Database Support

User authentication is the most common use case for database support. Authentication allows you to protect some portion of your mobile content behind a registration or login screen. Our team will work with you to better understand how to support your back end database, and help with the integration.

Once a mobile user enters their data, we connect to your database API and validate the inputs. If your API approves, your app gives the user access to the protected content. Because there are so many different database systems, data types and APIs, we don’t yet have a generalized user interface for handling all the possible connections and integrations.

Database support is available to customers on our Enterprise plan. We're happy to discuss your specific use case, and how we might best provide a solution. If you have any questions about databases and App Press, please contact us at
