Xamarin Cross-Platform App Development what does it look like?
Cross-platform mobile development Xamarin is an alternative to native mobile development. Developers use it when working in a Microsoft environment using C# instead of creating different code for each platform. The apps share the same code base to support all the features native mobile apps have.
Xamarin has also a store to integrate third-party libraries, back-end components, controls and services to shorten the development time.
You need Xamarin Development Services when you encounter one of the following cases:
- You target all OSs but you want to release your app on several platforms within a shorter development time with the same quality.
- You plan to save on app support and maintenance. As your apps share the same code, you need one developer instead of two or three for each platform.
- You need a Windows app. Even though Windows OS is not that popular on smartphones, it is installed on many tablets being an alternative to both Android and iOS.
