Pros
The documentation is fantastic and I especially love their unofficial Discord community -- great way to get instant feedback to questions and more.
Super easy to deploy to the server (much better than AWS in this). Great, easy to use UI and advanced features.
I love how easy to use Google Firebase is. My business managed to setup our application to production within a month thanks for the super detailed documentation.
Cons
There could be more mandatory access restrictions, by default open access to data is a bad idea and probably many users leave it that way, which reduces data security.
The execution is deplorable. They make it so confusing and awkward to setup, so much back and forth.
The main disadvantage is the search facility , which needs to be addressed. As the entire database is a json file its is difficult to search particular object.

Agrxis Review on Firebase

Reviewed a year ago

I've had an amazing experience using Firebase. From the ease of integration with my apps to the array of powerful features available, Firebase has exceeded my expectations in every way. The real-time database, authentication, cloud functions, and hosting services have been particularly useful in simplifying and enhancing the development process. Additionally, the comprehensive documentation and excellent customer support have made using Firebase a seamless and enjoyable experience. I highly recommend Firebase to anyone looking for a reliable and efficient backend solution for their apps.

Pros

I adore Firebase for a variety of reasons. Its simplicity of usage is one of the things I appreciate most. Building and managing a range of applications, whether they are for the web or mobile, is incredibly easy with Firebase. In particular, its real-time database, cloud features, and hosting capabilities are amazing and simplify development. Additionally, Firebase offers great analytics tools that enable me to watch app performance, understand user behavior, and make data-driven decisions to enhance my apps. Overall, Firebase is a fantastic app development platform that is simple to use, has a wide variety of functionality, and is a great option for both seasoned developers and newbies.

Cons

I have thoroughly enjoyed using Firebase and have not encountered any major issues or concerns. The platform is intuitive and easy to navigate, and the documentation is clear and helpful.

An excellent platform for your applications, storage and developments

Reviewed 4 years ago

I have used firebase for the development and hosting of web pages using its firestore and its authentication, which makes it a complete tool that developers like, as well as to create applications in a short time, which has helped me to comply with the customer's time needs.

Pros

What I like most about this product is how fast and easy we can deploy our web applications as well as create databases or manageable data models that are easy to use and understand. Also that we have everything in one place for our applications, hosting, storage and authentication

Cons

I would say that they should improve the limit of simultaneous connections that it has right now, which is a point to take into account for future improvements

Easy to setup, use, and affordable

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Very simple set up process - integrates easily with mobile and web apps and the pay-what-you-use plan is perfect for getting value out of the platform.

Cons

The querying is a real issue as your data scales. There are times where searching can take upwords of 5-10 seconds for large datasets due to the unstructured / denormalized data structure.

Good but can be MUCH better

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

- good documentation - easy to integrate - nice videos with explanations

Cons

Please add features: - error reporting (like crashlytics had). not crash reporting but specifically error reporting. something similar to events reporting but for errors. - the UX of events and parameters is super hard in the Analytics section. please improve the UX there - i think the best thing crashlytics had but you didn't implement is the every day emails that are sent to the mailbox with stats on your app (analytics stats but not crash reports)
