Build engaging mobile apps fast

Use the Mobile Apps feature of Azure App Service to rapidly build engaging cross-platform and native apps for iOS, Android, Windows, or Mac; store app data in the cloud or on-premises; authenticate customers; send push notifications; or add your custom back-end logic in C# or Node.js.

Quickly add corporate sign-in

Authenticate your customers with Azure Active Directory; more securely connect to on-premises resources like SAP, Oracle, SQL Server, and SharePoint; and take advantage of cross-platform frameworks like Xamarin and PhoneGap to build enterprise-grade apps for your employees.

Use offline data sync to build responsive apps

Create robust apps that remain useful when there are network issues, so that your customers can create and modify data when they're offline. Improve app responsiveness by caching server data locally on the device. Use Mobile Apps to provide a native sync experience across your iOS, Android, and Windows apps.

Connect your apps to on-premises data

Use Azure to build mobile apps that consume data from your own datacenter. With Azure Hybrid Connections and VPN, it's easy to access your data more securely from your on-premises datacenters from anywhere in the world.

Broadcast personalized push notifications to millions in minutes

Azure Notification Hubs is a massively scalable mobile-push notification engine capable of sending millions of push notifications to iOS, Android, Windows, or Nokia X devices within seconds. Easily hook Notification Hubs into any existing app back end, whether that back end is hosted on-premises or in Azure.

Autoscale to fit your business

Configure built-in autoscale for Mobile Apps and Notification Hubs to match your app needs. Spin up or down resources based on actual usage, and only pay for what you need. With access to the global network of Microsoft managed datacenters, reach your customers anywhere in the world.
