Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I can totally understand your point.
However, I wouldn't say the release was premature, Telerik Backend Services are successfully powering LIVE apps at the moment. Indeed, we might not cover all possible scenarios for all possible apps right now, but we have the energy and flexibility to make it happen very soon.
Even at this moment we are developing some features that cannot be found in today's BaaS world. We are also strengthening our story in other areas, like push notifications, where customer interest is highest.
We are aiming at providing great integration stories. You can use only AppBuilder and you can use it with Azure Mobile Services, if that is what you want. But in AppBuilder there is a nice integration with Kendo Mobile, and Kendo Mobile has great integration with Telerik Backend Services. And this goes on and on with other Telerik products. Our idea is to empower developers, not lock them in.
Everlive is now Telerik Backend Services
