Insight into Mobile Development Using Xamarin

July 20, 2017

Cross-Platform Mobile Development

When deciding how to build your mobile application, whether you use a software development firm or build yourself, there are several different options available. If your plans include producing an iOS or Android application, there are many languages to consider. The native ones are always first to mind, Objective C, Swift and Java. If you are not a developer, you may less aware that there is another option with the Xamarin platform.

With the Xamarin platform developers can leverage existing C# language skills and utilize the native control toolkits to work across iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. Yes, a cross-platform mobile application that works on multiple platforms with a single code base.


At the first announcement, February 24, 2016, “Microsoft to acquire Xamarin and empower more developers to build apps on any device,” it details that by utilizing the Xamarin approach, development teams can take advantage of the productivity and power of .NET to build mobile apps and use C# to write to the full set of native API’s and mobile capabilities provided by each device platform.


As you further consider your platform of choice, Xamarin offers unique advantages and an array of built-in features of its own. You may have heard the term, “code once,” that is what the Xamarin platform offers. With less recoding and testing, you can expect more rapid development and increased cost efficiency. Between complete binding, Dynamic Language Features and cross-platform support for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone, applications can be written to share up to 90% of their code.
