SingTel will be acquiring United States-based photo search and aggregation smartphone app maker Pixable for US$26.5 million (S$32.4 million).

This follows the telco's expansion outside of its telecom business and into territories dominated by the likes of Google earlier in the year.

Early this year, SingTel bought Singaporean food website HungryGoWhere for US$9.4 million and US-based advertising firm Amobee for US$321 million.

Three-year-old Pixable's smartphone app aggregates and personalises photos on social networks for users based on their click history.
