Apple Inc. has acquired Workflow, a popular mobile app for automating tasks, according to a TechCrunch report late Wednesday. Workflow allows users to group together a number of actions to complete tasks, such as creating GIFs from photos, posting photos to different social networks at once and calculating tips. "We are thrilled to be joining Apple," Workflow co-founder Ari Weinstein told TechCrunch. Apple confirmed the acquisition, but did not disclose the price. In 2015, the app won an Apple Design Award for its accessibility features. TechCrunch said the app, which had been offered for $2.99 on Apple's App Store, would be made free later Wednesday.
