Google acquires LaunchKit to make life easier for Android developers

Google has acquired LaunchKit, a set of tools that makes it easier to track sales, reviews and build a landing page for apps and services.

In a blog post, LaunchKit co-founder Brenden Mulligan says it will remain around for about a year:

As we focus our efforts on building great developer tools at Google, we also want to make everything we’ve built at LaunchKit even more accessible. As of today, we’ve open sourced our services so anyone can set up their own instance of our tools! As for the official LaunchKit service, it will continue to operate independently for existing users for the next 12 months, then it will be discontinued.

LaunchKit will be folded into Google’s Developer Product Group, which includes Google Cloud Platform, Firebase and other services.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
