Twitter nabs Android lockscreen expert Cover

Twitter has nabbed Cover, a popular lockscreen app on Android that offers instant access - ditto shortcuts - to the right apps at a specified time. The news was confirmed by Cover on its official blog.

"It’s been an incredible journey, a journey that we’re excited to announce is taking a turn today as we bring the Cover team to Twitter to take these ideas even further," founders Todd Jackson, Ed Ho, Gordon Luk said.

The financial details of the deal were not disclosed. Twitter, on the other hand, has yet to issue an official statement.

Explaining the reason behind its decision to join Twitter, Cover said that both companies share the same vision and belief in Android.

"They share our vision that smartphones can be a lot smarter — more useful and more contextual — and together we’re going to make that happen. We’ll be building upon a lot of what makes Cover great, and we’re thrilled to create something even better at Twitter," it  said.

For now, the Cover app will continue to be available on Google Play. The founders, meanwhile, will be joining work at Twitter.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
