Pros: It allows you to create an inside app for your benefit and it introduces you on this procedures and new experience that provides you more knowledge regarding google functions and it's services.

Cons: The data you save in firebase can hardly be found at one try, when saving it on the platform it requires some inside procedures for the data to be found more easily. If the data doesn't complete the procedure it will hardly be found.

Pros: The automated reloading of the app when developing is great. You do not need advanced coding skills or a large dedication of time to create a professionally-looking app and it is good for creating cross-version mobile apps.

Cons: It is free during a trial period, afterwards you have to pay. also, the free plan allows only a low number of simultaneous connections, meaning you need to upgrade if you plan to use this for more than a hobby project.

Overall: We use it to quickly create mobile apps that we can be sure work well on the customer's device.

Excellent App, I recommend it for app developers.

Pros: The feature that I like most is the real-time database, which lets you update your web/mobile application instantly when you edit the database, it takes less than a second which is insane!. Also that you can use firebase across websites and mobile applications and the installation is simple and fast.

Cons: As they use NoSQL model, when data gets large sometimes things get messy to organize these data in a good hierarchy.

Pros: What I like the most about the firebase, that it is giving the analytics result that I really need. As a android developer It really helps me on the application that I develop. Like for example there cloud messaging it is really easy to use for sending push notification on my app users.

Cons: Well nothing in particular. But whats comes in my mind that I really dont like is the updates on the analytics. It is not really real time. It takes about 4 hours or even one day to get the actual results.

Overall: It gives me good analytic for our Applications

Pros: It is the best development in mobile platforms in the google cloud in the different platforms (Android, iOS, web), with a better alternative to save development time like xamrin. It also has its own ingredients to convince both locals and strangers from q I started firebase now I can access a web cervicio to have my application and work with data in the cloud and so I can save and synchronize data in the cloud in real time its development to allowed better apps and get an acceptable level of quality is what I like about this software.

Cons: To make more than 100 simultaneous connections you have to cancel an extra cost

you can not observe connected users in real time

It's only free for 15 days after you have to pay

Pros: The real time databases they offer. Easy to setup and they offer some extremely useful SDKs that will take care about a lot of things for you.

Pros: Firebase facilitates the growth and loyalty of users through various technologies, which allows users to send invitations by email or SMS and share the application directly with their contacts and provide the best experience on different platforms and motivate the user to Install the application if you still do not have it.

Cons: I like it because Firebase has a wide variety of services that help in the creation of applications in an agile way. If you want to do a custom analysis or combine the data with other sources, you can link the data from Analytics with BigQuery, this makes it possible to perform a more in-depth analysis, such as combining data sources and consulting large datasets

Overall: Other benefits such as Real-Time Databases that allow you to store and synchronize data in real time. Authentication that manages access to the entire infrastructure. Lodging that offers a static and safe accommodation for the application. Storage built for developers who need to store and serve content such as photos and videos generated by users. Cloud messaging that allows reliable delivery of messages and notifications at no cost.

For example, I develop one project and everything that is needed for it is stored in one place. It is very convenient when there is an opportunity of integration with hosting, servers.

Cons: Very inconveniently organized options for sending messages to e-mail. Another drawback is the difficulty of accessing the database via the Mac.

Overall: it allows me to develop in real time. It is really efficient in terms of network management and has good support, it can be easily used in your web, android and IOS project. On the web, there is support for frameworks such as angular and polymer.

Cons: It is a perfect tool for enthusiasts and beginners in the creation of apps, but it is limited in terms of technological reach. You can develop very creative and efficient apps that will help you solve daily problems or improve processes related to your daily activities.

Overall: It is the best engine to develop applications of low, medium and high complexity, aimed at enthusiasts in the creation of modern, practical and functional apps.

Pros: The best parts about Firebase have to be the super efficient, javascript friendly realtime-database and the Firebase auth.The hosting is good, although there are better options like Amazon's S3 and Bitballoon by Netlify (if your site is completely static).

Cons: Firebase could improve it's nomenclature system with it's functions as this can be a daunting task for a first time user.However, using third-party modules like the "axios" node module simplifies this to a great degree.

Overall: It has tremendously helped me cut down deployment time as I no longer have to an in-house server and configure it and deal with the nitty-gritty of DBs and OAuth.

Pros: *it is not necessary to have a lot of knowledge in database
*allows your development team to focus on more important issues such as user experience
*the fact of having a multiplatform library is very important, in this way we can use the same logic of the code in each language of programming

Cons: *in the free version you can only have a maximum of 10 simultaneous connections
*the databases are not complex, which affects those who have in mind to build a giant project

Pros: There are a lot of players in the Platform As a Service(PAAS) sector. Firebase beats almost all of them with a good margin. I used the "Spark Plan" to host a static website. In addition to 5GBs of storage, I got a custom domain and a free SSL certificate. The process is as easy as it gets, it takes just a set of commands on the Firebase CLI and your project is live and running. My teammates also use it to host Android apps and speak highly of utilities like Crashlytics. From creating pet projects to highly scalable products, it does it all!

Cons: The only thing which worries me is the pricing. It gets pretty steep once your app gains traction and you decide to scale. Nevertheless, its used by top companies and IT giants.

Pros: Firebase is very useful and functional for developers at an affordable, very low cost. Firebase is synchronised with Google's Cloud Platform allowing users to easily connect their projects.

Cons: Firebase is a very difficult challenge for new users as it is not as simple as it could be. For example, push notifications via Firebase is very difficult without the help of third-party softwares such as OneSignal

Cons: Firebase provides web services, the biggest challenge that is present in Firebase is the fast loading of applications, which still has a certain lethargy.

