This looks fantastic, I'll definitely be checking this out!

Although "an extensible open-source
mobile backend framework" seems to say that it also applies to non iOS, it doesn't seem that it does. Is it more suited for iOS, or iOS only?
Admittedly, this is one of the best things that ever happened to open source w.r.t mobile development in the last few months!
But I worry about how it would hold up in terms of performance, given this recent benchmarking fest featured on HN. http://www.techempower.com/blog/2013/03/28/framework-benchma...
3) Moreover, with any mobile backend, you must assume that the keys that ship within the code of your native app will be public. So you should be using Access Control Lists if you're using the iOS SDK, for example.
Can this potentially also work for other mobile platforms?
The code would have better test coverage and more people to support the project.
I wondered in the subway while coming back home if Helios helps to sync backend-made changes to the app through push notifications, in an automagically fashion.
