This is a demo application that illustrates use of Windows Azure Mobile Services on four mobile platforms: Android, iOS, Windows Phone 8, and Windows 8.
Rent-a-Home is an application that helps users find apartments for rent and insert new apartments. It can also display apartments on a map. The application supports login (authentication) with Twitter, so apartments can be associated with the user that added them.
Some additional references mentioned during the presentation:
- Azure Mobile Services component in the Xamarin Store.
- Parse Pricing Model.
- Azure Service Bus Notification Hubs -- scalable push notification support, coming soon to Azure Mobile Services as well.
- Nadlandroid -- an application illustrating some of the Parse features that are not available in Windows Azure Mobile Services.
Finally, to reproduce this demo with your own mobile service, you'll need two tables:
apartment, with the server scripts described in the server-scripts.md file.
