Google Buys Mobile Email Utility reMail, Gabor Cselle joins Gmail team.
Google [[GOOG]] has acquired reMail, a company that provides advanced email search capabilities for the iPhone platform. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. First thing Google did after the takeover was to cut Remail’s ties with Apple’s App Store, reMail founder Gabor Cselle @gabor, who founded email start-up reMail in 2008, and was YCombinator funded in 2009, posted today on his personal blog. Cselle is the former VP of Engineering for Xobni and also a former engineer for none other than Google.
“Google and reMail have decided to discontinue reMail’s Apple’s [[AAPL]] iPhone application, and we have removed it from the iTunes App Store,” he said.
“Gmail is where my obsession with email started as an engineering intern back in 2004, and I’m thrilled to be coming back to a place with so many familiar faces. reMail’s goal was reimagine mobile email, and I’m proud we have built a product that so many users find useful. Still, I feel like we’ve only seen the beginning of what’s possible. Google is the best place in the world to improve the status quo on how people communicate and share information. If you have what it takes to make these changes happen, I encourage you to reach out and come join me…” he added.
