Business description: Parse is the cloud app platform for iOS, Android, JavaScript, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, and OS X. 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. Parse allows your team to focus more on creating a great user experience and forget server maintenance and complex infrastructure. Instantly add push notifications, data storage, social integration, and more the moment you integrate a Parse SDK into your app. Parse handles everything you need to store data securely and efficiently in the cloud. Store basic data types, locations, photos, and query across all of them in just a few lines of code. Manage, search, filter, and update your content with our web based data browser. Connect your users via traditional logins or third party social networks, like Facebook and Twitter, with just a few lines of code. We take care of linking accounts across networks, resetting passwords, and keeping everything safe and secure so that you don’t have to. Parse simplifies the difficult task of adding real time push notifications to an application. Create, send, and target highly effective push notifications via the web-based push console, REST API, or client SDKs. With our millions and millions of notifications sent every day, you never have to worry about scaling. Parse always delivers. Say goodbye to servers and add rich, custom logic to your app’s backend with our aptly named Cloud Code. View your code with our Cloud Code Console and with Cloud Modules, integrate with virtually any third-party service like Twilio, MailGun, CrowdFlower, and more. Our native SDKs for iOS, Android, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, OS X, and JavaScript make it easy to create beautiful and powerful apps for all of your favorite devices. From desktop to mobile apps, Parse has an SDK for everyone.
