Apple has acquired buddybuild, a continuous integration, continuous deployment, and user feedback platform for development teams.
Launched in October 2015, buddybuild improves the development workflow for mobile app developers by streamlining the process of building mobile apps and making it possible for mobile teams to involve end users as part of their development workflow.
In 2016, the company announced a $7.6USD million Series A funding round led by Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers and with participation from all pre-existing investors, including Amplify Partners, Bloomberg Beta and First Round Capital.
Buddybuild shared news of their acquisition in a post today:
We're excited to share that the buddybuild team has joined the Xcode engineering group at Apple to build amazing developer tools for the entire iOS community.
We've always been proud to be a Canadian company, so we're also pleased that we will be staying right here in Vancouver — a hotbed of developer and engineering talent.
The buddybuild service will remain available to existing customers to build, test, and ship iOS apps to testers through buddybuild.com.
As of today, we are no longer accepting new customers. Existing Free Starter plans and Android app development will be discontinued on March 1, 2018.
If you have questions about an existing account, please contact us at: email@example.com.
