Google Lights a "Fire" in the Mobile App Development Market

Posted on 10.21.2014

The creation of apps is a laborious and detailed process.

Not only must the graphics be pleasing to the eye but the app must also stay up-to-date whether that’s with top scores for gaming apps or recently published articles for news apps.

Firebase, a service that helps app developers create mobile and web apps that store and sync information in real-time, has been acquired by Google.

Through firebase, developers can build apps for multiple platforms using popular frameworks such as Ember.js, Node.js and Java. When developers are ready to deploy their app, whether it’s a Web or mobile app, they can do so directly through Firebase’s cloud.

The entire team from Firebase will be joining Google but will still be led by Firebase’s co-founders James Tamplin and Andrew Lee.

“By combining Firebase with Google Cloud Platform, we’ll be able to build the best end-to-end platform for mobile application development, said Greg DeMichillie, director of product management at Google, in a blog post. “If you’re already a Firebase developer, you’ll start seeing improvements right away and if you’re a Google Cloud Platform customer, you’ll find it even easier to create great mobile and web apps.”
