Building an app is much like laying the foundation for a building. Buildings require a solid foundation to stand the test of time, and similarly, apps must rely on their foundational properties – quality and accessibility – to withstand ruthless market forces. Those apps that make it over the long haul must rely on these core advantages, in conjunction with a powerful support system, encompassing distribution, operations, and analysis, to stand out from their competitors.
AppGallery Connect provides you with four categories of services, to make the daunting task of building and maintaining quality apps, remarkably easy.
Auth Service: Sign in your mobile and web users via a pre-built, hosted authentication system to protect both them and you.
Most apps need to authenticate users, but developing an authentication system on your own is both difficult and costly, as the system will need to support numerous accounts, and come equipped with rigorous data security safeguards. AppGallery Connect Auth Service allows you to build a secure and reliable user authentication system, at a minimal cost, and with zero hassle.
Unlike traditional methods, Auth Service is based on a pre-built, hosted authentication system, and supports a wider range of authentication methods, including by mobile number, email address, HUAWEI ID, Facebook account, or Twitter account, as well as providing for anonymous accounts that provide your users with an accelerated registration and sign in process. Building and maintaining an authentication system under this framework is far less time-intensive than any other alternative.
In addition, Auth Service can be closely integrated with other serverless features, enabling you to dictate simple rules that can broadly applied to protect user data security.
If you opt to integrate Auth Service before August 1st, 2020 , You will be eligible to receive the following benefits:
1. 30,000 free SMS verification messages every month
2. Dedicated technical support during service integration
3. An opportunity for broad-based exposure, as a successful case study
The free quota of SMS verification messages applies only to the mobile number + verification code authentication mode. If you are interested, please send your information in the following format to [email protected]: [Company name + App ID].
Cloud Functions: Build your mobile backend easily with an efficient and reliable function framework.
As app functions have become increasingly diversified and complex, it has taken longer and longer to build new apps, with app O&M becoming a costly endeavor. Cloud Functions is a serverless feature provided by AppGallery Connect that facilitates efficient, and reliable function development and running frameworks, by streamlining app development and O&M. It lowers the threshold for implementing app functions, allowing for the quick construction of service capabilities. Better yet, constructing a scalable and accessible serverless app only requires implementing the service logic, then developing and uploading the code for the function.
Cloud Functions can also be integrated with or extended to other cloud service capabilities. This enables you to flexibly stack services, as if they were building blocks, to implement the service logic, effectively reducing development costs in the process.
Cloud Storage: Store and distribute user-generated files on the cloud with superior performance and reliability.
File storage is notoriously time-consuming and labor-intensive, and characterized by the ever-present risk of data leaks. Cloud Storage provides your app with secure, reliable, and low-cost massive storage capabilities, enabling it to directly access files stored on the cloud.
Using the service provides you with all of the advantages of stable, secure, efficient, and intuitive storage, while freeing you from any of the work associated with storage server development, deployment O&M, and capacity expansion, or the need to track indicators related to availability, reliability, and durability. This lowers the barrier of entry for app storage, and allows you to focus on core service capabilities, operations, and branding.
Cloud DB: Collaborate your data between the client and cloud.
When developing a mobile app the traditional way, you may be forced to build each corresponding service from scratch. In addition to app logic development, you’d also need to perform data management, device-cloud data synchronization, as well as server deployment and maintenance.
This is where Cloud DB, bolstered with device-cloud synergy, comes into the picture. It ensures that data is accessible, consistent, reliable, and secure at all times, providing for seamless data synchronization between the client and cloud, which means that services remain available, even when offline. Just by integrating the service, you’ll be able to build apps that support device-cloud and multi-device data synergy.
In addition, as one of the services provided by AppGallery Connect, Cloud DB provides the Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) capability, which allows you to dedicate your creative energies toward service development, for soaring efficiency across the board.
All services mentioned above aim to simplify the development process, by facilitating improved efficiency, and helping you build quality apps quickly and effortlessly. You can select whichever services you desire when building apps, or combine multiple services to further ramp up development efficiency, and reinforce file data security, while minimizing costs.
If you're interested and want to experience Cloud Storage and Cloud DB. Please send an email in the format [Company name+App ID] to [email protected].
The new service Cloud Storage has been released in AppGallery Connect 10.5, which also includes a new and improved Auth Service. To learn more about AppGallery Connect 10.5, please open the link below.
