Remember automation tool Workflow, the hackathon project turned Product Hunt darling built by a team of Philly wunderkinds?

Well, Apple just bought it (and the team behind it) for an undisclosed amount, according to a TechCrunch report.

“A small, clever team (that were one-time WWDC student scholarship recipients) built a tool so useful on iOS that Apple itself essentially copped that they couldn’t do it better and bought it,” writes TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino. (WWDC is the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference.)

The Workflow team is Philly-heavy, with Conrad Kramer of Cherry Hill, N.J., Ari Weinstein of Mt. Airy and Ayaka Nonaka, who graduated from Penn in 2013 and worked at Venmo. Nonaka built this Relative Weather app that we liked for its simplicity and practicality. The fourth Workflow team member is Nick Frey, who went to high school in Iowa.
