Overall Satisfaction with Firebase

Firebase is being used along with Flutter/Dart for cross platform mobile apps, and in native Android/iOS mobile apps as well. It provides very robust, scalable and easy to use APIs and SDKs that make your life as a mobile app developer so much easier[.]
  • Authentication APIs
  • Block storage
  • Databases
  • Cost management
  • Really, nothing. Perfect experience.
  • Pricing, most Firebase services can be tried first before buying
  • Robustness, scalability, availability
  • Ease of integration
  • Firebase enabled us to conclude possibly large services into a few lines of code, thus lots of time savings
  • Better quality for apps that are shipped to clients since the apps use a very robust and scalable backend
Comparing a fully managed web app platform like IBM Cloud Pak for Applications with Firebase is not really fair since Firebase has services that are optimized for use with mobile apps, but this is actually it's strength point and I haven't seen anything that really compares with Firebase in feature set, application support, etc.

Firebase is very well suited for pretty much any backend service for mobile apps. From databases to mobile notifications, Firebase will provide a service that you can use - and in most cases try tor free first - that will help you implement the feature as simply and reliably as possible.
