Amazon Web Services is launching its Mobile Hub for accessing cloud services to build and monitor mobile apps.
With today’s debut at the Re:Invent conference in Las Vegas, Mobile Hub features a console integrating discovery, configuration, and access to AWS for bulding, testing, and monitoring mobile apps. It features AWS options, client SDKs, and client integration code, as well as capabilities for push notifications and analytics. Mobile Hub supports both Android and Apple iOS mobile platforms.
Mobile Hub, currently listed in beta, will help developers offload responsibilities for dealing with back-end cloud services. Rapid development is a key benefit, according to Amazon. “This is really going to help you speed up your mobile development so that you only have to focus on the functionaIity that you really want to deliver to your customers,” Amazon CTO Werner Vogels said. “It makes it easy for mobile developers to get really started by having the cloud as their back-end service.”
