Kobo bought Aquafadas, a French-based developer known for its digital-publishing software, normally wouldn't make the radar of many Mac users. But Aquafadas is known to the Mac community as the brains behind MotionComposer, BannerZest, SnapFlow, iDive, VideoPier, PulpMotion and more. It also developed the tech behind MacTech's iPad app.
While Kobo will be utilizing Aquafadas' publishing system to bolster its e-reader and platform, there is no word yet on the fate of its Mac apps.
