Apple Buys BuddyBuild To Make Life Easier For App Developers

Apple Buys BuddyBuild To Make Life Easier For App Developers

All the employees of Buddybuild will join Apple's Xcode engineering division to create new tools and features for the iOS developers.

For iOS developers, Apple's acquisition should ultimately be a boon, making app development a bit easier and streamlined. Apple says, "The team (currently employing around 40 or so engineers) will stay put in BC, a fact that the startup celebrated by noting that it's always been proud to be a Canadian company".

But the deal also means the effective end of the Android app development that the company added last February.

Reports Suggest Apple May Buy Netflix
Netflix invests heavily on original series and has crafted some of the most popular and talked-about television series we know of. Many in the industry are already aware of how Apple has struggled to plant a foothold in the movie and TV streaming business .


Moreover, integration of machine learning with Core ML in building apps is also attracting developers to the platform. The Apple acquisition is really exciting for the Apple fans amid legal troubles and iOS issues in the recent past.

As stated on its official website, Buddybuild essentially helps in faster and efficient development of IOS apps. 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. Google Play Store continues to dominate the app market despite the tough competition from Apple's app store, which is obviously causing lot of anguish for the iPhone maker.

Apple App Store recorded over $890 million in purchases in seven-day holiday period starting Christmas Eve 2017.

United States to Withhold All Security Assistance to Pakistan
Pakistan denies allegations but President Trump has escalated the criticism against the country since he took office last January. That $255 million is included in the suspended aid announced Thursday by Nauert.


More to the point, it should make developing and iterating apps for iOS that much easier than before. A year ago also saw Apple unveil a redesigned App Store with the release of iOS 11 in September. Apps generated $17 billion in Q3.

This year will keep the developer community for Apple on the toe, with iMac Pro only started shipping, and the new Mac Pro desktops on the line. 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.

As Apple acquires BuddyBuild, it is not just looking to expand on greener pastures like coming up with its first scripted television series but also keeping a strong hold on what they are known for!
