New opportunities for StackMob users

Posted by Daryna Dorogan on February 24, 2014

With the recent disbanding of StackMob we decided that their users should not suffer technical difficulties because of that. We have developed StackMob to QuickBlox Tutorial materials which will help StackMob users to switch to QuickBlox with no pain. We’ll provide a quick comparison of features from StackMob SDK to those found in the QuickBlox SDKs. From the code examples, you’ll see that making the switch to QuickBlox is really easy.
