A development delight, if you know what you're doing

Nice unified development environment.

Pros

Xamarin comes in a few flavours. There is Xamarin.Forms which is a totally unified development experience across all apps. You're more limited & restricted in what you can do, but at the payoff of being able to develop once across all platforms. Xamarin.IOS and Xamarin.Android are C# wrappers for the native libraries, so you're basically writing a native app but in C# and are able to share code between platforms using a portable class library or a .net standard library. Also it's totally free and backed by Microsoft. They keep up to date with the latest libraries really well and has large community support.

Cons

There is a bit of a learning curve with all Xamarin - and certain levels of understanding really help you out. But it can be confusing when you're looking at examples and unsure of how it applies to your own code. Xamarin.Forms has a lot of restrictions, but if your goal is to make a simple native feeling form-y application and don't want to do anything specific, it can save a lot of development time. With Xamarin.IOS and Xamarin.Android you're in a bit of trouble if no one has created bindings for a library you want to use, you can do it yourself but it's not well documented and can be confusing. If you don't like Visual Studio and C# this is not for you.

Probably the best multi-platform framework

To state upfront: I have experience with both native Xamarin and .Forms variants, using Visual Studio as the choice IDE. Development is straightforward and there is plenty of learning material available to enable even mid level .Net developers to become productive in a matter of days. From a product owner's perspective this is the go-to tool when having to target multiple platforms. You get the advantage of being able to target device & platform specific features without the pains of having to use web containers like Cordova or Ionic frameworks) For the standard developer, the biggest pain is the debugging experience. This is usually slow (for instance it lacks the native Android's "Fast deployment" feature) and due to compiler optimizations, Intelisense will barely work (you don't get listings of the available properties & methods, while some property values will not be accessible at all) - although this can be mitigated by using a good logging tool. To add further, the (relatively) new Xamarin Forms will further constraint the developer to use a unified implementation, making the overall product even more maintainable (although this may have limitations when converting existing native apps). All in all, this is a matured product that should always be considered when targeting multi-platform software.

Pros

- First and foremost, it's portability that is driving the market. Being able to write a single implementation which targets multiple platforms is extremely cost effective - Being backed up by .Net (extremely common among the software development community) it's far easier to maintain a Xamarin solution (as opposed to having to find native platform developers) - Hardware support is really at an all time high - even hardware producers (e.g.: Motorola) are putting out Xamarin SDKs.

Cons

- Perhaps the only true disadvantage is that there is always a delay before it gets updated to support the latest platform update - Debugging can become tedious and I've seen this especially on the native implementations due to Xamarin's less-than-optimal way of reporting an issue (i.e.: you may end up in situations where an error message related to an Android run-time was actually caused by some small layout issue where a needed element is not present)

Best cross platform to deliver great mobile apps

Pros

We can reuse source code to a great extent speeding up the engineering cycle. Its look and feel and behavior is very close to native app. Also due to its cross-platform application, Xamarin makes maintenance and updates easier.

Cons

With Xamarin, you have to use only the components provided by the platform and some .Net open source resources. Xamarin's main benefit is the ability to share your code across the platforms. Yet, you can only share the logic, UI code will be mostly platform-specific. This makes building games, rich custom UI, or complex animations in Xamarin pretty pointless.

Use something else

Cross-platform development.

Pros

It provides native support using language you already know (C#). If you know C# very deeply then maybe this would right choice for you.

Cons

Can't do high level UI stuff. Not cross-platform as they advertise it is. you will end up doing same code for each platform. I'd do native rather than this.

Best cross platform tool for IOS & Android development

Pros

The best thing is it is owned by Microsoft so you will get regular updates, tutorial, and blogs for understanding new features, security measures introduced. You need not to hire separate developers for IOS & Android & it will eventually reduce development time. You can also develop native apps along with cross-platform. Development is basically C# based so learning is easy for developers working on Microsoft Technologies

Cons

Only IDE available for development is Microsoft Visual Studio costing of which may be a concern for smaller organizations.

Best cross platform

Mobile application development and designing.

Pros

Xamarin is the best available cross platform for mobile application development. The platform works with #C and .Net frameworks to design stylish and smother applications. Support forums are easily available of this. 90 percent code is shareable in pcl class library.

Cons

Xamarin provides limited access for the open source library functions which can be improve. When comes to iOS development it has support limitations.

best mobile development platform for IOS, Windows and Android

Xamarin help us to have a single code base for our mobile application which is easier to maintain. Our developers can now focus on a single programming language which has more time for mastery.

Pros

I like the most on this software is the capability to create mobile application on android and IOS with a single code base. Xamarin has rich control libraries which is compatible for IOS and Android devices which save a lot of development time.

Cons

Xamarin is not beginner friendly. A user must have a fundamental knowledge on application developement with android and ios.

Invaluable for Cross-Platform Development

Pros

Xamarin is now integrated with Visual Studio and together they make programming, especially for mobile, extremely easy. Writing code once and being able to share it across Windows, Android, iOS and MacOS is something I didn't think would be possible when I started coding. Xamarin is a life saver.

