3 Years back, Facebook purchased every app developer's favourite backend-as-a-service, parse.com.

Reports suggest that there were over 600,000 apps using the service. Essentially, 600,000 apps that had come to rely on it.

Today, they've announced they are closing it down.

For app developers, it's a kick in the parse.
