Fast Dynamic Image Processing in Your Appery.io Mobile App with Sirv

Posted: October 30th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: API | Tags: , | Comments Off

Such processing could be done on the client, but requires additional code and likely will effect app performance. A better solution is usually to process the images on the server where it is much faster and also gives you more options and flexibility. Sirv is a cloud service that does just that. Sirv and Appery.io have joined forces to show you how easy it is to use advanced image processing when building your app in Appery.io.
