Twitter is bolstering its platform development tools with the purchase of Cabana, a mobile app development platform. Cabana made the announcement today and said it will join Twitter’s efforts to help developers create new experiences on Twitter.

Cabana, which launched last year, said it will be shutting down its service on Dec. 1. We wrote about Cabana back in April when it released Fan Page Mobilizer, which lets any owner of a Facebook fan page reformat and optimize their page into a Web app. But it was also created a simple way to build mobile apps using drag-and-drop actions.

It’s unclear what exactly Cabana will do but it should help Twitter continue to build out its ecosystem in a way that fits its growing business ambitions. The Cabana acquisition is the latest in a buying spree from Twitter, which has bought seven other companies this year including Posterous, Summify and most recently video startup Vine earlier this month.

  1. Twitter is adding more muscle . Hope we will see something new in coming days

    Even though that Cabana ‘launched’ in February of 2011 at the Launch conference, they were always in a closed beta building out their product – so it’s a bit surprising to see them get scooped up and shut down their service even before coming to market. Our company Applique is developing a similar drag-and-drop app creation tool : http://home.applique.me/beta/

  3. No need to hire expensive programmers to create iOS and/or Android apps. I am using Snapppi web service which doesn’t require programming skills and have already made several feature-rich apps. You can check it yourself.
