Walmart buys out developer of Amazon, Obama, Starbucks apps

ipodnn: "Walmart has bought out Small Society, a mobile app developer currently based in Portland, Oregon, reports say. While mostly unknown to the public, the developer is responsible for a number of high-profile apps. A partial resume includes Amazon, Starbucks, Zipcar, Live Nation, Whole Foods, and the 2008 Obama election campaign.

Small Society will become part of Walmart's Mobile Labs, which the retailer is hoping will help change the shopping experience."
