Azure Account

 

Now it’s time to create your first Azure Mobile Service but in order to do so you must have a Windows Azure working account if you don’t have one you can register for a 90 days trial from http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/

Note: Internet Card or credit card that supports internet transactions is needed for authentication

 

Create your first mobile service

 

First of all you must go to the windows azure account portal from https://manage.windowsazure.com/ and sign in with your Microsoft account than you registered with for windows azure account

Then after going to the portal the previous screen appears with all of the services you’ve created choose new and select mobile service

After selecting create the following windows will appear for you to enter the URL for your mobile service and choose if you want to create a new Database and its region

Then press next to take you to the next page which you’ll specify the DB settings and then press finish to create your mobile serviceImage

 

 

Once you’ve done these steps you’ve successfully created your first mobile service then what you can do next is to either link it to an existing application or create a new application via the mobile service which will create for you a simple ToDo list application for the target platform that you choose and create a todo table for your application to store the items the user enters via the mobile service.