Using firebase, I was able to create a server less react app without much difficulty .

Pros: Firebase is a very responsive. Uploaded data is pushed to client devices in real time, this saves a lot of time and resources.
Offline client devices are updated on uploaded data once they go back online.
Data is structured in a simple understandable manner.
The free version of the software is as good as premium versions.

Cons: In data structures, the developer cannot nest data in more than 4 levels without running into multiple issues on retrieving the data.
There are limitations on number of simultaneous connections when it comes to the free version.
For the free version there are also limitations on making external queries, hence filtering the data from the server side becomes an issue.

Overall: This is the best software for all developers be it mobile, web or desktop based applications. Its is very easy to use and understand and it outputs the best results. This is best software to use when it comes to back-end development. I would highly recommend it to all developers.

Pros: Firebase is a really amazing product for software developers. It helps me save a lot of time.
If we want to develop a new website or mobile application. It is so convenient and time-saving to use Firebase as the database service support. The API of Firebase is easy to use and supports every platform and programming languages like PHP, Java, Swift. The document of Firebase supports various languages and very concise.
I love the authentication API support of Firebase mostly. Because of the authentication API of Firebase, I can get rid of writing similar authentication code every time when I start a new project.

Cons: Cloud Firestore is a new database service that Firebase provides. I test it several times and it is still a little unstable, especially when it came across a large number of requests. But there are many good features. I hope Firebase can publish a stable version of this new database server as soon as possible.

Pros: Firebase's toolset is very complete, scaling costs are so affordable and it's an excellent tool to test and deploy small developments for free. The platform is intuitive and clean. Program documentation is good. Is easy to integrate with any languages and frameworks.

Cons: Material style sometimes is a little confusing to use. I don't like default scrollbars in the console.

Overall: I have free hosting for small projects

I find it hard to understand some stuff here ...

Pros: Nice User Interface and nice features overall. Free version is enough to test and try the software so you can understand if it is want you need.

Cons: I needed to read a tutorial to understand where to start on this software, creating my first database took me 10 minutes and in the end it wasn't working properly.

Overall: Hard to use!

Pros: The authentication section has been the most useful. It lets you create users easily from your application without the need of managing it in your own server. It can be by email, phone, id, google, facebook, GitHub or twitter. Also, functions are pretty awesome you can easily create simple functions to be executed on a web server with very little hassle.

Cons: I can´t really find something bad per se. But I could say that I had to read a lot to get around it. It is not 100% intuitive.

Overall: I can set up database and logins very easily for my application

Firebase Helped me focus on the business logic of my application without worrying about scalability

Pros: Firebase provides simplified API's for all of its services and the same API's are conveniently available on a variety of platforms. This helped me release my App on different platforms rather conveniently.

Pros: Takes away the hassle to create a backend, real time database ready, cloud functions and authentication ready

Cons: I wish the documentation was a bit better, with some more examples on building basic apps. There were some times, the docs loop within some pages. Overall, a great product though.

Overall: Ease of use, scalable, real-time database with built in functions made us setup a basic model in very less time

Pros: Since we're a small company and we have only front-end developers, a solution like Firebase helps us increase our productivity. We created our first product and we're using Firebase's own login solution and dynamic database, even in the free plan.

Cons: We had a problem when they updated to version 2 and we had to review all of our code in order to make it work with the new database and project structure.

Pros: Android Studio integration is great - it allows to quickly set up Firebase in a project. Online interface is nice and clear and allows to customize views.

Cons: In every project I use it in similar way and need to write my own helpers/proxies to use it consistently across all projects. It'd be nice to have some default helpers out of the box to upload data in a standarized way.

Pros: When I started my App Development project, I stumbled upon Firebase and was blown away. They integrate so much with a painless integration. I will be using Firebase for all of my future projects

Cons: The only Cons I can see are the general level of knowledge you need to already know before jumping into Firebase. However, anyone looking to develope a mobile application need that level of knowledge.

very nice!

Pros: I love the speed, direction and ease of use with Firebase. Now that cloud functions integrate tightly and together with learning Angular I am able to build full-featured apps in SO MUCH LESS time. I even build apps just for my family because it's fast and fun. It has taken me from being a front-end developer to a full-stack developer in all reality.

I love the integrated nature with hosting, deploying, storage, account management and cloud functions. I have a large web application that is headed to beta soon and the whole app front-end, backend etc... (except Elastic Search) is in one project and one place.

Cons: It would be great if email notifications were baked in. I Also would like to customize reset password email templates more. It would be great as well if there were a full-featured mac/pc client to access the database. Lastly some sort of tightly backed in search indexing (preferably based on elastic search) would be great, although this is not hard to do with Searchly and a quick indexing cloud function.

Overall: I love firebase because it enabled me to quickly feel like I am a full-stack developer. I've made multiple full-featured applications because I had firebase.

Firebase helps us spin-up high quality backends for our basic web apps.

Pros: Love the new revamp that Google gave to Firebase, it works seamlessly with GCP and mostly all the tech in the Google product offering.

Cons: Seems like there are limitations when it comes to working with large amounts of highly structured data because of the no-SQL database. While personally I think this is a step in the right direction, it may prove to be a limitation to some.

Pros: Being a pre-req for setting up an android app for us (we decided not to initially use crashlytics) this was a great choice for prepping android builds

Cons: Admin access has been a bit of a drawback. Specifically when trying to assign developers to builds and to deploy we spent unnecessary times in the amount of admin privileges being assigned.
