Pros: Firebase has 3 plans, there is a free plan which is the Spark Plan, a Flame Plan which has a fixed fee and a Blaze Plan which is a pay as you use. Firebase is an online database facility, it helps to lower the costs of operating an mobile application or a website. It also provides database functions, such as push notifications which would require an experienced coder. It is easy to use if you have basic coding skills. There are free online Firebase tutorials on how to use it and integrate it into your application. It also provides analytics facility which produces statistics on the data you produce, how it is accessed, device locations and models. This aids in knowing target audiences. Also authentication functions are used, this helps in signup, login and also other login functions such as Facebook, Twitter and Google.

Cons: Coding skills such as Java, JavaScript, Kotlin and even Python are required. The Blaze Plan can run up costs if coder fails to efficiently produce programming codes that resend requests to Firebase database. Example is retrieving data such as username multiple times, which should have been done only once.

Tutorials provides basic information. You might need to go to other sources to find solutions to coding problems. This places are Google Books on Firebase, YouTube, GitHub, online forums and freelance coder websites.

Overall: Firebase has helped me to develop my mobile applications at a very cheap price. Sometimes I hardly pay a cent. I do not need to have a server, create a database, get a domain, air-conditioning for servers, physical space and hire an IT expert to maintain these components. Firebase does all these things for free.

Also I get information on the demographics of my users, their locations, amount of time they spend doing an activity and the time they spend on my mobile applications. I can now know what needs adjusting and whats working completely find.

I also get crash reports and also push notifications.

Pros: In my experience as a self-taught Android and web developer, I have started using Firebase as a cloud backend for my projects. It is a versatile tool for lots of different problems you might encounter by developing a product. For my projects, Firebase always had the tools I needed in order to create what I imagined - everything from (Google-)logins, to databases, notification management and crash reporting. And in all these cases Firebase just worked! The few times I had to face errors, I was able to resolve problems easily and quickly by using the Firebase documentation or online communities. The incredible userbase Firebase offers also makes it very easy to find tutorials, help or other advice online.

Furthermore, the platform support of Firebase is very good, it supports Android, iOS and the Web and additionally offers C++ and Unity in some cases.

The prices of the Firebase tools are also very reasonable, most of them start for free and if used heavily they scale perfectly - in my opinion nobody should be disappointed by them.

Cons: Actually, there are no upsetting cons I went through in the time I have used Firebase. The Android Studio help dialogue is sometimes outdated which forced me to use the website for code examples. Additionally, I sometimes experienced a problem regarding the database syncing on Android devices, which cloud by solved by switching to the improved Cloud Firestore database.

Overall: To sum up, Firebase is a great and simple tool for complex cloud backends. Especially the ease of use, the fact that the basic rate is free and the platform support is strong makes Firebase a no-brainer for simple or even more complex projects.

Firebase literally changed me from a designer/frontend developer to a full-app developer.

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.

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: It has realtime database, cloud storage, different type of authentication, ML kit and hosting. Among those i used realtime database, storage and authentication for my Mobile Application. They are easy to use. just in couple of line of codes the cloud database can be easily created. Even i used their hosting service to host one of my website, to host ur website u dont have to copy or paste ur code anywhere else just by using your command prompt or terminal you can deploy your code in Firebase and instantly your site will be online. You can deploy a new version of your code, even if u want to go to previous version of the website its just a click away.

Cons: Even though the it has great features and easy to use functionality the pricing of the platform is very high. And it not suitable a common person it was fully dedicated to be used by a developer.

Excellent cheap/free backend with extensive documentation and a large developer community.

Pros: Their free plan is amazing for people like me without much capital to start with and with the newest database they've add called firestore this backend is all you could hope for.

When you run into trouble you don't really need to worry since they have great documentation and guides for basically every platform they support. If you can't find help on their website then head over to stack overflow where almost every issue under the sun in already on the site.

Cons: Some search queries are a pain to code due to the limitations of firebase. Even with the addition of firestore its still a problem but it can be somewhat worked around.

Overall: After parse closed down I had to setup my own server to run my backend but with firebase and firestore I can rid myself of running a complicated server and just rely on firebase for a fraction of the cost.

