Global e-commerce and subscription management leader partners with DevMate to make a powerful, new platform for Mac OS X developers
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 26, 2015 — Global e-commerce and subscription management leader FastSpring (FastSpring.com) has partnered with MacPaw to announce the release of DevMate (DevMate.com), a dynamic new application development and distribution platform. The DevMate release has been in development between DevMate and FastSpring for over a year, and the result is a powerful new platform that offers Mac OS developers a solution that handles all of the difficult coding, and lets them focus on their products and users’ experience.
DevMate helps developers prime their applications for release, making it incredibly easy to set up product licensing, deliver updates to customers, get user feedback and collect crash reports. It gives both indie developers and established companies all the necessary tools for selling their applications outside the Mac App Store.
“After over a year of collaborative work on the DevMate platform, we’re excited to announce that DevMate has been released and is now available to all software vendors,” says FastSpring CEO Chris Lueck. “For FastSpring clients, DevMate is an indispensable tool that allows developers to take full advantage of distribution of Mac applications outside the Mac App Store.”
The platform takes hours of tedious code off developers’ hands. DevMate uses one single SDK which helps developers: integrate application licensing, create trial or demo versions of an application, improve product stability, beta test new versions, communicate with customers via feedback, and keep users up-to-date with the latest version of an application.
DevMate collects and aggregates data from the application to build extensive reports on: application usage, revenue and sales data, customer statistics, crash reports, and more. This information gives developers a quick and complete overview of how their application is performing, and helps them increase the value of their business.
FastSpring complements DevMate by providing an e-commerce solution to developers for selling applications. This integration makes DevMate an essential solution for all FastSpring clients who are looking for a complete platform to develop, manage, and distribute applications outside the Mac App Store.
