Google has just acquired Bitspin, the company behind the largely popular Android alarm clock App, ‘Timely.‘ The announcement was made a few hours ago by Bitspin on its website:

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.

For new and existing users, Timely will continue to work as it always has. Thanks to everyone who has downloaded our app and provided feedback along the way; we truly appreciate all your support.

- The Bitspin Team

Timely is an alternative to Android’s stock clock App, and with an average rating of 4 and a half stars on the Play Store, it is no secret that tons of users prefer this custom iteration.

The App is designed to be extremely minimal, beautiful, and functional. It features three basic screens that you can swipe through; one for the alarms, one for the clock, and one for the stopwatch/timer. It also features multiple appealing themes and Alarm tones. All of this, combined with the fact that the App is completely free of charge, makes it a must have.

With Google having bought the company, this could mean that we might see a similar App, or the same one integrated into future versions of Android, or perhaps Google does appreciate competition.
