Firebase Demo Project: FAQs and Feature Requests[ Edited ]
November 2016 - last edited November 2016
The Firebase demo project includes data from the Flood It! App (Android and iOS), a real gaming app with in-app purchases. Flood It! is a puzzle game in which you have to flood the whole game board with one color in less than the allowed steps. Therefore, the data in the Firebase Demo Project is typical of what you might see for a gaming app.
The Demo Project has a number of Firebase features enabled: Analytics, Crash Reporting, Test Lab, Notifications and Remote Config. We’ll be enabling more features in the future.
Please share any feature requests or ideas to make the Demo Project more useful within this post. Also please use this post to let us know if you need any help with the demo project. We have answered FAQs below.
