Chupamobile Gets Funding, Moves to London

Chupamobile, which provides a marketplace for buying and selling source code and components for app development, has received seed funding, supporting the opening of a headquarters in London.

“Why build an app from scratch,” says Pezzotti, “when there are already pre-tested, certified component you can source and buy at Chupamobile, leaving you to focus on developing the core value of your app? The market for mobile application development services is estimated to be reaching billions of dollars in the next coming years.”

The Chupamobile platform was launched in beta last October, and currently supports iOS, Android, and BlackBerry OS.
