Automattic Buys Simperium, Maker of Simplenote

Standard

Last week this breaking news about latest’s Automattic acquisition of Simperium appeared into my feed-reader.

Over Simperium’s blog now we can read:

Automattic and WordPress are huge proponents of open source software so we’re happy to be able to go forward with our plans to open up the code, starting with the iOS and JavaScript client libraries. In the short term we’ll also be moving to faster hardware, so overall performance and stability of the hosted service should improve.

We’re going to keep expanding Simperium as a tool for building apps. Adding Simperium to apps that can work from a local datastore lets you automatically synchronize data across different instances and platforms. This way of building apps feels natural, a model where the developer can focus purely on the data itself, not networking or APIs. Synchronizing data is just part of the problem though. We’ll be adding better support for things like binary syncing and collaboration, along with a wider variety of client libraries.

I am very confident on Automattic guys to make the right moves to improve their services and the ones provided by SimpleNote – of which I’m an avid & happy user. Let’s hope that my wishes will stay true …
