I appologize if this is a dumb question, but I am new to app development, altough some experienced in php/html.

I want to create an app where user fills in forms. The app development is easy to find info about, but i also want a back end plattform where I read the submitted forms and organize users.

So, my question. Is there a sort of ready wordpress like plattform to customize, or should this be built from scratch? If so, which platform is the best?

I work at Kinvey, a BaaS provider.

You list a number of fundamentally different services, so first to frame the answer you have this choices, ordered by relative position in the stack:

Baas (Kinvey, Parse, Stackmob)
PaaS (Heroku, GAE, Beanstalk, etc)
IaaS (EC2, Rackspace, GCE, etc)


In the direction IaaS->PaaS->BaaS you gain productivty, and in the opposite direction you gain control.

One note I should add about Buddy (full disclosure: I work there) is that we maintain independent instances of the platform in different locations around the world. If you need to host your backend in Europe (for response time or data sovereignty reasons, for example), you can choose your app backend to be sandboxed in the EU. Likewise the US and likewise China (with Brazil, Singapore and Australia coming soon).

he best way to develop mobile apps is to use REST services. So now you can choose any thing.
Any language that can used for server side programming can be used.
Now it is up to you choose the language.
If you familiar with JavaScript then you can try nodejs. You can make small app server in it.
But if your server software design is very complex (containing threads and synchronisation) then java can be handy.

But there is no restriction of language.

Firebase should be also a way to go for this.

The best android back end services include, Parse, Kumulos, Kinvey, backendless, QuickBlox.
Concerning the forms where users can fill up information, would something like help out?

On Apple's platform you might need an iPhone developer - it is quite possible to create and publish an iPhone app using your form.
I did take the help of mobile apps development service in toronto to know the process which is described here: http://support.brightcove.com/en/app...tore-using-mac

I have heard good things about Hasura (Not affiliated in anyway). And I think parse - mentioned above - is no longer available.

I'm wondering why nobody mentioned Google CLoud or AWS. They are most mobile friendly for a good price

Hi, if you will decide to build from scratch, there are different options/frameworks. But If you use kotlin you should look to Ktor.
