Now that it managed to collect such a large amount of money from the funding it intends to launch a complete public service.
The seed round was officially closed and Buddy announced that they have raised one million dollars. The sum is truly impressive and the company will invest it thoughtfully to improve its features and create new options to satisfy its clients’ requests.

It still managed to gather a big number of developers and fans, more than 6,000 and just as many applications were created through its use. It was almost instantly supported by the developers community because it of its functionality. Everyone with the necessary skills was able to build an application on so many platforms, from SmartTV to Android, Windows Phone and more recently Windows 8.

David McLauchlan, the CEO of the company said that they are very happy they have been able to make this official launch of this new stunning platform that offers users enhanced functionality. He also stated that Buddy makes it possible for all brands and agencies to access the best possible application for their contextual analytics.
