A framework for creating your very own multi-platform app with Azure Mobile Services as a backend. Get started by following the included Powerpoint file located in the root of the project. The XPlatformCloudKit supports displaying grouped items retrieved from an Azure Mobile Service, Rss Data Services, and/or Local file. It can aesthetically organize grouped objects of Type Item with property of Title, Subtitle, Description, Image, and Group to produce a Windows Phone 8.X, Windows 8.X, and Android application by means of Portable Class Libraries, Xamarin Studio, and MVVMCross. The value of the Description property is rendered as HTML, meaning you can do some rather interesting things. Check out the videos below to see how easy it is to get started!
