Back in April during the F8 Facebook's Developer Conference, Facebook announced a new venture called 'FbStart.' This free service was created in response to a lot of developers expressing that they wanted to take their mobile apps to the next level.

With the service, Facebook is offering a helping hand to startups, entrepreneurs and developers that could use a boost with launching or refining an app. Signup is totally free, but FbStart's partnership with companies like Adobe, Survey Monkey, Hootsuite and Mailchimp offers access to tools and services like Adobe Creative Cloud, tracking tools, as well as email and social media marketing platforms. With all of these great resources and more, FbStart's tool package is valued at about $30,000.

Facebook describes that "The more successful mobile apps are out there, the better it is for the entire ecosystem."
