Using APIs in the backend application development and architecture for mobile apps web services is useful on many spheres
API stands for an Application Programming Interface which are pieces of software that can get information about data assets such as prices, availability and lists of products.
For example, a manufacture might do API development and backend development to get the cost. Developers can use this API along with the APIs other manufacturers use in order to compare the different costs between manufacturers. In the same way, developers can use APIs in all industries for different purposes. APIs power the decision making process for business by giving them a cost-efficient solution for getting the right information quickly.
Human workers’ collection and preparation of some business information might be in many cases hard, slow and costly. However, using API as backend application can save your business in many aspects, like money and time. APIs work in the backend or the server side to provide data to your mobile app. API is like the oven in the kitchen of a restaurant, every served dish is cooked on but the end user never interacts with or sees however without it the cooking operation might be slow and expensive. Similarly, when a user uses a mobile app, the app might need to get some data to present it to the user. The app sends the details to the backend servers hosting its web services which make use of APIs to efficiently get the data then pass it over to the requester remote mobile app to present it to the user.
