We are acquired!
Posted by Kazuho Okui on 7:00 PM

I am excited to tell you that we have been acquired by Postup, an Idealab company.

Postup plans to keep Echofon team and products intact, and we are working hard on improving the family of Echofon products. New iPhone version should be out in weeks, and you’ll see amazing new features on Echofon for Firefox that will be available in beta sometime later this month.

Echofon started as my personal project three years ago and I never imagined it would become so popular, being used by millions of people. I would like to thank you all for your support that enabled our growth, and hope we can keep providing clean and simple user experience.


Echofonは僕がTweetlistを使うまでに最も愛用していたiPhoneアプリ。Macでは今でも絶賛愛用中である。余談だが、このアプリの愛用者といえば、大学の研究室の先輩でもあるジャーナリストの @taromatsumuraEchofon is best twitter client for iPadなどとブログで書いている辺り、かなり愛用してるようだった。突然の買収はびっくりしたが、引き続き、良いサービスを提供し続けてほしい。
