Resources for client apps that uses the Azure Mobile Services

In the last months, I have been working with Azure Mobile Services, where my focus was  create .Net BackEnd for IOS and Android Developers. For different reason I searched for the right article for each subject or problem and saved it as a curation for share and use later.

Here are the resources focused in each platform

  • Azure Mobile Service for client apps – IOS Developers (Native)
  • Azure Mobile Service for client apps – Android Developers (Native)
  • Azure Mobile Service for client apps – Xamarin Developers
  • Azure Mobile Service for client apps – Windows Developers

Note: in some cases is need to select if we want a .Net or a JS BackEnd.

and is possible to use the start point Azure Mobile Services for Client Apps which contains all references defined above.

 

Enjoy it! 🙂
