Why would you use WebSocket in your application? It's realtime, it's very fast with a persistent connection, you can push message to the client from the server and the list goes on. All these can be done with Socketize without hassle of managing a WebSocket server and writing long client side scripts.
Socketize also gives you a NoSQL like database in the cloud. You can directly access this database from the browser via WebSocket (with fallback for older browsers), backed by a no-compromising security. You also get built-in user authentication system.
You can do all these things via REST API too.
If you want to make your app realtime, Socketize can help you.
If you want to integrate the power of WebSocket and realtime technology into your current app, Socketize can help you.
Build an app from scratch without backend
Socketize got you covered with user authentication, cloud database, security and validation. Write your business logic in the frontend and forget about the backend. You can use AngularJS, Vue.js, Ember.js, jQuery or anything.

Note, if your app has to do heavy data processing then this use case won't work for you.
Make your app realtime in no-time
Subscribe clients(browser) for events and publish data to these clients from your backend using our REST API in realtime. Learn more here.
Enhance your app with Socketize
You can take advantage of the speed of WebSocket transfers in your current/existing app.
You can send data to Socketize from your backend via the REST API and you can to read it in client side in amazing speed. For example you can cache search terms for autosuggest in Socketize via the REST API and read it in the client for blazing fast autosuggest in the client/browser.
You can use your backend as write-only, and when you write you will send data to Socketize via API, you may or may not store data in your backend database. Socketize client will be your readonly source. Which is fast and you can use client side business logic. Here you will be using your backend as just a data processor and you will use Socketize as you datastore or cache server.
These give you some basic ideas, possibilities are endless.
