Xamarin: for better Cross-platform Development by Jay June 8, 2016 < 1 Minute ReadAndroid & iOS operating systems are structurally distinct and often cause confusion for developers trying to make a one-fits-all app. With Hybrid platform, developers can create entirely native apps with a single set of codes, solving common development issues such as: Creating apps without the need to revise them Controlling app versions without losing actual semantics & purpose Developing an app without tweaking the code every time However, it’s difficult (if not impossible) for PhoneGap/Cordova apps to be both cross platform & leverage familiar native platform interfaces. This is where Xamarin cross-platform application development comes into the forefront. Major Advantages of Xamarin over Other Players are: Seamless sharing of the app logic across platforms Native UI–Xamarin Studio (IDE) supports code completion in C# High performance assembled code with total access to native APIs Build applications on C# The component store boasts of a host of free & paid components Xamarin, complies to the native code & uses native APIs to display the UI. So, a well-written Xamarin app takes advantage of all of the platform’s common interface paradigms & best practices. Hence, it’s recommended to adopt Xamarin over Hybrid solutions in order to achieve best-in-class UX (user experience).
