Overall Opinion: Building and supporting a modern mobile or web application can be very difficult, especially if your development team is small. This is where Firebase comes in. It offers a whole range of important functionality right out of the box, such authentication services that have built in support for Facebook, Google, and Twitter. Other terrific services include file storage for your app and database access, as well as crash reporting and notifications. Best of all, all of these services start out free, and the free level offers generous usage allowances. You will only start paying for the services when your app becomes heavily used and you are already hopefully earning money from it. Even after this happens, their services are affordable. On the down side, their querying and indexing capabilities are limited and often require manual effort. There is also no support for SQL databases. It further has not really been battle tested yet with big and popular apps, and finally it really locks you into the product. Once you decide to use it, it will not be easy to do it a different way or to do it with a different company in the future.
Pros: Has a whole host of useful services for developing and maintaining mobile and web applications Provides services that would be costly for small development companies to implement otherwise Provides a generous free level of services, and even the paid level of services is affordable
Cons: Has limited querying and indexing capabilities Has no support for SQL databases Has not yet been battle tested with big and popular apps Locks you into using these services in the future
