uTest acquires Apphance

Today the companies uTest and apphance consolidate their services for mobile app testing. See some quotes from the techcrunch article:

“uTest will also be using Apphance itself for its own 60,000-strong army of app testers, as well as adding functionality for it to support HTML5, on top of existing support for iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7, Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble’s Nook.”

“This acquisition is a giant step forward in the growth of uTest,” Doron Reuveni, CEO of uTest, said in a statement. “By adding Apphance to our in-the-wild testing services, we’ve dramatically increased our value to customers and extended our position as an all-in-one testing solution for mobile developers around the world.”

If you check the website from apphance you already see the integration to uTest. The really cool thing is, the service is complete free for the rest of the year 2012! Go and try it!
