Buddy provides developers with an easy-to-use cloud backend for Windows Phone apps, featuring APIs that deliver common app scenarios as a service. By writing apps against the Buddy web services (instead of building cloud components from scratch and maintaining a server infrastructure), developers can instantly add functionality such as global user accounts, photo albums, messaging, friends/groups functionality, push notifications and more by calling Buddy's API library.
With Buddy, developers can spend their time building their app UI/UX – which after all, is where users will fall in love with an app.
Members of the Nokia Premium Developer Program get 1,000,000 free API calls per month to the Buddy Cloud APIs. Buddy currently makes available 500,000 API calls a month for free, but with the Nokia Premium Developer Program, you will get an additional 500,000 free API calls a month during your program membership period, saving you up to $100 (USD) a month. (Overages will be charged to you by Buddy at their normal rates. See http://buddy.com/pricing/ for details.)
