SAN FRANCISCO--A young startup specializing in Android smartphone lock screens that anticipate what “app” a user might want at any give moment said Monday it has been bought by Twitter.
The acquisition comes about a year after the launch of Cover, which said its free application, which hit the virtual shelves of Google Play's online shop in October, has reached hundreds of thousands of users.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Cover team has joined San Francisco-based Twitter, according to the startup.
