Even phpFox is a full-fledged social network platform for building various types of online community, we still know that we cannot fully satisfy your imagination. You might want to integrate phpFox with your custom-built softwares so that they can read and write any data to the platform. You might want to build you custom front-end apps utilizing the phpFox architecture. Alternatively you might want to create your own mobile apps for your social community. All of these kinds of applications can be created easily with phpFox REST API system.
