Raygun, a popular error reporting service for web and mobile developers, smashed through one billion errors processed on behalf of their customer base. A momentous event - meaning the service’s 6,500+ users now have healthier software, thanks to being notified by Raygun in real time of crashes and bugs affecting their end users.
Mindscape, the company behind Raygun, released the error reporting service in early 2013 with the aim of improving software quality, creating the best error tracking tool for every developer – regardless of which programming language or platform they work with. Since its release the product has grown at a rapid rate - delighting developers all over the world and blasting software bugs in all sorts of applications.
Existing customers include the likes of Xamarin, Microsoft, Beats Music, ABC, Fool.com plus hundreds more.
“Sadly, it's expected that software crashes a lot”, explains Mindscape Co-Founder and CEO John Daniel Trask.
“Thankfully, that's becoming less of an issue for our customers who have resolved the underlying issues behind more than a billion crashes! It's exciting knowing that Raygun has directly helped them improve their software, keep users and deliver superior experiences - all while saving substantial developer time trying to track down what went wrong.”
The news comes just a few months after Mindscape raised $1.4M in a new investment round led by New Zealand investors including Lance Wiggs’ Punakaiki Fund, industry commentator Ben Kepes, TradeMe’s Mike O’Donnell amongst others to support further growth.
