Google launches Mobile Backend Starter for iOS
Being able to leverage the cloud as an app developer can often help to let you grow much faster, but it can also be expensive and difficult to set up. Not surprisingly, Google wants to make that easier by providing developers with Mobile Backend Starter, which aims to simplify server-side development. Mobile Backend Starter had only been available for Android, but now it is available for iOS developers as well.

As you might expect from Google, Mobile Backend Starter lets developers support hundreds of concurrent users for free, because it is a Google App Engine application. Mobile Backend Starter makes it easy for developers to store data in the cloud and share it between users, send device-to-device push notifications, use continuous queries to notify devices of data changes, and authenticate users using Google Accounts. 

Both the Android and iOS versions of the Mobile Backend Starter have the same set of features, and to do this, it will use the platform specific options for various functions. For example, it uses Google Cloud Messaging for Android and Apple Push Notification Service for iOS.
