Twitter Sells Fabric to Google

Rich Paret:

In just two years, Fabric has grown to reach 2.5 billion active mobile devices, and Fabric’s Crashlytics and Answers kits were recently recognized as the #1 SDKs for app stability and analytics. We are incredibly proud of the products we have built and grateful to this community of more than 580K passionate mobile developers.

Today we enter the next chapter for Fabric and are pleased to announce that we’ve signed an agreement for Fabric to be acquired by Google and for our team to join Google’s Developer Products Group, working with the Firebase team.

Francis Ma:

Our ultimate goal with Firebase is to free developers from so much of the complexity associated with modern software development, giving them back more time and energy to focus on innovation.

The integration of Fabric is part of our larger, long-term effort of delivering a comprehensive suite of features for iOS, Android and mobile Web app development.

Marco Arment:

iOS devs: Any decent self-hostable crash reporters, analytics packages?

I think it’s wise to consider bringing this in-house these days.

Dumping Fabric for Overcast 3 since their Google acquisition. We had a good run and it gave me lots of data, but very little was actionable.
