Apple Opens TestFlight Beta

Apple said late last week that it has expanded access to TestFlight, the app beta testing platform, letting developers invite up to 1,000 testers to beta test their iOS apps. Apple's TestFlight service comes courtesy the acquisition earlier this year of Los Angeles-based Burstly, which was venture backed by Upfront Ventures, Rincon Venture Partners, SoftBank Capital, and Founder Collective. Burstly, which was led by Evan Rifkin, acquired TestFlight back in 2012. TestFlight was created by Ben Satterfield.
