February 23, 2014 in iPhone Miscellaneous by
Finally the news have been confirmed that TestFlight which is the mobile application testing platform and SkyRocket which is a advertisement management platform has been acquired by the Cupertino giant , Apple. The acquisition amount hasn’t been disclosed but it is expected to be in a large amount considering the fact that they will be removing their Android application soon.
As reported on Tech Crunch
On Wednesday, TestFlight announced it would be terminating Android support as of March 21, for example, while also announcing that it was discontinuing its TestFlight SDK. According to support documentation, only existing teams will be able to continue to upload builds with the SDK. New users and those who have never uploaded the SDK are now being asked to remove it from their builds.
The company also shut down FlightPath, its mobile analytics solution that entered into beta last year, following the Burstly/TestFlight tie-up. Links to FlightPath now redirect to the TestFlight homepage, and this seems to be a recent change.
