Azure MobileApp Custom Authentication VS Asp.Net Identity

I'm trying to keep up with the recent advancement in Windows Azure in Mobile back-end.

Microsoft claims to provide OOB functionality for custom authentication. I started using this library, I am surprised that only feature available from this library is to generate token. Thats all! I believe Default template for Web API Asp.Net Identity is a better implementation and provides complete functionality.

Mobile App has to be something better than close to metal Web API. Am I missing something here, could you please show me the right direction?
