Facebook announced Tuesday its latest talent acquisition: Strobe Corp., a San Francisco-based mobile app development startup. Financial details have not been disclosed.
According to a blog post announcing the deal on Strobe’s website, the company “was founded on the belief that HTML5 can transform the way average people use their mobile phones through apps that are available everywhere, anytime, on any device.” The company has around 15 staff, and its board includes Lars Leckie of Hummer Winblad and Bryce Roberts of O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures; both VC firms invested in Strobe.
Following the deal, Strobe says its service will continue to be available to existing users in its existing beta form, and SproutCore will live on as an independent project.
