Worry Free LabsApp data management with Parse: Worry Free Labs’ take with the Kibun Snaps app
Having worked with Parse for more than a year, Worry Free Labs developers find it a useful tool for building apps that need a relatively straight forward backend. In the case of the Kibun Snaps, an iPhone app developed by Worry Free Labs, we used Parse for storing images, friend connections, and user profiles. Parse Data is practical for storing the app data in the cloud, and Parse Social lets Kibun Snaps users link to their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Kibun Snaps is a photo- and sticker-sharing app for the iPhone that lets users add the Kibun character to their photos with frames and stickers. Our client, Raw Emotion, Inc., wanted to find a fun and social way through a mobile app to market and generate exposure for its small, ghostly storybook character, Kibun. Raw Emotion has design experience, so Worry Free Labs’ role was primarily to execute the iOS development.
  We found the main benefits of using Parse for this mobile iOS development project as follows:
  • It’s easy to use, quick to set up, and is scalable.
  • It saved us on development time as well as costs for our client.
  • The Parse system is a super-convenient and easy way to fuel our mobile apps and avoid data and social networks management hassles.
  • And, best of all, relying on Parse’s backend services lets us focus on our core competencies: Creating great user experience design and remarkable mobile experiences.
