Google Acquires Mobile Email Search App

The iPhone/iPod Touch application is the latest in a buying spree.

Gabor Cselle is the Founder and CEO of reMail, an iPhone and iPod Touch application that downloads email and makes it searchable. Cselle has announced that reMail has been acquired by Google.

As part of the acquisition, Cselle will now join the Gmail team at Google's headquarters in Mountain View. Cselle previously worked at Google, so we're guessing he'll handle the ropes quite well.

Also as part of the acquisition, reMail has been removed from the iTunes App Store. Support for existing customers will run through March.

Google has been on a spending spree as of late. Last week, they acquired social/Q&A search service Aardvark. In November of last year, Google bought mobile advertising service AdMob as well as VOIP provider Gizmo5.
