Firebase / Parse-Server Cloud Functions

Posted 26 March 2017 - 07:31 AM

I am trying to figure out why a cloud function is better to use than just writing the code inside of the application. For example, if I am filling a ListView with information, I would make a call into the database table, use an adapter (Android) and fill the list view with that is inside of that table. If I am saving information into a table, I would create a new instance or a new parseobject.

Why would a cloud function be benefitical for handling that information for me? If I need to change anything or add something to the listview/object, I would need to update the application anyway to adjust the code either if I change the cloud function or not.

Where/when does using cloud functions benefit the overall performance of the application?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0
