One month ago I started to work with Windows Azure for developing mobile applications with Windows Phone and IOS. At the moment I created a mobile service and all I can say is “Windows Azure is amazing!”. Great work, yes!.
Azure lets me to implement a service for my mobile application only with few clicks. I can associate a database with the service and also I can add authentication and notifications with only few lines of code.
And Microsoft teach us how to implement that in Windows 8, Windows Phone, IOS, Android and HTML.
I recommend Windows Azure a lot. Try it and it will like you. I’m sure.
