We're very excited to tell you that Mixel has been acquired by Etsy, the marketplace we make together.
It's a wonderful fit for the ideas and passion that went into everything we've built. Read the announcement on Etsy's blog.
This news means some changes to Mixel too. Starting with the latest version of our iPhone app, available in the App Store today, we're phasing out the social network aspect of Mixel. The unique core creativity engine remains, though: you can still pull in your pictures from just about anywhere and Mixel will automatically compose beautiful collages for you.
Once you update your app, you'll no longer have access to the social network. But don't worry, you can still access your work: the new version will let you import all of the mixels you made from our servers into our new, private gallery, built right into the app. Just login with the service you used to open your Mixel profile (either Facebook or Twitter) and we'll save them to your iPhone.
If you'd like more detail on what this means, please read the FAQs below.
Finally, a thank you for being part of the Mixel story. Many of you were with us from the very start, when we debuted with our iPad app in late 2011, and we're grateful you stuck with us through all of the twists and turns. You made it all worthwhile, and we can't thank you enough.
All the best,
Khoi, Scott, Akiva & Roy
