Azure Blobs and Identity Foundation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone have any samples of how to use blobs in windows phone 7?  Can windows Identity Foundation be used to authenticate someone without using a webservice?

     

    Thanks,

    An issue with using blobs directly in windows phone 7 would be the need to distribute Azure Storage credentials to the phone unless you use public containers, shared access signatures or some intermediary service (web role) which proxied access to the Storage Service.
