Overall Satisfaction with Firebase

It's mainly being used by our Product, UA, and Developer Teams. The Product Team uses it to A/B test push notifications and the subscription trial period. UA team mainly uses to track users across various events as well as Google UAC campaigns. The Developer team mainly uses the crashlytics to troubleshoot and fix stability issues. This allows them to help prioritize their task better based on their priority.
  • Google Ads: tracks users across UAC campaigns.
  • A/B Testing: in-app, push, and trial period.
  • Not so great at tracking traffic sources outside of Google Ads and organics.
  • Firebase UI can be slow sometimes if you're working with large data, loading issues, or an overall sluggish system.
  • Positive ROI: Most of our experiments are pushed out to 100% of our user base.
We choose Firebase for various reasons:
  • A large set of resources and world-class Google support.
  • Pricing was a larger role in this decision.
Firebase has a mass amount of resources that can be found on various channels to find your answer to the problem. It's easier to get the problems fixed in minutes. If you're still having issues, the Firebase Support team is always happy to help get you the answers you're looking for to troubleshoot the problem.

Firebase is great for anyone looking into getting into the mobile app business or ones that already have an app and needs an extra layer of analytics along with additional added features. Firebase helps with troubleshooting the most common issues along with making sure your app remains stable. It goes much further than that if you're interested in running experiments and A/B testing to optimize the user experience you can set that up easily. It gives you the ability to discover a lot of great things about your users and their usability of different features (UI, purchases, engagement, retention, etc.) and helps you identify if the experiment is likely to succeed or not.
