According to Sukhar, active apps on the Parse platform grew by nearly 90 percent in the region during the first six months of the year, and apps that use all three of its products — Parse Core, Parse Push and Parse Analytics — rose more than 90 percent.

He added that six of the 15 countries with the most active Parse apps are located in the Asia-Pacific region: India, Japan, Australia, China, Taiwan and South Korea.

My co-founders and I started Parse in 2011 to solve our own problems. We were frustrated with all the repetitive work needed to build great cross-platform mobile apps. Our first customers were our friends who also built apps, and they mostly lived near us in San Francisco. Over time, we started attracting more customers that weren’t just our friends — first in Silicon Valley and soon throughout North America. Today, over 500,000 apps have been created on Parse, and hundreds of thousands of our developers hail from outside of the U.S. Our team is incredibly honored that so many developers across the globe have trusted Parse with their businesses and apps.

We are extremely excited about how much our community has grown since 2011. As that growth continues to accelerate, today I’m pleased to share the efforts we have made to make Parse even more friendly to our international community:

Localizing our content: We have localized our technical documentation and customer success stories into Chinese (simplified and traditional), Japanese, Korean and Russian.

Creating a truly global team: When we joined Facebook, our entire team moved from San Francisco to Menlo Park in California. Since then, we’ve expanded our horizons quite a bit. We’re now a global team with dedicated folks in London, Dublin, Paris and Singapore. And we’re excited to continue expanding wherever mobile developers need help.
