LaunchKit group heads to Google and open-sources the collection for assisting devs launch their apps

The group behind LaunchKit, a set of tools that helps developers launch their apps, is streamer to Google and fasten a Developer Product Group.

It doesn’t demeanour like LaunchKit’s products are relocating over to Google, so a group motionless to open-source a products and make them accessible on GitHub. LaunchKit’s hosted services will be accessible for a subsequent 12 months. After that, they will be discontinued.

LaunchKit currently offers 4 tools and developers will now be means to take them and run them themselves: Screenshot Builder for simply formulating annotated screenshots for Apple’s and Google’s store, App Website Builder for formulating manageable alighting pages for new apps, Review Monitor for — well… — tracking reviews in Apple’s App Store, and Sales Reporter for gripping lane of sales. The group has also created a integrate of how-to guides for developers, too.

Launchkit itself launched in early 2015 and was co-founded by Brenden Mulligan, Taylor Hughes, and Riz Sattar. They before built Cluster and a series of other apps for both iOS and Android.

The team says LaunchKit has generated over a million screenshots for developers and startups have used it to build over 8,000 websites. In total, over 50,000 developers have now used one or some-more of a services.

It’s misleading what accurately a LaunchKit group will do during Google. In today’s announcement, a group says it will concentration a “efforts on building good developer collection during Google.” Given this announcement, though, we wouldn’t be astounded if Google launched a set of collection identical to LaunchKit’s in a nearby future.

The group lifted a sum of $2.2 million ($1.6 million for Cluster and an additional $600,000 after it motionless to concentration on LaunchKit). The company’s investors include Baseline, Freestyle, First Round, SV Angel, GV (formerly Google Ventures), Sherpa, and a series of angel investors.
