Parse vs StackMob: What are the differences?

Developers describe Parse as "The complete mobile app platform". With Parse, you can add a scalable and powerful backend in minutes and launch a full-featured app in record time without ever worrying about server management. We offer push notifications, social integration, data storage, and the ability to add rich custom logic to your app’s backend with Cloud Code. On the other hand, StackMob is detailed as "Build, Deploy and Grow your mobile applications". StackMob is the most robust & flexible end-to-end platform on the market. StackMob lowers the barriers to application development, letting developers focus on creating powerful apps with quality user experiences.

Parse and StackMob can be primarily classified as "Mobile Backend" tools.

Some of the features offered by Parse are:

  • Store basic data types, locations, photos
  • Update over the air
  • Data browser lets you manage, search, and update content without writing a single line of code

On the other hand, StackMob provides the following key features:
