We are excited to announce that 500px has acquired the team behind Pulpfingers — the iOS appmaker company based in Strasbourg, France. Please welcome Jerome Scheer and David Charlec, the founders of Pulpfingers, who have joined 500px today.
With the help of Pulpfingers' technology and expertise we will work to develop and design even more beautiful, useful, and feature-packed apps for 500px. The ISO500 app will remain available in the App Store and users can expect an update that will introduce enhancements as well as support for iPhone 5.
"We're looking forward to continuing our vision and building beautiful, high quality applications for 500px," says Charlec.
"It's a great fit for us because we love photography, we love design, and we love the 500px community," says Scheer. "We're excited about the possibilities now that we're combining forces."
"It's been our intention to increase our presence in Europe and we've been looking for the right opportunity," says Gutsol. "We have huge numbers of photographers in Germany, France and Spain, so a central presence in France makes a lot of sense".
This marks the next step in our company evolution to lead the best online photography apps in the world.
