Developer Tom Witkin announces the move on his website:
I’m elated to share that I, along with Poster, will be joining Automattic. I’ll be working with the mobile team where I’ll be both designing and coding.
I love Poster — it’s what I use on my iPhone and iPad to post here. I’ve never been a fan of the WordPress iOS app, so I’m curious as to what this acquisition means in terms of improving it. In the meantime, I’ll continue happily using Poster, still the best WordPress blogging app on iOS.
