Summary: Mobile developers can use Ragic as the server backend of their apps. Ragic provides a simple HTTP API for every form you created on Ragic!
Most mobile apps need a server backend for it to be useful. Or all of your app would be running on isolated islands, not being able to receive real-time updates, or interact with any other users of the app.
Developers love building apps, but building a server backend is just a simple but boring job at first glance. However, when you begin to really design and use your server backend, you begin to find that there’s a ton of features that you need to add on your server to make the app useful and manageable. You’ll be constantly adding new fields to feed your app, new ways to enter and search backend database, writing more and more complicated authentication and access control to your backend application……and for all of this you’ll probably need to create a nice UI interface for people to use in the long term.
