Anyone testing a new app before it goes live has probably used TestFlight to get the job done. Now comes word the company behind the product has recently been acquired by Burstly, a company that specializes in app monetization. And with it, a new service for developers has been born, according to MG Siegler, writing for PandoDaily. Say hello to TestFlight Live. According to the report, TestFlight Live helps developers see how well their apps are selling, and how well their in-app purchases are doing; all using a Chartbeat-like dashboard. In addition, the product shows developers what versions of the app people are using. Keep in mind, however, the original TestFlight isn’t going anywhere. In fact, that service remains alive and well, and yes, free. For the time being, TestFlight Live is free also, although premium features will be made available at a later date. Any product that helps developers make their apps better is great news in our book! In fact, many of us here at AppAdvice have used TestFlight in the past and are looking forward to doing the same with TestFlight Live. For more information, be sure to check out the official TestFlight Live website. Are you excited about TestFlight Live? We'd love to know!
