Particle started in 2008, and apparently has some celebrity financial backing from Justin Timberlake, who is an investor in the firm and has helped fund various projects.
Particle has produced HTML5 work for some big clients, which include Amazon, Motorola, Google, Sony, Yahoo and Apple, and the deal apparently went through some time last month.
There are no details as yet on what Apple intends to do with Particle, although the purchase was apparently done to acquire the talent at the firm, there are also no details on how much Apple paid for the company.
