Visual Studio Mobile Center Adds CodePush Capabilities

by Developer.com Staff

The tool will simplify app updates for mobile development firms.

Visual Studio Mobile Center, Microsoft's hub for mobile development, now includes CodePush, a solution for distributing app updates. "About two years ago, a group of developers at Microsoft crafted a service for distributing Apache Cordova, React Native, and Windows Mobile updates to applications in the wild. They called it ‘CodePush.’" Microsoft's Ian Geoghegan explained in a blog post. "Since then, mobile app developers have deployed thousands of releases to in-production apps – deploying quick bug fixes, feature improvements and content updates via the cloud. In a world where updates submitted through the app store can sometimes take days, these developers have enjoyed a huge market advantage because they can respond to customer feedback more quickly with instant app updates to some or all of their end-users."

CodePush will be integrated into the Mobile Center dashboard. In the future, Microsoft plans to integrate CodePush into its crash service and bundle signing.
