Mobile payments services provider Square is buying the photo sharing app developer Viewfinder for an undisclosed amount.
Viewfinder will remain based in New York, although the staff will move to Square's offices.
As for the Viewfinder, existing users will still be able to use the Viewfinder app for the time being, although the company will no longer be releasing updates or providing customer support.
Neither side is elaborating on why a credit card processor would want to buy technologies associated with photo sharing apps.
