    I am very new to the new to the Telerik platform so I have little knowledge about it.

    At the minute I am trying to develop an android "Recipe" app that will pull down recipes and other data from a backend db. I want the Admin to be able to manage the recipes from a custom backend Web Portal. Is this possible? or is the only way to add new data to the backend through the Telerik Backend Services?

    Hello Adrian,

    Thank you for choosing Telerik Platform!

    The modular nature of the platform allows you to connect a chosen module (e.g. a Backend Services, Analytics, Mobile Testing project) to a mobile app built with AppBuilder and to a web app at the same time, using your API/Project keys and the corresponding SDKs. For example, you can use the Backend Services JavaScript SDK into an AppBuilder project and into a web site that both connect to the same backend project. If you are building a native Android app you can use the Backend Services Android SDK to access the backend project and the JavaScript SDK for the web project.

    To help you get started, we have a 'Friends' sample app that is available in mobile (native and hybrid) and web versions. They can be accessed from here. It flawlessly connects an AppBuilder, Backend and Analytics project into a real-world solution relying on the integration between the Telerik Platform modules. In order to see this in action:

    - Create a Backend project of type 'Sample Social app' in a chosen workspace in the Platform
    - [Optionally] Create an Analytics project
    - Create an AppBuilder project of type AppBuilder Friends
    - Download the Friends Web sample app from here
    - Enter your Backend API Key and Analytics product key in scripts/app/settings.js at the following fields, both in the web and hybrid projects:

    Copy Code
          // Put your Backend Services API key here
          // Put your EQATEC product key here
            version:''      // Put your application version here

    Now, you will have a mobile and web app sharing the same backend and analytics services.

    Please, let us know if you have further questions.
