Best mix of web, iOS, and Android on single server
Updated rails 4 tutorial of this repo (https://goo.gl/ISkU3o) and working with third party api for android called layer.com.
I feel that if new devs can get an understanding of creating identity tokens that are consumed by third party api the ability to quickly create functionality across all platforms is the next step of complete efficiency if rails.
Layer is a robust messaging platform for mobile, and now web. It can message other clients up to 2gb of Data, think videos. They are also in the works of video communication via webrtc next year.
I'm eager to learn how to put the layer api together on an android app. I hope this is relevant to others in the community.
Layer.com is created by the same team as Google voice. By simply making a api call and messaging is functioning across any device or platform is going to save me thousands of man hours.
