Apple Acquires iOS Automation App Workflow

TechCrunch's Matthew Panzarino had a big scoop yesterday:

Workflow the app is being acquired, along with the team of Weinstein, Conrad Kramer, Ayaka Nonaka and Nick Frey. In a somewhat uncommon move for Apple, the app will continue to be made available on the App Store and will be made free later today.

“We are thrilled to be joining Apple,” said Weinstein in a statement. “We’ve worked closely with Apple from the very beginning, from kickstarting our company as students attending WWDC to developing and launching Workflow and seeing its amazing success on the App Store. We can’t wait to take our work to the next level at Apple and contribute to products that touch people across the world.”

I can confirm what Panzarino reported about Workflow's future. I'm told the app will remain in the App Store for free. This should come as welcome news to many in the accessibility community who rely on it, as Workflow includes great accessibility support.
