Enjoy waiting for your server developer every time you need to create/update the schema, work on security and permissions, or have REST endpoints created? Hate focusing all your attention on just developing the App? Well then Parse is NOT for you. Parse is for those who enjoy simplicity when creating applications. Need to add a birthday:Date column to the User table? Well then user["birthday"] = date and save. Voila! birthdate is automatically added to user with the type of date without the hassle of receiving a cranky reply on the Jira task you'd normally create to accomplish the same thing. Isn't that awesome. No more unnecessary lunches to bribe your server engineer to catch up on the tasks you've been waiting for a week to even test your code! Faceboook, Twitter, Notifications, revokable sessions, class/table level security, Roles and permissions before/after save triggers, it's all there to control using the frame work for practically every language you can think of. After 7 years of using it I finally decided to start contributing myself. Its that awesome.
We used Parse a couple of years ago, to power a lot of our app's basic functionalities. We didn't have to re-invent the wheel. Saved so much time and cycle. It has since grown into a nice community around it, which makes it even more compelling.
Great framework for integrating with the Parse Platform which is now open source and has a small but great community around it.
