Swell App Shuts Down As Talk Of Acquisition By Apple Continues
July 31, 2014 at 4:13 AM (PT)
As expected, the SWELL talk radio and podcast aggregation/streaming iOS app has shut down as reports of the company's acquisition by APPLE continue to circulate. APPLE is said to be paying $30 million for SWELL (NET NEWS 7/28).
SWELL abruptly stopped working for users WEDNESDAY (7/30), and its website now reads, "Thank You: Thank you for using SWELL over the past year. We wanted to let you know that the SWELL service is no longer available. We’ve been inspired by the opportunity to create quality products that positively impact users’ lives, and we are grateful to all our listeners. Thank you everyone for your support!"
The message makes no mention of the APPLE deal.
