Campfire is a web-based app that lets you create chat rooms, share files, track transcripts, and do all sorts of other things that have made the service popular with business users and software developers. You can access Campfire using a web browser — or up until today you could use a 3rd party app called Ember for $9.99 if you were on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.

Actually, you can still use Ember… except today it has a new name. And it’s free. 37signals (the company behind Campfire) has announced that it’s purchased the app from Overcommitted, the company that developed it.

Now Ember has been renamed Campfire for iPhone. It lets you communicate in multiple chat rooms, share pictures, and access transcripts.

Campfire for iPhone is available as a free download from the App Store.