Cons

I love this software. I don't have anything bad to say about it.

Xamarin, the best option to develop a mobile application for different platforms

Pros

- The best thing about Xamarin is that with the same programming language, I can develop applications on all the platforms of the market, as it says: "Write once, execute on all platforms". - In case of an error, the correction will be applied on all platforms. - The applications developed are completely native

Cons

This platform uses C # language for application development, so those who do not have experience with this language will have to learn it, the good news is that it is a friendly language, easy to learn and manage

Xamarin Power

In all the occasions in which I have developed using Xamarin, the practicality was always the most important consideration if it is especially desired for data-driven applications, if more sophisticated applications such as games are desired, it is better to use native tools. Xamarin will not disappoint him if he used it intelligently, he can also put a lot of integration with other VIsual Studio projects and not die in the process.

Pros

The big virtue of Xamarin is simplicity and interporability, if you are a C# programmer with regular skills on MVC and Mobile Development you can create functional apps in a short time. The capability to publish your apps on Android, Mac OS and if needed Windows Mobile, allows you to enable enterprise level apps for must osf your expected users. Also common shared code for your projects reduce the amount of work you need. Current templates covers must of common use cases and all you need is customize your user experience.

Cons

The big contra is that user interfaces are not so easey to customize as several advanced features are sacrified in order to achieve multiplatform capabilities. Also as expected apps are not so fast as the native ones created with Android Studio or Xcode.

Great for building applications across multiple platforms

Pros

Building Xamarin apps allows me to deploy mobile apps to both android and iOS. It saves me a ton of development time.

Cons

The UI code is still platform specific, and often tough to work with as you are not working with the native language of the platform. Though the time saved from deploying the same business logic to multiple platforms makes Xamarin a home run.

very functional multiplatform to create your mobile applications with c # and .net languages.

I began to develop in this multiplatform since I started programming, with it I saw opportunities to provide my code and test the applications in the multiplatform that it offers.

Pros

Since Xamarin allows packages / add-ons from the nuget.org website, or can install any package from nuget.org, which saves writing code for these functions. It is a very comfortable way when developing projects.

Cons

The Visual Studio emulator is a little slow and has a somewhat confusing intrefaz, besides that it consumes many resources in a computer.

Adoption of the platform was seamless.

Easy to deploy cross platform mobile applications.

Pros

Xamerin primarily chosen because of our familiarity with C#. It is a lesser learning curve if you already have the c# resources. We have found it very easy from start to finish to deployment of mobile applications

Cons

One problem we keep running into is remote build server for iOS builds. The connection to the remote build server gets disconnect or can not connect we have to remove temp files to get the connection back

Xamarin is easy to learn but could be better

Xamarin is not bad. However, its not the best. I personally would just use Visual Studios since it is free and receive updates often.

Pros

The text editor to go to if you are new and looking to make Android or IOS apps. Xamarin makes it possible to develop smartphone apps without learning all that technical know-how. All you need is basic knowledge of C#

Cons

Unfortunately, going the easy way isnt necessarily the best way. So, Xamarin let you take shortcuts to make an app, but it can lead to struggles with the build. Also, if youre using Xamarin free version then you will be very limited compared to the full version.

The way to go for cross platform development if you're a .NET house

Pros

We currently use Xamarin for both mobile application development, and we are looking at using it for development of OSX apps too. Development is easy once you have a bit of knowledge, getting your head around the way to code in Xamarin is relatively easy, and after that you can develop in .NET (we use C#) without many issues. Adding features which require native code is easy enough too, and wrappers are easy to find to do this for you.

Cons

Xamarin forms are still not as good as we would like, so we tend to produce native user interfaces for each platform. We have hope that forms will reach a good enough standard to be used in most cases soon though.

Xamarin is best cross Android application platform

Development of Android applications.

Pros

Xamarin an efficient cross application development platform works with #C and dot net frameworks. Xamarin form design is pretty much attractive as we can code it to make brilliant UI. There is a certified Developer course of Xamarin from official University. Overall you can build an outstanding application in low cost.

Cons

This platform also has some limitations as for iOS it support limited functionality as compare to Android. You must need proficiency in #C and dot net to get into Xamarin.

Xamarin - One Code, All Platforms

Pros

Being able to code mobile application by just using C# and then you can publish to Android, iOS and even Windows Phone is just simply incredible.

Cons

This technology is still young and may still have some bugs. Also the Visual Studio emulator is verrry slow, so I just use a physical hardware on my development.

Multi-platform support for C# developers

Pros

As soon as you are having some experience with C# and Microsoft development ecosystem, Xamarin would be your default selection for a development of any iPhone, Android and Windows application. Platform has evolved significant through the years and nowadays it is difficult to think of another way to develop native cross-platform applications without it.

Cons

Heavily reliant on Microsoft ecosystem. Might be troublesome for new comers. There are many other 'free' alternatives to it.

Cyborg :)

This is single handedly best thing to happen to a .net developer. Because thanks to it we dont need to learn any more software language. One language above all else.

