Android & IOS How to achieve real-time message through Parse.com

The "Self-destructing message" is great! After learning this tutorial, I feel that I can do a cool project of my own. I want to build an app with real-time message using Parse.com, but I couldn't find right information in the document of Parse.com. How do the ParseObject Classes interact with another, I mean, the ParseUser Class has a relation method, what about the other Classes? It takes a lot of time to perform ParseQuery that makes the app slowly. I'm stuck here, any useful tutorial would be great!

ParseObjects can have ParseRelations added to them just like the ParseUser class. You should be able to modify the Ribbit app to handle text messages instead of image and video messages. As for the performance of PFQuery, I'm not sure what else you could try. You could try getting more Parse-specific help like that on the Parse.com forums.
