I just purchased a business license for Xamarin so that I can upload data from an Android tablet to a cloud SQL Server 2008 database.
I have spent three very frustrating days trying to use walkthroughs and examples such as the following

Is there an easier way to do this than a complicated WCF service? The image shows the different projects available.

Are there template projects out there that make WCF services easier?
