10 Reasons Explaining Why One Should Choose Parse Over Cloudkit
Multitude of cloud-based software programs like- parse, cloudkit, etc is used for engineering an application. It becomes challenging and pose a question before developers as to prefer which one over others for easy cloud management. To demystify such things, here 10 facts are showcased that highlights why ones preference should be Parse over cloudkit.
Explore the reasons that will
showcase where CloudKit falls
behind in and Parse excels
A recent trend in design, especially user interface design, is to streamline and
streamline until there's nothing but the bare essentials, or even less, in CloudKit's case.
The Dashboard is incredibly limited compared to Parse's.
There is a common saying, you simply cannot compete in this age without knowing
analytics, even if you have deep technical expertise.
With Parse, you get support for data-based analytics, allowing you to monitor all the
numbers you need to track.
Easy Importing & Exporting
With Parse, it's easy to back your data up in JSON to make sure that it's there for you
when you need it, and it's just as easy to import it back in. This makes it very easy to
transfer data if you get a new phone, laptop or other device.
If you make sure to back up every night, or just right before you make the switch, you
can pick up where you left off without skipping a beat.
You don't get Background Task with CloudKit. You do with Parse. This makes it very easy
to automate and streamline your process in development, analytics and design.
With Parse, you can work on OS, iOS, Windows and Windows Phone, and Android. If
you don't have an Apple product, you can't use CloudKit. This can create serious
problems if you're working with a team and you'd like for everyone to be on the same
You can create a website and grab a domain name right from inside of the Parse app.
But, with CloudKit, you'll need to find your own web host and then figure out how
you're going to get your work from the app onto that site.
Also, with Parse, it's easy to import and export to and from website and publish web
content directly from the app. CloudKit, not so much.
REST API allows you to access third-party libraries in order to receive and transfer data.
Parse offers REST API support, where CloudKit does not. Simply, accessibility is key in all
aspects of Parse's design, and REST API is a big part of that accessibility.
Social Network Support
This is the age of social media. Parse lets users log in through Twitter, Facebook and
other social networks, and then it stores their data in a Users table. CloudKit is a little
archaic in this regard, as it does have a Users table, but there's no built-in function to
collect data when users log in through their social networks.
Server Side Logic
Parse uses CloudCode, allowing developers to implement tasks on the server.
Calculating data or accessing a library is very easy with CloudCode. CloudKit has
nothing like this.
Support for Local Storage
Parse offers support for local storage and enables you to store locally anything that you
need to. There's no feature in CloudKit that let anyone choose whether to store data
locally or in the cloud.
