Google acquires Bitspin, makers of Timely Alarm Clock


Google has acquired the software developers behind the insanely gorgeous Android app Timely Alarm Clock. It’s not clear how much money was involved or in what capacity Bitspin will work with Google. Surely we aren’t the only ones who would love to see more of this look in the overall Android aesthetic.

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.

In the meanwhile, you can now pick up one of the sharpest apps ever free of charge.

  1. As a mostly happy user of Timely this is pretty annoying. I’d been hoping to see some improvements to syncing and ‘advanced’ customization options. If the past is any indication there will probably be no further improvement at least not until Google can absorb and rebrand. Plus Google’s recent trend of stripping all but the most basic features away makes me a sad panda.
