Appurify Experiences Explosive Growth, Acquires Mobile Continuous Integration Platform cisimple

August 12, 2013

Growth driven by interest among enterprise application developers

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Appurify, the pioneer in on-device debugging, CI testing and performance optimization for mobile applications, today announced strong user momentum alongside its acquisition of Angel Pad-backed cisimple, a continuous integration platform for mobile. With its industry-defining tech, Series-A funding led by Google Ventures and cisimple acquisition, Appurify has firmly positioned itself as the leading end-to-end solution for enterprises serious about creating high-quality mobile products.

Since Appurify’s Series A announcement in May, the company has seen a 10x increase in bookings driven by enterprise customers seeking more efficient ways to optimize the time-consuming mobile development process. To support this demand, it has more than doubled its team in its San Francisco office and grown its device farm from a few hundred to nearly a 1,000 devices, making Appurify the largest API-accessible iOS and Android device cloud in the world.

To further accelerate growth and product development, Appurify has acquired cismple, a provider of continuous integration services specialized for mobile and Fall 2012 graduate of the AngelPad startup accelerator program. Namely, cisimple CEO Kevin Rohling will join the company as its director of product effective immediately. To Appurify, Rohling brings a deep bench of expertise in mobile build systems and mobile testing frameworks. At the company, Rohling will help build out Appurify’s existing platform as it scales its service to support expected rapid adoption among enterprise customers in Q3 and Q4 2013.

Quote from Manish Lachwani, Appurify CTO:

“Mobile app developers are increasingly realizing that manual testing and optimization of their apps is slow, painful and not scalable. This is only going to get more pronounced with the significant development effort they will have to go through to work on iOS 7 and on new iDevices,” said Manish Lachwani, co-founder and CTO of Appurify. “The urgency to find automated performance optimization and on-device debugging tools that easily integrate into existing development processes has been the primary driver behind our user adoption. We’re thrilled to have Kevin and his expertise on our team as we fulfill this demand.”

Quote from Kevin Rohling, former cisimple CEO:

“Appurify has an incredible team of engineers and they’ve developed the most advanced technology I’ve seen for testing and optimizing mobile applications,” said Kevin Rohling, director of product at Appurify. “Several months ago cisimple began working to integrate its build server with Appurify, and we quickly realized there was a lot of overlap in our visions for the future of mobile developer tools. I’m excited to be a part of the team and I really believe we’re going to dramatically improve the quality of the mobile apps you use every day.”

cisimple, which was founded in 2012, plans to discontinue hosted service on September 6, 2013. Until that time the service will remain active and is now free of charge.
