Xamarin Apps

Needless to say that mastering all technologies seperatly is not cost-optimal. A development shop needs 3 development teams, 3 different skill sets, 3 different tool sets. Not only for development but also for maintenance.

Using Xamarin, a single team can develop Apps for the 3 platforms using a single development environment, using a single language: C#.

A recent App that was developed for a major Belgian bank allowed us to re-use about 90% of the code across the 3 different platforms. This included the re-use of screen designs by using the Xamarin Forms extension. Screens for the 3 different platforms can be designed with the familiar XAML markup language, the compilation produces the native screens.

When using Xamarin to develop native mobile apps, performance is sometimes even better than the platform specific solutions. Size is bigger of course, due to the stripped down version of the .NET CLR being included.
