Not too long ago I mentioned that Microsoft had released a Bing Maps framework for iOS devices, and they have continued to support the iOS platform releasing an open source Windows Azure toolkit for iOS devices.

For those unfamiliar with Windows Azure, Windows Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform allowing you to host applications and data.

What the toolkit currently allows you to do is easily utilize the table and blob storage provided by Windows Azure within your iOS apps.  Features such as push notifications, and access control are being added.

You can find the toolkit along with samples and documentation on Github here:
https://github.com/WindowsAzure-Toolkits/wa-toolkit-ios

You can also find a writeup on getting started with the toolkit here:

If you ever have the need to support Windows Azure within an app be sure to keep this in mind.
