This NEEDS to work in a PCL project, which it clearly doesn't - the whole point of Xamarin is to share code via PCL

LoginAsync does not work (null reference). If I use the sources from https://github.com/xamarin/azure-mobile-services it works fine. (iOS). Data manipulation is fast and easy.

One warning - if you tell the debugger to break on all errors, you'll see an exception in the HTTPS infrastructure. The exception is actually thrown, caught and handled by Mono under normal conditions.

Is there anyway to reference this component from a profile78 PCL project?

I used it in PCL project and, as declared in Known Issues, the component is not compatible with WP8. Anyone knows a common way to organize a project that targets iOS, Android, WP8 and WindowsStore, build with Xamarin, where there is a Core project to share common logic? I mean that in this Core project I would like to put as much code as possible to manage Azure calls.

To everyone having problems, follow the walkthroughs from the mini-hacks that were part of Evolve on Github: https://github.com/xamarin/mini-hacks/tree/master/WindowsAzure

I was able to get the Login to work using the component. Looks promising, thanks!

InvokeApiAsync is not available, so accessing custom api scripts is not (currently) supported :\ Other than this, it's working properly.
