A mobile application which doesn't use Internet services is becoming an increasing rarity. Additionally, there are more pressures to make classic web based services into more flexible platforms which provide services to a multitude of devices. The goal of this presentation is to survey a small list of mobile service types (RESTful APIs, cloud PUSH, offline support, and sync) and provide concrete examples of how to use AeroGear on Android to interact with them while still preserving a great user experience.
