Today we have released the Windows Azure Toolkit for Android, along with significant updates to the toolkits for Windows Phone and iOS. You can get the toolkits here:

The purpose of these toolkits is to make it easier for mobile device developers across device platforms to build applications that use Windows Azure to host services.

The initial release of the Windows Azure Toolkit for Android includes native libraries (for storage and authentication), a sample application, and unit tests. The updates for Windows Phone include support for SQL Azure in the Windows Azure Toolkit for Windows Phone, full support for Windows Azure Toolkits for Visual Studio 1.4 and Windows Developer Phone Tools 7.1 RC, and the full source code to the sample BabelCam which is now available in the Windows Phone Marketplace.

    I need a proper documentation for the android app. I am not a java guy but for some demo purpose i want to develop small app on android which will get the data from the Azure Cloud. I downloaded the toolkit but because of not having documentation i am not able to implement this.
    Need help please.

    I do think that with all of the fanfare that a Windows Azure Toolkit for Android is out, yet, they give virtually zero documentation.

    Where is the documentation on using this?
