Bangalore based Little Eye Labs said on it’s official website that they have been acquired by the social networking giant Facebook. Below is the full text mentioned on the official website of Little Eye Labs.
Today, we’re very excited to announce that Facebook is acquiring our company. With this acquisition, Little Eye Labs will join forces with Facebook to take its mobile development to the next level! This is Facebook’s first acquisition of an Indian company, and we are happy to become part of such an incredible team.
Little Eye Labs was founded about a year ago by a bunch of program analysis geeks who wanted to build better tools for Mobile developers and were later backed by GSF andVenturEast Tenet Fund. We released our official version of Little Eye for Android in early April of this year, and since then we have had many Android developers and testers using Little Eye Labs to measure, analyze, and optimize their app’s performance. We’re thankful for the opportunity we’ve had to make an impact in the development of some of the best apps out there.
The entire Little Eye Labs team will move to Facebook’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California. From there, we’ll be able to leverage Facebook’s world-class infrastructure and help improve performance of their already awesome apps. For us, this is an opportunity to make an impact on the more than 1 billion people who use Facebook.
Of course, we want to make sure we treat our customers well even as we make this transition. Current customers of Little Eye will receive further information on plans to offer a free version of Little Eye until June 30, 2014. More information can be found on the Downloads page.
This has been a fun and exciting journey. We’re eager to be working alongside the incredible team at Facebook, and together, we’ll continue on our mission of building awesome analysis tools to aide in the development of brilliant apps.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our wonderful customers for their support, our investors for believing in us (Sateesh Andra from VenturEast, Rajesh Sawhney and all theGSF super angels), our advisors for guiding us (thanks Jaideep Mirchandani, Brij Bhasin and all the GSF mentors), YourStory for our first break (thanks Shradha), the awesome BlrDroidcommunity and its organizers (thanks Amrit Sanjeev, Soham Mondal, Badrinath Kulkarni,Pranay Airan & Aravind Krishnaswamy), the helpful folks at Droidcon (Zainab & Kiran), the extremely supportive Londroid organizers (Carl-Gustaf Harroch & Kevin McDonagh), the folks @ Google for giving us our big break with Google I/O and our many many well-wishers and friends.
