While adding back-end services to a mobile app can greatly increase its functionality and value to end-users, many mobile app developers are often constrained by limited time and financial resources and cannot afford to invest large amounts of either to set up an elaborate back-end to support their apps’ needs. Windows Azure Mobile Services aims to fill that need by providing a low-friction service infrastructure that can be used to support the needs of most mobile apps, including data storage and manipulation, authentication and authorization, connection to notification services, access to messaging services, custom server-based job scheduling, all within a framework that can be scaled to meet an app’s growing needs. Tapping into this framework allows developers to focus on their app development and achieve the cloud-connectivity within their apps.
