Hi Sebastiano

Well done. I've given it a basic edit for wiki style and fixed a few grammatical errors, but otherwise it is fine as is. Thanks - I think this sort of thing is VERY useful.

In terms of room for improvement ---

If I was to add to this I'd expand on "Creating the Windows Phone application" section because its slightly ambiguous in that it implies you create the Windows Phone 8 app through the service (or update an existing one), while actually I think what is happening is that you configure the service for WP8 through the site only, then you create the app in Visual studio as a separate action. Hope that makes sense!

I might also explain how the code "works" at high level and hence the format of the code to represent items - ie you're creating a table using

public class TodoItem { 
public int Id { get; set; }
public string Text { get; set; }
public TodoItem()
await App.MobileService.GetTable<TodoItem>().InsertAsync(item).ContinueWith(t => ....

However the way most of us learned to create tables you use an SQL query. So I think its worth either explaining or pointing to docs which cover the "high level theory" on how you work with SQL tables on WP.

Perhaps also add references to other useful documents you found on the topic?

It is pretty good as is, so please consider the above as "suggestions".
