WhatsApp similar features app:

Using the user related API on the chosen MBaas platform, it is quite easy to come up with features like profile, friends list, chats, notifications etc in a mobile app. As the server work related to all of these features are very limited, due to API availability, mobile app development time is greatly reduced, thereby the cost of making the app and fast turn around time for app making.
