Dropbox buys photo aggregation and sharing service Snapjoy
Snapjoy announced today that it has been purchased by cloud storage firm Dropbox. Snapjoy is a startup focused on aggregating photos from various sharing services -- such as Picasa, Flickr and Instagram -- and devices, providing users access to them in one place via a web interface and iOS app.
As a result of the buyout, signups for Snapjoy's service are now closed, but the iPhone app remains available on the App Store and the company says current users can still access their accounts. Specifics of Snapjoy's future plans haven't been divulged, but the company says it will share more details in the coming weeks and "leverage the technology and scale of [Dropbox's] platform" to provide "an incredible photo experience to over 100 million people."
