SAN FRANCISCO, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --StackMob, the leading
cloud-based mobile platform provider, today announced it has been selected as
a charter member of the Facebook Technology Partners Program, a group of
technology providers that will help developers build mobile applications
integrated with Facebook. StackMob was selected for the program along with 10
other developer-centric technologies that are easy to use and help to increase
developer productivity.

The StackMob platform provides a user-friendly environment with all of the
necessary tools and plug-ins that allow developers to focus on customizing and
deploying their mobile app, and getting it in the hands of Facebook members

StackMob eliminates or reduces many of the backend challenges associated with
building, deploying and growing a mobile business. Leveraging StackMob's
integration with Facebook, developers can use StackMob for rapid datastore API
creation and user management, and secure their users' data by enabling Login
with Facebook in their apps.

To help developers be more successful, StackMob is also showcasing its mobile
app building capabilities through Scrumptious, a sample app bundled with
Facebook's mobile SDKs. For developers, Scrumptious demonstrates how to
integrate Facebook features in mobile apps. With StackMob's additions to
Scrumptious, developers can now save any data to StackMob's cloud-based data
store, restrict access to that data using authentication via Login with
Facebook, run customer business logic in the cloud with StackMob's custom
code, and easily send push notifications to app users. StackMob has also added
a web app on its HTML5 hosting service to provide cross-platform

"The need for integrations with today's most popular social media channels is
a must when building and bringing a mobile app to market," said Ty Amell, CEO
and Co-Founder of StackMob. "With the explosive growth of Facebook, it's
critical that developers include Facebook features in their mobile apps.
StackMob is empowering developers with the tools they need to create
industry-leading apps that meet consumer social media demands."
