We’re incredibly fortunate to be building Imagist (and Selfie) off Parse. A few years ago, building mobile apps means you had to roll your own backend too — now, we’re free to experiment with interactions and user-facing features fast thanks to services like Parse.
It’s one of the reasons why we could come out with a full social network for Selfie over a weekend.
Alaric is at Parse Dev Day today - excited to see what new toys we can play with in the next few weeks.
Also - we were somewhat worried when Facebook bought Parse earlier this year: was the service going to suffer? But it seems all is good so far!
Next few weeks will be exciting.
