Boxcar.io bought by Kwaga, makers of WriteThat.Name

Its been quite a week for acquisitions in the technology world this week, with Google buying Sparrow and VMware buying Nicira, and we’re still now done. Kwaga, developers of WriteThat.Name, have aquired Boxcar.io, for an undisclosed amount. Boxcar.io was on of the first apps/services that tackled and organized push notifications on the iOS platform, allowing users to receive alerts from several source including Twitter and Gmail. WriteThat.name is a web service that keeps your address book up-to-date automatically by scanning and updating records on a variety of email services.

On the reasons for this purchase, The Verge commented:

According to Kwaga CEO Philippe Laval, an obsession with “attention management” brought the companies together. Boxcar founder Jonathan George will join Kwaga’s board as an advisor and work on “join development projects” that bring Boxcar’s notification expertise to WriteThat.name.

It also seems like Boxcar.io will continue working as it has been, but now its just a matter of waiting to see what these two teams cook up in the web app space.
