Google acquires LaunchKit


Google recently announced that it is acquiring mobile app tool maker LaunchKit. Launched two years ago, LaunchKit offers a suite of tools aimed at making the development of mobile apps easier. These tools include Screenshot Builder, App Website Builder, Review Monitor and Sales Reporter. According to LaunchKit, these tools have helped more than 50,000 developers create, launch and monitor their apps. As part of the deal, LaunchKit’s team will be joining Google’s Developer Product Group. The company’s hosted services will be open-sourced and available on GitHub in the next 12 months, and discontinued thereafter.
