Backendless SDK for iOS has received several improvements which increased the portability of our code. As a result, the same library you use for the iOS apps can also be used in tvOS and watchOS apps. All the functionality available in our SDK is available in these two environment, this includes real-time database and real-time messaging. The Backendless APIs are the same as for iOS when using them in tvOS and watchOS apps. Below is a video with a demo of a tvOS app which shows the real-time database in action. The source code of the application demonstrated in the video is available at:
This is a very exciting improvement for the SDK as it opens up new opportunities for the developers who look to expand their reach to different types of Apple devices.
This is the first post in a series where we plan to explore Backendless features. We are working to produce quick 2-3 minute videos to demonstrate the advantages and simplicity of the “no-backend” approach with the Backendless backend-as-a-service platform.
Endlessly Happy Coding!
