Looking to cloud-enable your mobile app? Looks like Microsoft can help make that a lot easier.
Microsoft just demoed some very slick new mobile and cloud connections today at its BUILD conference in Redmond, showing how simple it is for developers to store their data in the cloud and perform operations on that data.
Josh Twist from Windows Azure Mobile Services — which he announced now support Windows Phone 8 — connected an app to Azure authentication services live onstage. Authentication protocols not only include Microsoft accounts, but also Facebook, Twitter, and Google accounts, and Twist showed how, in just a few lines of code, developers can add social login to their apps.
This works on any app on iOS as well as more traditional desktop apps for Windows Store, and now, of course, Windows Phone 8.

Then Twist connected the cloud app to a live tile on his Windows 8 PC, enabling quick and easy desktop monitoring of his mobile app’s activity. Also impressive.
A preview is available today, Twist said, and developers who sign up will receive 10 mobile services for free.
