Hootsuite Acquires Swift App

Days after launching its Android application, Hootsuite is announcing that they have acquired developer Swift App. This doesn’t come as a total surprise as Swift App was the company behind the development of Hootsuite’s recent twitter client for Android. Observant Android users who had previous experience with Swift app noticed striking similarities between the two apps.  As part of the acquisition, Sebastian Delmont, will join the HootSuite team as a mobile adviser. 

HootSuite for Android lets users manage multiple Twitter profiles, perform realtime search, and track keywords. Further, it’s possible to drill down on click-through stats for your tweets right from the handset. Down the road, Hootsuite plans to integrate Facebook and other tools to help businesses and teams manage their social networking segments.

    Great shame – swift app is a great twitter client that presumably will get no more development under that guise. Hootsuite's interface is painful to use. Twicca will probably get my custom sooner than I thought (once htc pull their finger out and push the 2.1 update out :)
