Twilio’s (News - Alert) voice and messaging APIs are now easily available to users of Parse's Cloud Code with the launch of Twilio Cloud Module designed to simplify the development of mobile applications that integrate with many third party services.
Twilio, which specializes in cloud communications, has partnered with mobile app platform Parse to this end.
Looking forward, businesses can expect many Parse integrations from these partners. Twilio's simple REST API is especially beneficial for developers that search for interactive voice response to design apps that require features such as mobile app distribution via SMS and call automation.
“Many mobile apps need telephony features, especially SMS. Our new Cloud Module makes it dead simple to hook up your mobile app to Twilio without having to maintain any intermediary servers at all. Sending an SMS is literally one line of code,” said Ilya Sukhar, CEO and co-founder of Parse.
Cloud communications company Twilio allows Web developers to integrate phone calls, text messages and IP voice communications into their Web, mobile and traditional phone applications.
“Parse is an excellent platform for developers,” said Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson. “With Twilio Cloud Module, developers can bring their voice and SMS apps to market and scale their businesses faster than ever--we can't wait to see what Parse developers build with Twilio.”
The cloud communications company Twilio was in news last month for announcing beta support for open source project WebRTC at their second annual TwilioCon conference.
