Alternatives to buddybuild

Feb 1, 2018 · 1 min read

In last January 2018, mobile continuous integration service buddybuild was acquired by Apple. It have been used by me for more than one build projects. Buddybuild has a easy setup just adding mobile projects.

I was using buddybuild’s free service plan, which allowed for a single build at a time. Unfortunately, as part of the acquisition, buddybuild will be shutting down the free service plan on March 1st 2018, so I have to go looking for a new continuous integration system.

From Buddyuild

The buddybuild service will remain available to existing customers to build, test, and ship iOS apps to testers through

As of today, we are no longer accepting new customers. Existing Free Starter plans and Android app development will be discontinued on March 1, 2018.

If you have questions about an existing account, please contact us at:


So, I have looking around alternate tools for continous integration.

*Here are list of tools:

1. Visual Studio App Center
2. Bitrise
3. BuildKite
4. CircleCI
5. GitLab CI
6. Jenkins
7. Fastlane


  1. Travis CI
  2. Nevercode
  3. Buddy
  4. Buildozer

Hopes this list will help the developers like me. If you find a new tool, please comment it and I will add it to the list.
