Even after the acquisition, the Buddybuild team, which now has around 40 employees, will stay put in BC in Canada. Buddybuild describes itself as a "mobile reiteration platform" that is focused on continuous integration and debugging tools, giving app developers a simple workflow to introduce their apps into the world via GitHub, GitLab or BitBucket. Apple has put some of the success down to the new redesign which graced the App Store with the iOS 11 update in September.
Additionally, the company rolled out search ads within the App Store soon after, in October 2017. They help in attracting more users to purchase their devices. Apple triumphantly announced today that the late holiday season brought in more than a billion dollars in purchases on its mobile marketplace. Combined, both iOS and Google Play generated $17 billion in revenues for Q3 2017, up 28% from the previous year, the report stated.
Notably, shares of Apple have gained 48.5% in the past one year slightly outperforming the industry's 45.5% rally.

The move echoes Apple'sacquisition of TestFlight back in 2014, which began to require users to employ Xcode to utilize the service. The new design is supposed to make app and game discovery easier. During its three years of existence, it raised around $8.8 million.
Stewart Butterfield, co-founder of the photo sharing website Flickr and workspace messaging app Slack, has served as an adviser for Buddybuild. Existing Free Starter plans will be discontinued on 1 March 2018, and, perhaps not surprisingly, Android app development will cease on the same date. Its list of existing customers is impressive as it includes Mozilla, Hootsuite, Reddit and The New York Times.
