Reasons to Choose Xamarin for Mobile App Development

After the acquisition of Xamarin by Microsoft, views regarding the development of mobile application has changed. Some believe that professional developers will prefer Xamarin over Java or Swift. It is also said that this cross-platform implementation of Common Language Infrastructure and Microsoft .Net will defeat their competitors.


The primary goal of Microsoft company is to let developers use .Net platform and C# language on every existing device. Now it is possible and convenient to use Xamarin in the process of application development that uses C#-shared code.


Xamarin App Development is very useful for:


  • Creating native iOS, Windows and Android application.
  • Native user experience and performance.
  • Higher flexibility and reliability

Xamarin In Visual Studio


Xamarin has been added to the Visual Studio without any cost. It allows developing and publishing native applications for Android and iOS with F# or C# by directly applying Visual Studio. There is no restriction regarding the original size of the applications.


For Mac developers, Xamarin studio is available now. It is a benefit of Visual Studio Professional subscription. Developers are able to use the community edition of Xamarin Studio for free. They just have to download Xamarin Studio or Xamarin for Visual Studio.


Reasons To Choose Xamarin


Xamarin is better than other hybrid frameworks. Here are some reasons, why developers are choosing Xamarin over other platforms:


Native Experience


Native experience means access to native device’s OS characteristics and hardware. The need of native user experiences is dominating the market. Xamarin is a solution for cross-platform applications. It makes the coding possible on C#. This language is able to overcome the paradigm of Objective-C and Java.


Cross-Platform Features


Xamarin App Development suggested that while sharing the application logic, UI layers has to be emphasized. This layer must be stressed as calls for web services, back-end integration, input validation and interaction with the database. Developers are able to transfer around 70% of code across multiple platforms by applying C# in Xamarin.


Simple Sharing And Collaboration


With the help of Xamarin Component Store, users are able to exchange or switch the available components. This can be done with few lines of code, and allows the sharing of data easily. Those components include:


  • Cross-platform libraries
  • Third party web services
  • UI controls

Platform Originality


Xamarin has covered the unique characteristics of each platform. In addition to that, the platform involves Android and iOS-oriented .NET categories. This makes the sharing of program’s core logic possible. Code sharing will be done within the rest of popular platforms.


Developer’s Availability


The benefit of availability of developers is directly related to the acquisition of Xamarin by Microsoft. It has a community of great developers. This is the fact that Microsoft has sufficient developers to support any app development company. Except this, it is easier for developers to study C# in comparison to other cross-platform languages. Now, chances to become professional app developers has been increased.


Rapid Development


Xamarin guarantees rapid application development with shortest frames of time. The reason behind that, users of this platform will no longer be needed to search for SDK, development environment and native coding. They just have to code using C# and for respective native packages, they just have to add some binding code. It is not required to recall or duplicate the process of examining, designing and coding.


Cost-Effective


Xamarin is one of the best solutions when companies decided not to spend much money on the app development. There is no need of investing in the development of infrastructure that is native. In addition to that, companies do not have to spend money on a separate team of the native app developers. Because they just needed one team of Xamarin developers to meet their requirements and goals.


API Integration


When it comes to software or services of the 3rd party, API plays an important role. It is possible to bind different APIs due to:


  • Xamarin.Android for UIs and APIs of Android
  • Xamarin.Mac for UIs and APIs of Mac
  • Xamarin.iOS for UIs and APIs of iOS

Suitable class architecture and portable class libraries allow sharing of codes. This feature guarantees great user experience by applying native access to the device.


Conclusion


Xamarin App Development prefers up-to-date C#’s development technologies. It uses original UI and API tools. It believes in satisfactory user experience, lower costs and rapid development process. In the beginning, companies can add Xamarin as a useful tool only. They don’t have to completely replace the native development with Xamarin. Companies can take time and decide on the basis of their requirement and project. Eventually, when companies get familiar with the flexibility and benefits of Xamarin, they will replace their native tools.
