Google acquires Appurify, an app testing platform, iOS still supported

It was just announced that Google has acquired Appurify, which is touted as being "the most sophisticated cloud-based app testing service". This will enable app and game developers to test their products before releasing them on Google Play. Appurify helps developers take care of fragmentation, as it enables them to procure a large number of tests, most notably connectivity and battery-life simulating and ones. It was also revealed that Appurify will still support iOS. The app-testing service will be freemium. 

Hopefully, this means that we will be treated to a more streamlined user experience when it comes to Android apps from now on, as the Appurify service will help developers spot obnoxious bugs, flaws, and issues before their apps hit Google Play.

If this worked so well why is apple only half as stable as android? Never mind, right its the OS itself underneath. The tree has root rot.