Pros

We are happy to develop with it because it let us develop for multiple platforms without work for each of them one by one.

Cons

When you up to big project it can be a big hustle to deal with render time.

Pros

This software is easy to use, You can easily learn how to use this software while using it. I strongly recommend this software for the android developers.

Cons

In this software, you must update some libraries manually and also it lacks the IDE functions, like shortcuts while coding. That function is one of the most needed by programmers like me.

Develop the mobile application without knowing java

Xamarin is the option for a mobile application to work on any platform, taking into account that c# is a very intuitive language

Pros

Application developed by Microsoft, which allows the development of mobile applications for both Android devices, Windows Phones obviously and for IOS, just by knowing the C # programming language, regardless of whether you use the programming language which characterizes the device, with this program the applications are still 100% native, allowing thus cover the entire life cycle of an app.

Cons

Sometimes access is difficult to use Objective C libraries, they should improve that. So far I have nothing more to tell you.

Great tool for cross platform application development.

Pros

Developing mobile apps in C# is fantastic, and having the ability to deploy to different platforms from a single code base is such a time saver.

Cons

It's not quite as simple as writing one line of code for both iOS and Android. You do need to sometimes have separate, platform specific code. Fortunately Xamarin has quite a few tools to make that easier. Also, developing for iOS means you need to have an Apple machine. Might be a few more hoops to jump through for people coming from a purely C#, .NET, Mircosfot centric environment who want to expand into iOS.

Xamarin is cool to save time developing mobile apps

As a developper in .NET technologies, Xamarin is realy easy to user because you already know the language. You dont have to learn multiple language to develop on differents plateforms like iOS, Android or Windows mobile. You only have to learn whats the best practice in each platform concerning the design and navigation. The core is the same for each apps. The deployment is fast and easy!

Pros

The learning curve is small. Easy to use. Easy to deploy. Your core code is used with each platforms. Can save a lot of time and one developer can build apps on all platforms

Cons

Costly because you have to pay for iOS and Android licence seperatly.

Cant go wrong with it

It has its occasional hiccups but nothing out of ordinary.

Pros

Great dev platform for multi platform deployment. I chose it as it works with C#. Now that its free after Microsoft acquisition its a no brainer.

Great platform to develop mobile applications

Xamarin compiles the C # code in binaries that run natively on each platform, unlike doing them with PhoneGap for example

Pros

Great platform to develop mobile applications, Xamarin compiles the C # code in binaries that run natively on each platform

Native apps with single code base

We've reviewed Xamarin against React Native, and the later was more in line with our needs, but Xamarin is still a great solution!

Pros

Xamarin is a robust solution for writing native apps for many platforms using a single code base. It has a wide range of features and support all platforms you'll need.

Cons

It doesn't target web by default. It uses .NET, which may not be desirable in some cases.

Xamarin Cross plat form for mobile app

I have done to or three app with Xamarin but the look and feel which provide in swift are different and if some bug comes then we have to code for specific OS like if i have created for IOS it graphics seems not good and it hard to code for each and every platform

Pros

There is one language to learn and it support almost every mobile platform like Microsoft,Android and window so it very issue to maintain one code for three plat form there no need to learn language like swift and object c.

Cons

Still the language is like java-script code but it is hard to developer new feature which very easy in object C and it is familiar with visual studio so if i do not know studio then it is difficult job.

Complicated But Cool

If you want to take your .NET code to other platforms, Xamarin is the tool to do so. The only problem is that it involves a fairly steep learning curve, especially if you aren't familiar with the native development environments of iOS and Android. If this were easier to use, it would get a full five-star review.

Reduces development and maintenance time significantly

In one of the project I needed that complex algorithms and business layer to be developed on independent of platform. I used Xamarin and this reduces significant time in maintaining the code for various mobile platforms significantly.

A framework which is really a Developer Time Saver

Overall Faster Development in ios and android,helps in doing faster POC.

Pros

I used to be a native app developer After using this framework helps me in not only develop application for multiple platform in a single shot. Really you just need to think about you buisness logic for application no need to think about development process for all platform.

Cons

Its good if it is not language specific to c# because As a native developer need to learn c# fundamentals to code.

Very useful app creating software

Pros

The comaptibility of different versions using xamarin is very helpful. Developing and trnsferring codes across different versions is very suitable.

Cons

The lack of suitable places to find solutions when you are stuck making a code is one of the drawbacks of this software.

Good tool for quick mobile app development for multi platform devices

Pros

One of the great tool for making the mobile application that can be built to iOS and Android application. Easy to compile the xamarin code and the IDE is easy to use.

Cons

- No support for top programming languages - Even through the elements are built in native code, the fast and responsiveness is not that much great when compared with the native application development

Unmatched Cross-Platform Development Apps

After Microsoft acquired them now it's completely free!

Pros

Because of its cross-platform application, Xamarin makes maintenance and updates super easy. Source code can be reused it extends the engineering cycle. C# runs natively on all platforms too.

Cons

Complex UI option is not possible here. In that regards visual studio can do a better job. And the user interface seemed difficult at first. Took a long time to get used to it.
