This book collects challenges engineers face when building iOS and Android apps at scale, and common ways to tackle these. By scale, we mean having numbers of users in the millions and being built by large

This book perfectly represents what are the challenges iOS and Android engineers face when working at scale on big apps with millions of users and large teams.
This is a must-read for all engineers that are curious to know more of the challenges faced by their mobile teammates.

Great book! It summarized most of the problems in building an app. If you're building apps, it's a mandatory read. There's no deep analysis for each one, but the points will open your eyes and mind. Another great point is the many references for cases and articles in different companies and how they solve them, and it's a way for you to go deeper and solve your problem or for a better understanding. ...more

This book shows the problems that the developers of apps with millions of users face and how the developers can prevent or solve these problems. It also lists many tools that can be useful when you're working on a large-scale app. Even if you're a developer working on a small app, you should read this book. It gives you an idea of many problems that you may be unaware of and are worth considering from day one. ...more

As a mobile developer whose worked on a handful of large apps, this book was spot on. It offers a fantastic overview of the all the different factors and angles of mobile development, and just from a development perspective (never mind marketing, SEO, design, etc.). Highly recommend for all mobile devs, from aspiring to principles, and anyone who may work with one.

A book packed full of golden nuggets of what mobile engineering teams have to account for when building more than trivial apps. A great resource for non-mobile engineering teams and managers to understand the level of complexity your fellow "fronted mobile engineers" go through. Having worked on mobile apps at scale, I have encountered all the challenges presented by Gergeley. ...more

This book is one-of-a-kind.

A complete and comprehensive guide of the challenges of building native apps with millions of users.
Absolutely recommended if you are serious about building apps. Or if you work with Android and iOS devs and are curious about their challenges.
