BroadMap is known for providing a wide range of geospatial technologies, mainly focusing on GIS and digital mapping to government and corporate and clients. San Francisco-based start-up Catch was a developer of mobile application mostly known for its cloud-based application for taking notes.
Interestingly, about the time Apple acquired Catch, the company closed its doors on August 30 and informed its clients that the Catch’s founders are taking the company "in a different direction."
Apple confirmed the acquisition of 15 companies this year, and three are still unknown. Known purchases are, besides Catch and BroadMap, Embark, HopStop, Locationary, Passif, PrimeSense, Matcha, Topsy, AlgoTrip and Cue.
