Google has recently acquired reMail from the AppStore and the removed it form the iPhones AppStore. Ha, take that Apple. One of the best apps for the iPhone could make its way to Android soon. Although this may end up being mashed together with the gmail app to enhance its functionality.

Gabor Cselle, the founder, will join Google’s Gmail team in Mountain View as a product manager and has issuded the following statement:

"You might be wondering what will happen with reMail’s product. Google and reMail have decided to discontinue reMail’s iPhone application, and we have removed it from the App Store. reMail is an application on your phone. If you already have reMail, it will continue to work. We’ll even provide support for you until the end of March, and we’ve enabled all paid reMail features for you: You can activate these by clicking “Restore Purchases” inside the app. reMail downloads email directly from your email provider to your phone, and your personal information, passwords, and email are never sent to or stored on our servers."

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this app, here is a video of it in action.
