After some days Apple has played another biggest move in the corporate world. Yes, Apple has just bought a Canadian based Application start-up named BuddyBuild after acquiring TestFlight in 2014. Apple will use BuddyBuild to create various upcoming applications for its third-party products like Mac, iPhones, and Ipads.
What Is BuddyBuild?
As I said, BuddyBuild a Canada based software startup which Apple has bought after it raised $7.6 million dollars. This seems unbelievable how Apple is taking over small start-ups like BuddyBuild And testFlight which are very successful from the beginning. As a result, BuddyBuild is no longer going to server Android applications and clients who wish so. Clear Cut though!
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.
It is reported that BuddyBuild team has joined the XCode Engineering Group at Apple Lab to build various iOS applications. As to the deal made with Apple, BuddyBuild will start operating from Vancouver and its service will remain same to the existing customers of itself.
Still, BuddyBuild is not accepting any new clients. It was later found in 2015 by the former Amazon employee Dennis Pilarinos and Christopher Stott. And they alone managed to make a fundraising total of $8.8 million. After that, it reportedly made $7.6 million in May. 2016 again. And you can guess the cause why Apple got this small lab handed over to itself.
