a  recent study by gartner  predicts a very significant increase in cloud usage by consumers in a few years, due in great part to the ever growing use of smartphone cameras by the average household. in this context, it could be useful to have a smartphone application that is able to upload / download digital content from a cloud provider.

in this article, we will construct a basic android prototype that will allow us to plug in the  windows azure  cloud provider, and use the  windows azure toolkit for android (  available at  github  ) to do all of the  basic cloud operations  :  upload  content to cloud storage,  browse  the storage,  download  or  delete  files in cloud storage. once those operations are implemented, we will see how to enable our android application to receive server  push notifications  .
