      Hi Atif,

      Thanks for the feedback. I'm not sure what you mean by 'extend the time' - you mean you'd like a longer video?

      glad to hear you re-iterate that the application key is NOT a security feature!

      I watched this video because I have an XNA game that works with both Wp7 and W8 (through Monogame), however, I can use the Azure Mobile API on W8 but not on my WP7 version which is why I I'm opting for using the REST API in its place.

      I would like to know how to integrate this into the phone. How can I translate this process for use on a phone.