Pros: With Firebase I can create really functional and excellent quality apps, without having to worry about managing the infrastructure. Google provides complementary products that greatly facilitate the creation of apps oriented to any type of business or need. It allows me to progressively incorporate new functionalities to improve the efficiency of my apps. It allows me to incorporate a very practical chat tool.

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. Google incorporates a series of already developed add-ons that allow you to create functional infrastructures that help you solve situations and problems related to your daily situations

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: It should be noted that everything about Google is really good, I love it or it's really good for me, the results have always been the best at all times.

I like that obviously it is not something very simple to do but in everything it can be understood easily, it is one of the best tools that I have been able to know for the creation of applications in a good and safe way.

Your options and tools I like also that you always have the help of Google support which always seek to resolve doubts and errors that may occur during the creation

Cons: I think everything has been good from my experience I really do not have to complain about this great platform. I could consider that sometimes there is not enough information that can be useful for those with little experience, likewise super recommended

Overall: Very good experience, with a lot of learning by looking for each day better results with such a good platform

Pros: Firebase is great if not the best database to use when developing android application. It easily can be connected with android studio where most android applications are developed. The JSON data type is used in Firebase and it works well in JavaScript full stack development. Any application requires real time data can use Firebase as the database for said application.

Cons: The main drawback is the any application that uses Firebase as their database needs an Internet connection to work as intended. And this is best suited for real time applications, if your are not developing such application this may not be the best choice for you.

Overall: I have used Firebase as my database for my android application I developed as my final project. This was really easy to learn and integrate to my development of the application.

Pros: We use Google FireBase for about 3 years. I think this is a great platform for working with databases. Most of all, we appreciate the opportunity to work not only from a computer, but also from a smartphone on any of the two platforms - Android or iOS.

Cons: After the last update, the application began to shut down frequently on an unplanned basis. This problem is observed only on Android smartphones. While working on the iPhone or iPad, there is no such problem.

Pros: I've used Firebase to few of my projects. Sometimes as a Realtime database. Sometimes as an authentication service. And sometimes as a hosting platform. Each functionality works exceptionally well. As there are guides and tutorials I was able to integrate those services without hassle.

Cons: When I started using Firebase it was bit hard to learn. Because even though there are many number of tutorials out there, as firebase was growing so fast they became old. So, they might not work with current versions.

Overall: I've hosted few of my sites in Firebase. And used Firebase NoSQL realtime database as a database for couple of my projects.

Pros: It is fast and does not require a complex structure, it helps us make intelligent decisions based on data. Most of its functions are free to use, as well as the support offered by email to developers. With this platform, push notifications are programmed and sent to the users of the applications, which is useful to keep them up to date with the latest news and not to forget about it.

Cons: What I do not like about this software is that in its free version it only allows 100 simultaneous connections. It only offers 90% of the conditions to develop a mobile application. Some functions are not available in analytics. In its free version only allows testing 15 devices per day.

Overall: It is ideal for small projects, offers ease of storage and allows you to create databases in minutes. Its storage provides the ability to save and recover the files generated by the user such as photos, videos and audios, without the need to use server code. Storage spaces are easy to scale and guarantee security for those who write and read them.

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: I could not develop without Firebase. It has every single feature for mobile development you could ever want. I have multiple projects with data, storage, FCM, analytics, etc. I was using Firebase before it was bought my Google and it has only gotten 10x better.

Cons: Firebase continues to change the layout and design of their console when they add new features. Its a catch 22, but can occasionally be annoying.

Overall: Best resource for mobile developers ever created.

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.

Pros: After Google acquired it, it just get better. The database server got better and added tons of features and even other part of the services got way better like cloud messaging, analytic, auth functionality, crash reporting and admob integration.

They provide good library for different platform and usually updated and with examples.

Cons: The learning curve when you come from traditional software stack is pretty high, the documentation on the site doesn't help with this problem too.

Most of the stuff you'll learn in the database side can't be applied to other software and it's still lacking custom backend integration.

Overall: It's a great service to have for any mobile app, the crashlytics itself is a good to have when deploying a mobile app.

