Apple Buys An App Development Service

Apple Buys An App Development Service

Apple has put some of the success down to the new redesign which graced the App Store with the iOS 11 update in September.

Moreover, integration of machine learning with Core ML in building apps is also attracting developers to the platform. It is a startup company based in Vancouver.

The acquisition is expected to boost Apple's efforts to ramp up its app ecosystem and developer community. buddybuild is very popular among the developers including both iOS and Android.

The good news for Android developers is there are other services like Buddybuild.

Finch was a father of two children - a two-year-old and a seven-year-old - and his family said he didn't play video games. Authorities in Wichita said someone made a prank call to 911 with a made-up story about a shooting and kidnapping.

In March past year, Apple chief executive Tim Cook announced his intent to launch a startup accelerator for the iOS developer community in India. That being said neither Apple nor Buddybuild has given any specific timeline of when will that happen.

Notably, shares of Apple have gained 48.5% in the past one year slightly outperforming the industry's 45.5% rally.

Buddybuild was founded in 2015 by ex-Amazon employees Dennis Pilarinos and Christopher Stott.

Developers who make apps for iOS earned $26.5bn in 2017, Apple said in a statement on Thursday, as users snapped up breakout hits including games like Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and Monument Valley 2. It allows IOS app developers to run a UI & beta test and simultaneously offers a secure environment to build a proficient app. The startup also plans to discontinue the free starter plans and future app developments from March 1, 2018. In 2014, Apple purchased the third-party service, TestFlight, which helps developers in testing and collecting the feedback for the iOS apps. In its almost three years of existence, the startup has managed to raise around $8.8 million, including a $7.6 million Series A led by Kleiner Perkins Caufield back in May of 2016. Buddybuild counts high-profile clients such as The New York Times and Mozilla, somehow giving a clue on the company's competent services and explaining why Apple took notice.
