Twitter today acquired crash-reporting tool Crashlytics. Numerous companies use Crashlytics to find out when their apps crash on consumer devices, as well as what the root cause of it was.
The apps currently using the service are Twitter, Vine, Yelp, Kayak, TaskRabbit, Walmart, Groupon and Waze, the team says. This is a pretty big group of iOS heavyweights and it will be interesting to see how those relationships progress now that the team is a part of the “flock.” The team won’t be moving from its Cambridge location to San Francisco and things will run as usual. We’re not sure of exactly how many members of the team there are, but we’ve learned that it’s not necessarily a tiny operation.
