Aviate’s going to get better, faster with Yahoo!

It’s been quite the past few months for Aviate. Since launching the product last fall, we’ve been amazed and encouraged by the incredibly positive response we’ve seen from the Android community. Today, we are absolutely thrilled to announce that Aviate is being acquired by Yahoo. Don’t worry, Aviate isn’t going anywhere.

We founded Aviate with a mission to make our phones smarter and organize themselves around us, instead of vice versa. In short, make our phones simpler. We’re thrilled you love the product and want you to know that we are committed to continued innovation of Aviate. The technology and product will remain the same — it’s simply going to get better, faster.

When we met with Yahoo, it was obvious how aligned our visions are. Yahoo, like us, is all about simplifying and streamlining users’ daily habits through intelligent and beautiful products. We see endless opportunities for how the two of us can work together. We can’t wait to take this next step.

Thanks for all your support, excitement, and faith in our product. We could never have made it to this place without you, and can’t wait to continue to simplify your lives. If you haven’t had a chance to try Aviate, for a short time we’re offering the code “YAHOO” as a way to celebrate this announcement.

Here’s a link to Yahoo’s post and Marissa’s CES keynote announcing the deal, in case you’re interested.

Stick around, Aviate’s just getting started.

Thanks,
Mark, Paul, and Will

    The hell it is. I remember what Twitter said when they acquired TweetDeck, and look what happened there.
