Update data in real-time

Your apps will update your data instantly, not 5 minutes later 😴. And it goes both ways, updates to Airtable are immediately reflected in your app. With Stacker, there's always a delay, even on the most expensive plan (e.g. an order update might only be effective only 5 minutes later).
