CloudOn made mobile document editing tools for nine million users

Dropbox, the cloud storage document-sharing firm, has acquired Israel-based Cloudon. The firm is a mobile document editing tool developer.

CloudOn made apps that let users create and edit Microsoft Office files on mobile devices. The firm will now shut down its services following the acquisition.

“Today, we’re taking the next step toward our vision of reimagining docs – by joining the Dropbox team. Our companies share similar values, are committed to helping people work better, and together we can make an even greater impact,” said the firm on its website yesterday.
