Oursky is a digital product studio founded in 2008. We develop web & mobile apps for startups and enterprises. In 2015, 60% of Oursky's published iOS apps were featured in Apple's App Store and one was selected as a Best of 2013 App.
Our flagship product - Skygear.io, is an open-source backend as a service (BaaS) for Web / Mobile / IoT. Skygear.io provides common backend services (such as authentication, database, push notifications, background jobs, pub-sub, chat, and messaging etc.), server-less functions in microservices architecture. Developers can thus focus on building amazing client-side experiences faster and easier.
We also runs a few side-products for developers, including makeappicons.com, shotbot.io and mockuphone.com, which are used by tens of thousands of developers worldwide every months.
