Crashlytics gives mobile app developers insight into their apps’ performance, so you can pinpoint and fix issues quickly and easily. In addition to the main Crashlytics product, we’ve also offered Crashlytics Enterprise, which we introduced for those who wanted even more robust reporting and workflow integration, among other features.
Now all developers can have the best tools to identify and fix issues — we’re folding the features of Crashlytics Enterprise into Crashlytics. The enterprise features will be available to all – for free.
With Crashlytics Enterprise, there are no usage costs, fees, or limits when it comes to your app’s performance monitoring. The features and usage we used to charge for based on limits are now unlimited across the board. This means that you no longer need to worry about numbers like monthly active users, disk space or API limits. And since Crashlytics Enterprise has no limits, you can add as many apps and developer seats as your team needs.
In the future, all new Crashlytics accounts will be automatically upgraded to the unlimited, free version of the product; existing users have already been transitioned. And the capabilities of Crashlytics Enterprise don’t stop here. Working with Twitter, we’ll continue to develop new features even faster.

What an incredible journey this past year has been — today, we’re excited to announce: we’re merging with Twitter to take our platform to an entirely new level!
We started Crashlytics a little over a year ago to address a huge hole in mobile app development. With hundreds of millions of devices in use around the world, it was impossible for developers to fully test every edge-case and catch every bug before release. Even worse, when problems did crop up, it was often difficult and complicated to find the root cause. App developers were stuck with little insight into what happened and forced to rely on vague end-user feedback to diagnose problems.
We built Crashlytics to deliver the world’s most powerful and lightest-weight crash reporting solution. With us, developers gain instant visibility into the precise line of code that caused a crash, enabling them to more easily fix issues. Since our iOS launch, we’ve had the privilege of working with thousands of incredible app developers, from those building independent passion-projects to many of the top iOS apps available today – Twitter, Vine, Yelp, Kayak, TaskRabbit, and Waze, to name just a few.

Our Mac App
With today’s announcement, much will remain the same. Development of Crashlytics will continue unabated and we remain dedicated to working with all of our customers – current and new, big and small – to deliver the key app performance insights they need.
Going forward, we’re thrilled to work with the incredible team at Twitter. We share a passion for innovating on mobile and building world-class applications. Joining forces will accelerate our build-out, allowing us to leverage Twitter’s infrastructure to deliver new features faster than ever.
On a more personal note, it’s an honor to work with the entire Crashlytics team – the best group we’ve ever been a part of – and we couldn’t be more excited to continue doing so.

Highlights from the Twitterverse:
We’re thrilled to announce Crashlytics Integrations — seamlessly send your Crashlytics issues to your favorite issue tracker!
Crashlytics Intelligence + Workflow you already use = Productivity Win
With Crashlytics Integrations, you get all of the power of our industry-leading crash analysis platform seamlessly integrated into the issue tracking tools you already have, enabling a single-glance view at your outstanding issues. When it’s time to debug, simply jump directly from your issue tracker to the Crashlytics dashboard to get a deep dive into the data.
You’re in control
We care about signal-to-noise ratio — we made sure to build an easy to use control panel so that you’re in full control over when you receive issue updates. By default, we only send along an issue when it reaches Impact Level 2 or higher. However, you can change this to be as verbose as you want.
We’re launching Integrations with five of the most-requested offerings. They are:
- JIRA 5
- Pivotal Tracker
- Web Hooks
You may be familiar with the first four. The fifth, Web Hooks, is a unique integration that you can use to connect Crashlytics with whatever kind of system you want. We’ll simply POST information to a URL of your choosing, in JSON format. This is great for triggering custom events inside your own development infrastructure or behind your firewall!
Your options don’t stop there. Faced with the endless array of third-party bug trackers and project management tools available today, it wouldn’t make sense to artificially limit what you can use!
We’re excited to announce that, starting today, we have open-sourced our Integrations implementation so that you can build your own experience and ensure Crashlytics fits seamlessly into your development workflow, whatever it may be. Head on over to GitHub and fork crashlytics-services to get started. We’re looking forward to rolling out the best contributions for everyone to benefit from!
Our goal is to make Crashlytics Integrations as useful as possible for you and leverage the incredible infrastructure we’ve built along with the tools you use everyday to make finding and fixing issues in your apps painless.
We’re just getting started, and we’d love to hear feedback on how we can make this even better for you. Shoot us an email through Support — as you know, we read each and every email that comes through.

TL;DR – View our WWDC Party 2012 Photos. Read below to see how it came together!
Apple’s WWDC is one of the few events that draws in developers from all over the world, including many of our customers. We care deeply about our developers and wanted to celebrate with them, especially since we were going to be there attending the conference as well. It was Crashlytics’ first event and opportunity to meet people in the ecosystem. It had to be amazing.
At first, we evaluated the terrace at the St. Regis. The space was great, but then we saw the W Hotel. While not inexpensive by any means, we felt the W Hotel brand better represented our own at Crashlytics. Knowing this venue would contribute to a great experience, we booked it.
Designing the Space
With the venue booked, we had to decide on what the space would look like. How do we optimize the flow for people getting drinks? Should there be lounge seats? Should there be barstools? Where would the DJ go?
We thought a bit about this and arrived at the layout below.
With a circular bar in the center, manned by three bartenders, we wanted to guarantee attendees spent less time waiting for drinks and more time in conversations.
We also wanted to have tables for people that want to sit (those are the ones on the red carpet). For the people that wanted to stand, we provided six small lighted tables (those are the ones surrounding the bar).
For more ambiance, we set up three cabanas, complete with sofas and love seats.
We also had 14-foot tall red flags made (it’s true) and a red spotlight between the two flags, through a custom made Crashlytics light filter.
Finally, we thought it would be awesome if people had something to look at when they were ordering a drink or sitting down, so we got three tables with flat screens built into them (the circular bar also had two flat screens built into it as well). These doubled as demo stations – cords were available to plug into phones to demo apps!
The Endless Bar
At first, we were thinking about drink tickets. We even set up an easter egg on WWDC.net (hint: view source), where if you found one of our guys, you would get a drink.
However, we always loved going to places where the drinks were free. We wanted this to be an amazing experience so in the end we decided to cover drinks, all night, for everyone.
We also came up with a few signature cocktails that seemed fitting – the Keynote, the Jailbreak, and the NSCocktail. We had servers that had all three drinks coming around on platters all night, in case the bar was full. This also helped keep the bar from getting swarmed.
After we promoted the party (we made a site on WWDC.net), we received over 1300 RSVPs to join the party. The venue only held 300 people, so we quickly purchased drink tickets so that people who had to wait in line had the option of going to the W Bar downstairs and have a drink on us.
I could write a lot more, but a picture says a thousand words. We brought in a professional photographer and took many. Check out the event photos here.

The MITX Innovation Awards is a competition that celebrates the innovations powering the future of marketing and revolutionizing the way we work and play. We’re excited to announce that Crashlytics has won an award from MITX!
Specifically we received a PwC Promise Award. According to MITX, the PwC Promise awards are given start-up companies whose innovative technology solutions show promise to make a significant business impact. (SCVNGR was a previous winner.)
It has been an honor and a pleasure to have been considered a part of MITX. We had such a great time preparing and presenting to the judges, and just thrilled to have won an award.
The award plaques are on their way but in the mean time, they gave us MITX Shout cones. Below is our very own Rich Paret wielding the Shout cone.
Congratulations to all of the other finalists and award winners, it’s great to see so much innovation happening in Boston!
