Online social games sensation Zynga announced it has bought Mobile Five, a Canadian firm specializing in software applications for mobile devices.
Five Mobile is a mobile application development company that specializes in multi-platform development across various smartphone platforms. The team has worked with some of the largest media and technology companies, including Disney, Sony Pictures, AT&T, Bump, Flurry and RIM, in North America to develop branded, interactive mobile apps for a number of platforms.
As part of the deal, four of the company’s employees will join Zynga and work at the newly created "Zynga Toronto," the company’s first development studio in Canada.
The transaction is Zynga’s 15th acquisition in 13 months.
