We are proud to have a great success story like instabug on our lineup of hiring partners. Instabug was the second Egyptian company ever to join YC, their app is now running on around 800 million iOS and android devices!

Following our initiative to present our hiring partners for FireUp March 2017 as we mentioned here, we are sharing our interview with them.

It all started with a Shake !

We asked them about how it all started!

We started in 2012 with another idea that developed to the instabug everyone knows today. It was basically an app that connects beta testers to apps that need testing. The idea did not recieve a lot of praise, but what was interesting to most people we talked to was the way we handled the communication between app developers and testers, with our famous “shake” to report a bug gesture. We built on the feedback, and used this comunication gesture to build our very first version of instabug, May 2013. We developed the product a lot since then, with this early protoype just being one of many features in the platform running today.


Our vision is simple, we want to be the leading helping tool for any mobile app developer.
