Build offline apps with Azure Mobile Services

In this video, Donna Malayeri walks through how to use the new offline features in Mobile Services. This is a companion to the tutorials Get started with offline data in Mobile Services and Handle conflicts with offline data. With this feature, mobile applications can create and modify data even when they are offline. When the app is back online, it can synchronize local changes with the Mobile Services backend. The feature also includes support for detecting conflicts when the same record is changed on both the client and the backend, allowing the developer to decide how to handle such conflicts.
