Using Azure Mobile Services in Portable Class Libraries
It’s now possible using Mobile Services from PCL’s for your data access. Just add the Windows Azure Mobile Services NuGet package to your Portable Class Library and you should be ready to go.
When I added my package I got some errors however. A prerequisite is having NuGet of version 2.1 or later, but mine was over that.
*(If your’s is of a lower version, make sure to upgrade in Visual Studio via Tools -> Extensions and Updates…)
Seems the Mobile Services package isn’t going to work with Windows Phone 7 and higher selected, so the trick was to raise the version for supported Windows Phone OS to 7.5.
