Why Should Enterprises Use Xamarin for App Development?
Xamarin has taken this attempt a step further and with Xamarin Forms launched they have truly achieved write-once-work-all solution. Xamarin basically provides an abstraction over different native apis and allow developers to create a cross platform app with almost 100 percent code reuse. Also, unlike Titanium and PhoneGap, Xamarin uses C# as its main coding language and a .NET framework based Xamarin Studio as its main coding environment. It also comes with a plugin for Visual Studio, so a .Net developer can easily code for a Xamarin app and code management is absolutely hassle free. Another advantage with Xamarin is that you can design your app in such a way that your UI is consistent across platforms. You can have your own UI standard and that being rendered on all the platforms. This though might not have exactly similar native look and feel, but would be consistent across platforms. Therefore, it makes sense for Enterprises to build on such a platform from the branding and ease of use perspective.

When To Use And When Not To Use Facebook Parse?
1 Demerits of using Parse: When not to use Parse? No doubt Parse can suffice as a larger back end system to application developers by taking complete care of your back-end, yet there are certain drawbacks in technical and coding parts of Parse. Such flaws were first and more popularly noted by the Premium Account Customers of Facebook Mobile Application Developers. 1.1 Scalability - The queries are limited to 1000 records. In the beginning it does not seem like an issue until you will deal with the queries later on. The sub-queries return some strange data and cuts records off without warning or error. - For some strange reason there is a limit to the number of times you can issue a count query per minute and this limit appears to be really low. - Background Jobs do not run reliably. For example, for a background job set to run every 5 min, there are times it can take up to 20+ min before the job will kick in. - Lots of Timeouts. - There is a general instability with the system. Issues lasts for about an hour or so where timeouts happen more frequently. 1.2 Pricing Also, the pricing is one of the biggest constraint which provokes a second thought to many application developers before actually considering Parse as their BaaS service provider. Parse changed their pricing plans since May 2014 The old plans says… - Free version of Parse gives you 1 million requests per month, 1 million pushes a month, and the burst limit is 20/second. - Another version of Parse costs $199/month, where you get 15 million requests a month, 5 million pushes, and the burst limit is 40/second. This means for each person who accesses database 5 times a day would roughly mean 150 requests a month and therefore it takes 6,666 people until a user can consider to upgrade to the paid plan. And that’s not much. The free version of Parse SDK gave mobile application developers a good amount of scope to experiment with extensive features of Parse. This also eases Facebook application development process earlier. The paid Parse developers get a bit intimidated to use the same for experimentation or maybe educate about it for the purpose of expanding their knowledge base. And then take-off from there. Besides of course the current plans says… In the free plan, it permits 30 requests per second in a 20 GB file storage space, another 20 GB of database storage space, 2 TB of file transfer bandwidth in an environment where 1 concurrent jobs are being run. For each of the app besides this, you get 1 million unique recipients per month in Parse Push while Parse Analytics absolutely free. 1.3 Creation and Maintenance Another thing to consider is, difficulty in creating and maintaining following things: - Server side code - Database management and security - Push notifications - Set up a host - Session management and security
