Poster Acquired by Automattic

The Poster iOS app by Tom Witkin, was recently acquired by WordPress.com operator Automattic. But really it was more of an acui-hire, as Witkin will be joining the Automattic team, and no doubt, will be on the mobile team.

The uber-clean Poster was a one-of-a-kind app, as it boasted to be the only iOS app available to support Custom Post Types, along with just an overall beautiful interface.

This addition to the WordPress Automattic team will make for a great addition to continue building best-in-class products available for anyone to use.

The plus side is also that Automattic will make these tools available for free, where Witkin previously was charging for the Poster app.
