Google’s Acquisition of Bitspin Made the Premium Alarm App Free for Android

Startup acquisitions are as frequent as snowstorms this season, so here’s another one from Google – the company acquired Bitspin, the Zurich based app developer that created the Timely, the beautiful Android alarm app, which have since been made free and available to all Android users through Google Play.

For now, the app is free and available, but it’s not clear whether Google will continue to develop the app:

We’re thrilled to announce that Bitspin is joining Google, where we’ll continue to do what we love: building great products that are delightful to use.

For new and existing users, Timely will continue to work as it always has. Thanks to everyone who has downloaded our app and provided feedback along the way; we truly appreciate all your support.
