Just posted the blog Azure Mobile Services .NET Updates describing new features now available for Azure Mobile Services including:

  • Support for CORS using ASP.NET Web API CORS enabling first class support for specifying CORS policy at a per-service, per-controller, or per-action level.
  • An extensible authentication model enabling you to control which authentication mechanisms are available for your mobile service clients. For example, you can add your own authentication mechanisms in addition to or in place of the default support for Azure Active Directory, Twitter, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft Account.
  • Support for Azure Active Directory Authentication using a server-side flow simplifying client authentication significantly.

If you are building cloud connected mobiles apps then check out Microsoft Azure Mobile Services and let us know what you think!

Have fun!
