Mobile Platforms Turn to Cloud Services with StackMob
There are hundreds of cloud startups popping up on the radar, but one that made recent headlines in an eWeek post was a new cloud service for mobile platforms called StackMob. StackMob allows developers to create mobile businesses with easy building, full-featured applications and easily deployed apps through their cloud service mobile platform. With StackMob’s front-end HTML5 and back-end services, the time for developers to create effective, high-quality mobile applications is cut in half.
More Than Just a Cloud Storage Provider
StackMob prides itself on being more than just a cloud storage provider. Since StackMob is 100 percent free, users are able to store their applications, analytics and integrate with their APIs and custom codes to create effective mobile applications that are built in half the time. What sets StackMob apart from other cloud storage providers for mobile applications is the fact that StackMob uses an all-in-one storage approach. While some mobile platforms allow developers to store only HTML and APIs in their cloud, StackMob’s cloud service allows users to store everything required to develop their application. Without the need for back and forth storage, users can cut their time significantly. In fact, StackMob representatives state that development time is cut from months to weeks.
Robust, End-to-End Platform
Everything a developer needs is stored in the cloud storage provided by StackMob.
This can include tools such as:
Analytics – Provide developers insight on who their power users are and what drives traffic to their mobile applications.
Social Integration – Allows users to integrate social media with their mobile applications in one quick step.
App Management – Gives users the ability to manage their applications from one easy application rather than multiple applications.
API Creation – Allows users to create their mobile applications instantly by creating an API through the StackMob cloud storage and accessing the data at any time during the development.
StackMob customers are remarking on how fast this cloud service makes the entire process. Users can develop iPhone and Android applications in as little as a few days depending on the difficulty of the application itself. StackMob markets itself to customers who are on limited budgets when it comes to time and monetary resources. Small business and freelance developers can still create effective mobile applications with limited resources and without utilizing hours of manpower to do so – all while still creating an effective, engaging mobile application.
