A few weeks ago, we reported that popular iPhone (s aapl) email search app reMail had been purchased by Google (s goog). As a result of the purchase reMail was no longer going to be available in the App Store.
On Friday, reMail founder Gabor Cselle made a second announcement with some good news for reMail’s fans: reMail’s code is being made open source. It’s being distributed under an Apache 2.0 license via Google Code.
Cselle indicated in the announcement that he hopes reMail’s code can serve as a building block for other mobile email apps. He also indicated that he has provided some documentation of the code and started a Google Group to encourage development of projects using the code.
