With Parse.com is due to close in a couple of days (28th January 2017) we’re very excited to announce an important new feature: Fast Migration.

Therefore, the recent addition of the Live Query feature to back4app makes app development on this platform an even more attractive option.

Through activation of Parse Live Query, they can now receive these real-time notifications of relevant database changes.
