Windows Azure for Windows Phone 7 Toolkit Updated

April 29, 2011 1 Comment

A new Toolkit for Windows Azure for Windows Phone 7 was recently released. For those of you who don’t know what the Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone 7 is well it is basically a way to make it easier for developers to make applications that can utilize the Cloud services. The Toolkit contains:

  • Binaries – These are libraries we’ve written that you can use in your Windows Phone 7 applications to make it easier to work with Windows Azure (e.g. a full storage client library for blobs and tables). You can literally add these libraries to your existing Windows Phone 7 applications and immediate start leveraging services such as Windows Azure storage.
  • Docs – We’ve provided documentation that covers setup and configuration, a review of the toolkit content, getting started, and some troubleshooting tips.
  • Dependency Checker – As you’ve come to expect and love, we provide a full dependency checker to ensure that you have all the bits required in order to successfully use the toolkit.
  • Project Templates – We have built VSIX (which is the unit of deployment for a Visual Studio 2010 Extension) files that create project templates that make it easy for you to build brand new applications.
  • Samples – We have a sample application that fully leverages the toolkit, both available in C# and VB.NET. The sample application is also built into one of the two project templates created by the toolkit.

Version 1.1 which was released on April 12, 2001 and contained the following:

  • Push Notification support (i.e. raw, tile, and toast)
  • Push Notification message generation via web application
  • Store identity token in isolated storage (also including logout functionality)
  • New users automatically have access to blobs and tables
  • Bug fixes

Good to see that devs will receive contiuous support from Microsoft. If you are interested in downloading the Toolkits you can get them here.
