Create a Mobile Service in Azure

Azure Mobile Services is deprecated, please migrate to Azure App Service.

Tutorial requirements:

  1. Create a new Mobile Service in Azure.

    _The wizard will take you through this process in a couple of steps. Once the mobile service is created it will only take a couple of minutes to start up before its ready to use.*

  2. Create Todo Table.

  3. Download Todo App.

  4. Extract the Eclipse project archive and Import Project in Android Studio.
    _The project may take a while to import while Gradle syncs the libraries.*

  5. Build and run!

  6. Add ToDo item and then browse the TodoItem Table in Azure Mobile Services.

Cool! You just built an Android app with a cloud backend in minutes :)

Now you can add table permissions and setup authentication using Twitter in the next tutorial.
