Codemagic turns 4

Another year around the sun has passed, and Codemagic has already turned FOUR years old! Who remembers our launch in December 2018 at Flutter Live?! It feels like yesterday! We started out as a Flutter-specific CI/CD and then added support for other platforms, such as React Native, native iOS, native Android, Cordova, and Ionic. This year, we started supporting Unity CI/CD. We’re learning and growing year by year together with the community!


The Evolution of the Testing Model and Where It Will Go Next

When testing debuted in the software development world, it was quickly relegated to a position at the end of the long and expensive waterfall cycle.

Publish to App Store Connect with Codemagic's Apple Developer Portal integration

Last year, we introduced an easier way of distributing your app to users via the App Store.

This feature automated your iOS releases from start to finish and pushed the CI-verified builds straight to the App Store. We are excited to announce that we have simplified this process even further! Now, you can directly reference the API key and authenticate with App Store Connect!
