TripAdvisor Acquires Tiny Post App Company
TripAdvisor has acquired a company called Beeem Inc., the company that has developed Tiny Post (iTunes). The Tiny Post app lets you add captions to your mobile photos using stylish fonts. The app lets you add unique filter effects to your mobile photos similar to the way that Instagram does it.
Tiny Post’s team will be based in TripAdvisor’s Palo Alto, California office going forward.
TripAdvisor co-founder and CEO Steve Kaufer confirmed the acquisition:
“The Tiny Post team have created a wonderful app that shows the possibilities of combining travel photos with social and mobile,” stated Kaufer. “We think Tiny Post is a great fit with our continued drive to provide engaging and sharable content and I am happy to welcome this strong team to TripAdvisor.”
