that Apple has acquired Burstly, the software company best known for running mobile app testing platform TestFlight.
We don't yet know what this means for developers who use TestFlight to distribute early versions of their mobile games and apps to beta testers and reviewers, rather than relying on limited supplies of App Store promo codes provided by Apple.
Neither Apple nor Burstly has provided any meaningful comment on the future of Burstly software.
"Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans," stated Apple representative Kristin Huguet when pressed for comment by TechCrunch reporters.
It's worth pointing out that TestFlight recently announced plans to stop new teams from using its SDK -- current users may continue unhindered -- and cease supporting TestFlight for Android
