"AWS Amplify for scalable mobile apps"

What do you like best?

You can easily create highly scalable server-less mobile applications and allows you to integrate the back-end with a variety of front end frameworks such as react native. It is easy to learn and use and is also easy to maintain. Amazon offers a great style guide for developing UI components that play well with Amplify.

What do you dislike?

Users could experience lower response rates for queries. Otherwise, I find AWS Amplify a really great tool to use.

AWS Amplify allows users to create serverless apps that could easily be integrated with a JavaScript front-end. It has a great, simple and easy to navigate user interface.

"Beautiful UI components, super-easy integration of AWS cloud services on the mobile side"

What do you like best?

AWS Amplify is a library to help connect serverless functions/backends with mobile frontends. It is a component that can connect mobile frontends and tools to AWS Lambda functions among other products. This functionality in itself is great, because it makes hosting backends, data, etc... and creating a functional backend in general much cheaper than normal virtual machines that are cloud hosted, like AWS EC2, Google Cloud Platform Compute Engine, and DigitalOcean's Droplets. Additionally, Amplify provides a library of *beautiful* UI components for integrating this functionality, and it is all open-sourced. It is incredible easy to integrate into iOS, Android, React and a few other web frameworks, and React Native. Amazon also provides a style guide for continuing to develop UI components that work together with Amplify.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike here. If you're using some of Amazon's other serverless products in conjunction with the Amplify Framework, there are some things like the setup process and documentation that can improve in those products.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If there are use-cases where serverless products hosted on Amazon Web Services make sense, Amplify provides all the tools, components, and libraries necessary to implement the connection between mobile/web and the backend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used Amplify for some of our authentication services. Specifically, Cognito Auth, because the pricing is super affordable, integrated in to the AWS console, has Amplify UI Components already included in the library, and works with other authentication protocols like OAuth 2.0.

"Good Until It Isn't"

What do you like best?

I like that AWS Amplify typically just works - for multiple organizations, vendors and buyers. AWS is well known and Amazon is an incredible company with great resources available to them. Amplify makes it easier to build a Serverless backend and integrate it with your front end. Goal of AWS Amplify Auth is to make common tasks easy, let developer focus on their business differentiators.

What do you dislike?

It's in the cloud, which is great, but when it goes down it ALL goes down.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend a backup to AWS in the event that it goes down.

"Solid Javascript Cloud Library"

What do you like best?

AWS Amplify allows users to create server-less applications that could easily be tied in with a JavaScript basic front-end. Very easy and user friendly interface for development

What do you dislike?

Only drawback so far is using federated identities in combination with @auth is literally impossible without their hosted UI login... Which doesn't work with react native.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is smart to have a backup service
