    I am trying to delete items from the listview using selection adapter ..the following is the getView method of the selection adapter


    public View getView(int position, View convertView, ViewGroup parent) {

    View v = super.getView(position, convertView, parent);//let the adapter handle setting up the row views

    v.setBackgroundColor(Color.parseColor(“#99cc00”)); //default color

    if (mSelection.get(position) != null) {

    v.setBackgroundColor(Color.RED);// this is a selected position so make it red


    return v;


    But i am getting the following error:

    The Google Mobile Backend Starter sample application is taken off I again checked by Clicking the link in this article as well. This line is also on the forwarded page:
    “The mobile backend starter sample application is no longer available”
    So far there is NO working code example that do the functionality of their Mobile Backend Starter working example. And no info on the forwarded page if / when it will be back again as a working example.

  • I’ve been using Kumulos for a while. its easy to use and does what you’d expect it to do. Its also a flat fee so you you know what your costs are going to be… I’d be wary of plans that charge by the API call, costs can get out of hand pretty quickly

  • Great list, was there a reason you did not include Azure Mobile Services

    • Oops sorry, I didn’t see that coming. I’ll add to the list asap. +1 to Microsoft.

    Nice list, thank you. I was wondering, what is your favorite service and why? I’m testing Parse and it seems really nice… but maybe I’m missing something. Any pros and cons you can point about parse?

  • Shekar

    I think Firebase is one of them

    • Fatih Şentürk

      • Ashwin Rajendra Prasad

        Firebase has been acquired by google and it is part of Google Mobile Backend now

  • fat

    I think should be in the list since it’s an e-commerce specific Backend as a service.
