Facebook’s Parse hits 100,000 app mark

Parse300Parse, which Facebook acquired in April to boost its mobile development, announced a major milestone Thursday: 100,000 apps built on the platform. Parse CEO Ilya Sukhar announced this on the company blog:

We’re really proud to announce today that we’ve had over 100,000 apps built on the Parse platform, up from 80,000 apps at the end of April. We grew more in the last month than we did in our entire first year of existence!

It’s never been a more exciting time to work on Parse. We recently joined forces with Facebook and have accelerated on all fronts.

Parse has integrated with Facebook but still works independently. It is a cloud-based platform that provides tools for mobile app developers. Facebook purchased the company outright in April, in order to strengthen its mobile side. Parse offers backend services, data storage, social integration tools and other services so developers can build mobile apps on different platforms. Facebook’s mobile aim, after all, is to create the best experience, regardless of what kind of phone is in hand.
