"I am tremendously pleased to share that today we have released the Windows Azure Toolkit for Android! We announced our intentions to build a toolkit for Android back in May, and it had always been our intention to release this summer (we only missed by a week or so).
In addition to this release of Android, we have also:
- Released the Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone (v1.3.0)
- Released the Windows Azure Toolkit for iOS (v1.2.1)
- Released a new Windows Phone sample called BabelCam both as source code and to the Windows Phone Marketplace
These releases complete our coverage of the three device platforms we intended to cover earlier this year when we started our work – Windows Phone, iOS, and Android.
Today we released version 0.8 of the Windows Azure Toolkit for Android. This version includes native libraries that provide support for storage and authN/Z, a sample application, and unit tests. Everything is built in Eclipse and uses the Android SDK.
I don't currently code for android (nor much Azure yet either...) but I know many do and I wanted to highlight this cross platform commitment by Microsoft. While you'd think it a no-brainer, sometimes corps have no brains... : o
Anyway, cool to see this and I hope there's more like commitments in the future.
