While Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and most recently Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) with its acquisition of WhatsApp fight each other as they move to acquire companies valued in the billions, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is continuing its pursuit of smaller companies that don’t quite make the news that larger acquisitions do.

Specifics of the Apple, Burstly deal

The deal, first reported by TechCrunch, was confirmed today by Apple spokesperson Kristin Huguet in an email to MacWorld where she wrote, “ Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

Whether Huguet wishes to discuss it or not, Burstly acquired TestFlight in 2011, and it remains one of the best platforms for iOS developers to quickly and easily download and install beta builds on their iOS devices.

Long viewed as something that  Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) should have been offering developers themselves for some time, the Cupertino, CA-based Apple finally pulled the trigger on the acquisition for an undisclosed amount of money.
