I'm excited to share the news that we have released a number of new iOS samples for Windows Azure Mobile Services. These samples demonstrate common scenarios that developers will run into when using Mobile Services. All of these samples have been open sourced on GitHub and are available today.

Event Buddy

This is an iOS version of the EventBuddy samples already released for the Windows Store and Windows Phone 8. It enables you to view events and the sessions that correspond to those events.  You also have the ability to add new events and sessions from the app. Finally, you can view the details for each session and provide a rating for it. This is a great sample app to demonstrate as we now have versions that run on Windows Store, Windows Phone 8, and iOS. Once the Android SDK is released, we'll be looking to release an Android version as well.

Tic Tac Toe Leaderboard

This sample demonstrates how to make a simple leaderboard that is stored in Mobile Services and displayed in the application. The game in this application is Tic Tac Toe and each player's wins, losses, and ties are recorded and then shown on the scores screen.

Feedback

This sample shows an easy way to put a feedback form into an iOS application to capture feedback and store it in Mobile Services. In this scenario, the user can enter comments, their email address, and a 1 – 5 star rating before submitting their feedback. Additionally, this sample was generated so the files used to enter the feedback and send it to Mobile Services can be copied into a different iOS project with minimal effort.

Source in GitHub

Each sample includes some set up information in it's README. Additionally, we'll be adding more samples for iOS as time goes on. Finally, we'll be changing the link to Samples on the Mobile Services Dev Center to provide a separate page for samples for different operating systems. This should make it easier for developers to find the samples they are looking for.
