Create Android Application With Google MBS

Google MBS is a package that provides an Android application client with client side classes and a cloud backend and includes a sample that offers:

  • a ready to use generic backend datastore for the majority Android applications
  • client side framework classes (no necessity to write own code to be able to access the backend)

The mobile backend starter sample provides a ready-to-deploy, general purpose cloud backend and an Android client providing general purpose client-side framework classes. The sample provides you with:

  • a generic, ready-to-use backend datastore for most Android client apps.
  • client side framework classes that free you from having to write your own code to access the backend

You can find more information on Google MBS at https://developers.google.com/cloud/samples/mbs/. To start creating your Android applications with Google MBS solution, log into your Google Cloud Console and follow Getting Started instructions.