Pros: My favorite thing about the Firebase is the Test Lab. I loved being able to run all kinds of scenarios to make sure my app's code functions correctly on all types of devices. I also like how I can weed out the possible crashes before they happen.

Cons: Honestly it is hard to find something I don't like about Firebase that's not superficial. The only thing I could say is that I didn't like how features were recently rebranded. I kept trying to search for a feature I had previously used and was not able to find it because it was rebranded

Overall: With Firebase I am able to thoroughly test my apps before release and use their tools after release to help solve bugs and crashes that users are reporting in real time.

Pros: I appreciate the huge support resource and tutorials available on the internet for this platform on websites like Udemy ,youtube etc ensuring I am always learning of newer ways to maximize this platform. I also love the level of documentation with its sdk programs.

It provides me with real time analytics such as crash reports, app install notifications etc

Lastly , Google Firebase is cloud based,ensuring I am able to access it from anywhere and anytime.

Cons: I am unable to migrate my sql database files into Firebase ,without having to alter their format since Firebase uses JSON.

Pros: It's very easy to use, You don't need to build a backend server at all. Firebase will do everything for you. Just focus on necessary: your front-end application.

Cons: User management API is very poor. You can't manage users by your application. Also, the worst of all, when you need to deploy backend functions, you need to use Google Cloud Functions, and They have a lot of problems and bugs.

Overall: We used to like firebase very much on our company. Until we had some issues with Google Cloud Functions when our application started beeing more larger. On this step, we choose to get out of firebase. I suggest use firebase only in small applications.

Pros: When creating small mobile applications, we use the Google Firebase service. All data (program code, additional files) is stored on Google's servers. The tool allows you to run a mobile back-end without server management.

Cons: The Google Firebase service handles a very limited number of requests. There is no possibility of integration using the API with other cloud services. You can not edit the mobile application offline.

Pros: With this system, I almost completely automated marketing for our mobile applications. Using this and several useful services, I can work 3-4 hours a day, and do not really strain at it. It is practical and very convenient.

Cons: The possibilities of a free package very quickly starts to be missed. We have to expand the possibilities, which increases the costs. Here you need to closely monitor the return on investment.

Pros: Like most Google applications, the customer support service is excellent, the attention they provide allows you to quickly solve any problem with this software, through functions such as error detection and testing that are now a long time in the development process. Of applications and the possibility of making a remote configuration of them definitely makes this software a success. Analytics and monetization are two essential terms for users and this app has tools that make these functions possible, it is definitely one of the best to create apps.

Cons: The free version of Google Firebase has enough limitations in terms of simultaneous connections, the execution of external consultations and even some searches however thanks to the constant updates made these problems could disappear soon. Due to these same updates many times the tutorials or procedures that can be consulted are outdated and this affects the most inexperienced users.

Overall: Since a year ago the developers of my company have used this software to make applications for our clients and the truth works very well, its functionalities work as shortcuts that save time and effort in the programming and design process, we have also used it to develop a code shared in real time for our team and the results have been wonderful, I recommend it.

Pros: I use Google's Firebase service to quickly create mobile apps. The tool will help test hypotheses and ideas in development, and all data is stored in the Cloud Firestore cloud storage. Available detailed analytics about the application, which allows to improve some points of the software. There is a useful tool for conducting A / B tests.

Cons: The main disadvantage of FireBase is that the entire Backend development is on third-party Google servers. In case of server failures, you will have to rewrite most of the application again.

Pros: I absolutely LOVE Firebase. The graphical interface is beautifully designed and makes managing collections of data and customization features easy. The documentation for Firebase and Cloud Firestore (the newest iteration of Firebase) is terrific and clear. I have used the software for many personal and professional projects, and its integration with modern web services like Node.js, React.js and others makes it a powerful tool for professionals and hobbyists alike. It allows you to have real-time functionality with a MongoDB-like collection structure, without the use of web sockets. You can write less code and get drastically better results.

Cons: There is very little I don't like about Firebase. Some of the deprecated features from previous releases were good, and it's unfortunate to have to make changes to some older code bases. Some other developers complain about the long method names (ie. onAuthStateChange) but this doesn't bother me at all. I prefer methods to be highly descriptive, as it makes working with the code easy.

