Xamarin Platform Review

Because of the C# programming language, we can train our .NET developers to learn the tool and develop mobile apps easily


What is our primary use case?

We have been using Xamarin for enterprise mobile application development. Primarily, we are targeting iPhone devices. This field mobility application helps end users to perform their duties and view 360 information about the work to be performed.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Because of the C# programming language, we can train our .NET developers to learn Xamarin and develop mobile apps easily. 
  • It helps us to easily integrate and implement Azure Cloud API services. 
  • We can track mobile usage with the help of the mobile device center.

What is most valuable?

We very much like the XAML design techniques, multiple layout and pages, MVVMCross support, and portability across different platforms.

What needs improvement?

  • It needs offline sync capabilities to store data on devices persistently. 
  • Security features and data analytics need to be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is a free product, so there is zero investment on licenses and IDE.

What other advice do I have?

This product is very easy to design and develop, and it is using C#. Microsoft is supporting this application, so product reliability increases.
