Google acquires FlexyCore to make Android faster

Google has acquired French start-up FlexyCore for a reported price of €16.9 million. FlexyCore is known for boosting the performance of Android via its DroidBooster app.

The app has already been removed from Google Play Store as Google may has started integrating it with the operating system so even those who were not aware of this app till date will be able to benefit from it.

We are looking for aspiring bloggers and journalists for The Mukt. If you are interested, apply now!

Confirming the purchase Google said in a statement, “The FlexyCore team has strong expertise in building software to optimize Android device performance, and we think they’d be a great fit with our team.”
