Overall Satisfaction with Firebase

We used Firebase to keep track of the attendance of students in our class. The database is relatively fast for storing attendance. It doe take a little while to set up. User authentication works well. It takes some time to set up it. One thing about the authentication that bothers us is that you can not reset the password directly. When a user creates their account, Firebase gives the user the ability to set the initial password. But afterward, Firebase only lets you reset the password by email.

Firebase provides a backend for your mobile app. It's good platform to start your app and provides a way to scale your app. You can use the free authentication with phone numbers and email. You will need some technical skills and time to setup. You may even require someone to help you setup the database because there are many options. However, after a few times, the setup is easy. There is a learning curve.
