Microsoft Azure Mobile Services

My thanks to Microsoft for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote Azure Mobile Services.

Azure Mobile Services provides a scalable and secure backend that can be used to power apps on any platform — iOS, Android, Mac, even Windows. With Mobile Services, it’s easy to store app data in the cloud, authenticate users, and send push notifications. Built from the ground up to be flexible and extensible, Mobile Services lets you code your app backend in C# or Node.js. You can save app data either on-premises or in Azure SQL database, blob storage, table storage, and MongoDB .

Some of you might think it’s odd to see Microsoft sponsoring Daring Fireball, but there’s nothing funny about it. I’ve got first-hand experience with Azure Mobile Services — it’s a fantastic backend for iOS and Mac apps.
