    I need some help. I am trying to get Push Notifications working in a new UWP app but having no luck. I have watched this video many times and the examples shown at/from around 51 minutes use the MobileService instance to register the channel.Uri...

    await MobileService.GetPush().RegisterAsync(channel.Uri);

    However, this line of code in a UWP app is invalid. The MobileService instance variable is created from a new MobileServiceClient which is from the namespace Microsoft.WindowsAzure.MobileService (version 1.3.1)


    In this video, is this a UWP app or a Universal Windows 8.1 app? As writing this same code in a W8.1 app works. And the Microsoft.WindowsAzure.MobileService namespace is version 2.0.0


    So my questions are...

    1. Is this example a W8.1 app and not a UWP app?

    2. If it is a UWP app then how do I get version 2.0.0 of Microsoft.WindowsAzure.MobileService to work?
