The AWS Mobile team is continuously innovating and expanding our mobile services to enable developers to quickly build, deploy, and manage native, web, and hybrid apps for iOS and Android. By leveraging our services, developers are able to easily deliver rich cloud-enabled experiences to their customers by integrating a broad range of AWS services into their apps including voice & chat capabilities, user engagement, analytics, push notifications, cloud storage, NoSQL databases, GraphQL, online/offline data synchronization and serverless business logic.
The AWS Mobile SDKs are currently being used by tens of thousands of developers and thousands of mobile apps.
