Egyptian startup Instabug now serves over 25k clients
STARTUP WATCH- Instabug now serves 25k clients: Cairo-based startup Instabug is now serving over 25k clients — including PayPal, Buzzfeed, Samsung, Lyft, Soundcloud, and OnePlus, Co-Founder and CEO Omar Gabr wrote in a blog post that was also picked up by Menabytes. The bug reporting tool has been used to report 400 mn issues through upward of 2 bn devices running the company’s software development kit (SDK). Instabug, which began as a background tool for mobile app users to send feedback or report errors by shaking their phones, is evolving into a performance tracker for mobile app teams. The platform now allows the teams to “collect real-time contextual insights through their entire mobile app lifecycle,” says Menabytes.
The company was founded in 2013 by Gabr and Cairo University colleague Moataz Soliman. It was part of one of the first cycles of Flat6Labs and has raised over USD 2 mn in disclosed funding since then.
