Dropbox has been making some big moves lately acquiring other smaller applications as last week, they acquired Audiogalaxy, and today, Snapjoy has been acquired.
If you’re unfamiliar with the service, Snapjoy is an online photo library that aggregates your photos from your camera, phone and photo-hosting services like Instagram, Flickr and others. Not only can it combine all of your photos in one easy-to-find service, but it also gives the user the power to share it with who they like, whether privately or through various social networks.
The acquisition could help Dropbox give its photo storage experience the kick it needs as its updated iOS application has its own dedicated photo tab, but could certainly use the photo expertise Snapjoy could offer.
Snapjoy potential customers won’t be able to signup for a new account, but those of you who already have accounts with the service will be able to continue using it for the time being. How long those users will be able to continue to use the Snapjoy service before they’re forced to move to Dropbox, or even if that’s what will happen to Snapjoy, is unsure at this point, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as we hear more regarding this acquisition.
