Google has launched a new service platform powered by their App Engine. They call it Mobile Backend Starter and it is aimed at Android app developers.
These developers can now easily deploy a cloud backend for their apps using this new service. Google said:
Mobile Backend Starter gives you everything you need to rapidly set up a backend for your app, without needing to write any backend code. It includes a server that stores your data with App Engine and a client library and sample app for Android that make it easy to access that data. You can also add support for Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) and continuous queries that notify your app of events you are interested in. To keep user data secure, Mobile Backend Starter also includes built-in support for Google Authentication.
Google also pointed to a video from the recently concluded I/O event which talks about this service:
