Google makes timely buy of Swiss app maker

Bitspin said it is joining Google

In a move likely designed to bring into its fold a team of Swiss Android developers, Google has apparently bought Bitspin, according to a post on the website of the maker of an Android alarm clock app.

"We're thrilled to announce that Bitspin is joining Google, where we'll continue to do what we love: building great products that are delightful to use," the post reads.

For its part, the search engine giant has not issued any confirmation or further details of the apparent acquisition.

Bitspin's post added that the Timely app "will continue to work as it always has."

The Zurich firm is made up of a small team that studied computer science at ETH (Eidgenoessische Technische Hochschule) Zurich, according to Bitspin's site. It includes Jorim Jaggi and Adrian Roos -- both previously Google interns according to their Google+ profiles -- and Selim Cinek.
