Mobile CI in 2018

5 minute read Published:

It’s been a couple years since I looked at the options for Mobile Continuous Integration (CI) for iOS apps. Last time I did this, I decided on BuddyBuild, who has since been bought by Apple. Unfortunately BuddyBuild is no longer accepting new customers, and they discontinued free plans and Android support in March of 2018. I hope this means that Apple will offer their own hosted CI solution soon, and with any luck it will go as well as the acquisition of TestFlight did. There was no news at this year’s WWDC, so for now we must find something else.

The Initiative

My friend Bill and I have been working on a podcast about learning iOS development, and it’s finally here. We recorded several episodes before we figured out enough of the recording and hosting process to release anything, so there’s already a decent backlog. New episodes should continue to come out every Friday.

Check it out at The Initiative.
