Kinvey ( is a cloud development platform that enables developers and enterprise to host and operate backend systems, without having to manage or scale physical hardware. Support for Windows Phone 8 has been absent until now, thanks to software development firm Penrillian. The company has developed a Windows Phone 8 DLL for Kinvey.

This is important news for any developer who's actively looking for a solution, as this now makes Kinvey seen a viable option. The idea behind the DLL is for it to be dropped it into the Windows Phone project. You can then initialise it with the app key and secret, which will subsequently offer a range of service classes without having to write anything to get it all working. Genius.

So how does one get their hands on the DLL? Head on over to Github for more details and the download links. If you require more information on Kinvey and what the company can do for your apps, be sure to check out the website.
