Apple gains app development platform with Buddybuild

05 January 2018, 01:58 | Hattie Nash

Developers can integrate with popular tools such as GitHub, Slack, JIRA, HipChat and Trello.

The post also apparently states that their service will remain available to existing customers but the company will refrain from accepting new customers soon. It celebrated that fact by noting that it's a proud Canadian company. After all, not even the financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed yet.

Apple App Store now offers users close to 2,000 ARKit-enabled apps across various categories like games, shopping, education, social media, and more.

Apple also said it paid out developers $26.5 billion in 2017, up from $20 billion in 2016. That being said neither Apple nor Buddybuild has given any specific timeline of when will that happen. Late yesterday Apple revealed that App Store customers around the world made apps and games a bigger part of their holiday season in 2017 than ever before, culminating in $300 million in purchases made on New Year's Day 2018.

Pulwama Encounter: Four CRPF men, two militants killed
The terrorists first lobbed grenades and then began indiscriminate firing and entered the training centre in Awantipora. However, unconfirmed reports said one more militant was killed but bodies of only two have so far been recovered.

Meanwhile, Buddybuild says, "For iOS developers, Buddybuild can take care of all the work associated with code signing, and managing provisioning profiles for you". On paper, at least, Buddybuild would add to what TestFlight now offers with a deeper range of developer options and support for app developers covering Apple's range of mobile operating systems. This will further boost the make of an iOS app and run unit or user interface tests in the follow-up. They help in attracting more users to purchase their devices.

Buddybuild isn't Apple's first app development acquisition. This is according to App Annie report, which claims that Apple garnered revenue of approximately $11 billion in the third quarter of previous year while Android managed to clock only $6 billion in the same period.

Out of that number, Apple's share was around $11 billion. During the seven days that started on Christmas Day, the App Store took in an wonderful $890 million.

With the arrival of the iPhone X and all the new features that come with it, including the TrueDepth camera and the augmented reality technology that Apple is investing in, it only makes sense that it would want to make the jobs of developers as easy as possible.
