Consuming Azure Mobile Services–1st step towards Identity on the Phone?

Over the weekend I read an interesting blog series by Bruno Terkaly, titled “Introduction to Consuming Azure Mobile Services from iOS”. It has five parts, showing some basic principles on consuming Windows Azure Mobile Services with an iOS application on an iPad or iPhone. As a matter of fact, the complete issue of authenticating a user is missing in this blog series, but as Bruno is stating in his comment on the 5th blog post:

The portal will offer direct support for Authentication and Push notification for both ios and android.

So there might be an upcoming series on using authentication on iOS and / or Android, which might open the door a bit for the hot topic “Identity on the Phone” (do we already have IotP defined for that?) as it is completely missing in todays time having a smartphone being nearly everyone’s daily companion.

Here are the five blog posts on the topic:

Part 1 of 5: Introduction to Consuming Azure Mobile Services from iOS

Part 2 of 5: Introduction to Consuming Azure Mobile Services from iOS

Part 3 of 5: Introduction to Consuming Azure Mobile Services from iOS

Part 4 of 5: Introduction to Consuming Azure Mobile Services from iOS

Part 5 of 5: Introduction to Consuming Azure Mobile Services from iOS

So hopefully we do see any updates on his blog regarding the authentication topic, if he’s not already working on that. Looking forward to that.