Overall: Overall, all my uses of Firebase have been excellent and on top of that, fun! I can't say the same for other projects, where I've had to use much less intuitive and effective systems to build a similar result.

Pros: Firebase was easy to setup. The account setup was quick and frameworks for multiple languages are easy to include in your project.

We used Firebase for push notifications to web browsers and we got it off the ground in hours.

Firebase is fairly similar to the old GCM.

Cons: We would like to see a solution for push notifications that we can install within our corporate network as firewall rules are needed to make sure Firebase servers can reach clients inside the firewall. Google expects you to open your firewall to 49,000+ IP addresses rather than giving you a more specific domain name for your firewall rule.

Overall: We were able to quickly setup a robust push notification system for multiple types of clients.

Pros: I first used Firebase when I had to migrate off of Parse as a mobile back end for an iOS app. This was right when Google purchased Firebase so I'm not sure if the instructions were written by Google or by the previous developers, but the docs were quite nice. It's pretty simple to pick up and I believe it can scale quite a bit.

Cons: Like any Google product, you are always worried they will quickly abandon the product when they build or buy something else. Think of all the Google chat messaging apps! Hopefully it doesn't happen to Firebase as well.

Cons: In the free version has almost all functions, the tests in the cloud are limited 15 devices per day (5 physical and virtual others).

Cons: as against I could not say much since I'm starting to use the tool and I still have to explore, but what I find complicated is that if you have internet, you have nothing ... because it depends entirely on connection to it

The good thing about Firebase is that, you can actually deploy your system very fast (since you don't have to involve much for the backend) and the documentation in the website is sufficient for most of the cases. Besides, the documentation is easier to understand even you have zero knowledge in Firebase. the pricing is cheap for Flame plan and you can always scale up using the Blaze plan.

Cons: There are nothing I'm not happy with it. It basically saves my time to code for the backend.

Pros: For anyone new (or advanced) to the app-building world, go no further. Google Firebase provides you the ability to learn it all, host it all, share it all, and mess with it all- all in one place. And if you're already looped into the Google Suite of Products, it's simply the best.

Cons: The learning curve is steep. If you're just starting out, there is a world of tools that you'll need to learn. Expect that the learning curve will slow down any immediate projects you were hoping to accomplish. Even for advanced app builders, you'll need to learn how to navigate the interface. But it's worth it.

Overall: I was new to app building, and was able to learn how to do it!

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: - NoSQL structure

- Consistent API

- Instant frontend updates using subscription

Cons: - Moderate learning curve for SQL users

- Lack of advanced querying functions

Overall: I used Firebase as the data backend for a custom-built web application, and I loved it. I was looking for the simplest, most minimal solution to my data storage and I found it with Firebase. On top of that, Firebase merges beautifully with React when you take advantage of the subscription features. You should really give it a shot.

Pros: Easy setup. Its backend as a service nature ensures it handles all of my backend requirements. I also like the fact I have got cover for everytime I encounter a problem while using this software, thanks to unlimited resource videos and articles created by users on YouTube, Udemy etc

Cons: It is very time consuming and difficult to execute custom data queries using Google firebase. Has a steep learning curve too.

It is the best Infrastructure as a service facility. Makes building apps easier and more fun.

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

Pros: Clients often contact me with a request to advise a convenient service for developing mobile applications. I always advise the Google FireBase application. The service allows you to run back-end in the cloud. There is the possibility of tests.

Cons: The first and most significant flaw in the Google FireBase web service is the inability to develop applications without an Internet connection. The second drawback is the mandatory duplication of the business logic of all systems.

Pros: Google has really gone above and beyond in making their graphical interface easy to use. Other documentations and platforms like AWS make the barrier for entry like climbing Mount Everest. With Firebase, both experienced and new developers can grasp the functionality with relative ease and deploy robust applications. The iOS and Android integration are also especially effective.

Cons: Very little, to be honest. The free tier leaves plenty of wiggle room when mocking out applications, but it would be great to not be forced into paying for services if databases in use are deleted. My only other complaint is how occasional releases cause problems with older legacy applications. Error codes help track down the problems, but documentation seems a bit scant when changes first roll out.
