Apple Buys Burstly

Added on by Paul Wood.

TechCrunch broke the news on Feb 21st 2014 that Apple Purchased Burstly the developers of TestFlight and SkyRocket

I think this is a smart move by Apple to aquihire some developers in a key area they are having trouble with. Their iAd distribution and the iTunes App Stores.  Test flight has some great native SDKs that help developers get feedback from customers, I personally hope some of those features are added to the iOS 8 APIs so all users can give the developer feedback on the application through iTunes Connect instead of through 1 star reviews.
