Yesterday, we reported that Apple’s new Messages app icon looked pretty shamelessly similar to that of HipChat‘s. Now HipChat has spoken out about the maybe-theft-probably-concidence, and while they don’t have any hard feelings, they still think it sucks they’re about to get steamrolled by Apple.
Speaking to John Biggs at Techcrunch, HipChat CEO Peter Hurley said: ““I doubt we’re on Apple’s radar, but it sucks that we’ll probably have to change our icon because of this.”
But what will HipChat change their logo to? Hurley’s response was cheeky.
“I was thinking of releasing a new version of our app with this as the icon.”
