Mobile Backend Services (MBS) provides a set of REST APIs for creating, managing, and accessing different types of data in your cloud datasource, such as Users, Places, and Photos over HTTP or HTTPS. You can integrate MBS into your application using the Titanium,   iOS,  Android or  or Node.js SDKs SDKs, or by calling the the REST APIs directly directly.

To manage your application and its data—for example, to create or edit Users or manage Photos—you use Dashboard.


A standalone MBS datasource does not have a specific client application associated with it. Use a standalone MBS source if you want multiple applications to access the same datasource, or if your client application is not Titanium, Android or iOS.
