Xamarin is one of the most popular cross-platform application development frameworks

With the demand for cross-platform mobile app development solutions on the rise, the number of available tools is likewise increasing. Xamarin is one of the most popular frameworks for creating cross-platform applications for iOS, Android, and other platforms.


Xamarin is the only platform that offers complete API coverage and extensive code-sharing capabilities across iOS, Android, and Windows apps, giving businesses the potential to reach 2.6 billion devices using C#. The Xamarin framework simplifies cross-platform app development, allowing developers to maximize code reuse and address the challenges associated with separate coding languages and UI paradigms.


Launched in 2011, Xamarin gained increased credibility after being acquired by Microsoft in 2016. Businesses can reap the benefits of this robust and reliable platform to quickly and effectively launch their apps on multiple devices.


At Chudovo, our Mobile engineers leverage cross-platform mobile development frameworks to create native-looking applications for multiple platforms, such as Android and iOS, with a single codebase. This streamlined process offers businesses a cost-effective, time-efficient solution for their mobile app development needs.

Xamarin App Development

Xamarin is a robust, enterprise-level, cross-platform application development framework leveraging C# and .NET technologies. This advanced technology allows businesses to create dynamic and productive applications with world-class performance.

  • C# Businesses can benefit from writing their apps in C#, as existing code written in C# can be quickly and easily ported to iOS, Android, and Windows platforms with the help of Xamarin. This streamlined porting process means businesses can save time and money while creating the needed applications.

  • Utilize MVC or MVVVM design patterns. Businesses can develop their application's User Interface using the Model/View/Controller pattern. It allows them to identify which parts of the application require native user interface elements of each platform (iOS, Android, Windows, Mac) and use this as a guideline to split the application into two components: "Core" and "User-Interface." It provides professional developers with a more efficient and effective way of creating user interfaces.

  • Build native UIs. Each OS has its own application that provides a distinct user-interface layer for businesses. On iOS, UIKit APIs offer native-app experiences, and the Xamarin iOS Designer helps create visually appealing UIs. For Android, Android Views help create native-look applications, and Xamarin's UI Designer can help build them. Windows users can create presentation layers with XAML in Visual Studio or Blend's UI Designer, while Mac users will use Storyboards in Xcode. All these tools offer professional user experiences to create engaging applications.
Xamarin App Development Approaches
Two methods of Xamarin App Development exist for mobile business platforms such as Android and iOS: Xamarin. Forms and Xamarin Native.
Xamarin. Forms
Xamarin. Forms
Xamarin.Forms allow developers to attach C# logic to a visual interface designed and shared across multiple platforms, such as Android, iOS, and Windows.
Xamarin Native
Xamarin Native
Alternatively, Xamarin Native allows developers to craft custom applications tailored to individual mobile platforms like iOS, Windows, and Android.
If you are s looking to create a top-tier mobile application using Xamarin, ChuDovo can save you time and help you to achieve the best possible outcome.

Benefits of Using Xamarin
Xamarin is the leading cross-platform development tool, boasting a community of one million developers dedicated to improving the software. This powerful software provides businesses with a reliable, professional solution for their development needs.
A
Faster Development Process
Xamarin is ideal for business professionals searching for a highly advanced and powerful app to meet their needs. This sophisticated approach facilitates the sharing of code across multiple mobile platforms, resulting in faster app development. Through C# and .NET, developers can simultaneously write one single application logic across all three platforms, significantly increasing production speed. Furthermore, Xamarin forms a second approach for advanced versions, allowing for rapid prototyping and the creation of apps with limited platform-specific features. As developers can reuse code, the development of apps is accelerated, providing a more efficient development cycle.
B
Cost-Effective
In Xamarin, developers benefit from not having to build code from scratch and the streamlined debugging process. The single technological stack and reusable code reduce time and effort, allowing businesses to release software faster. A single team is needed, eliminating the need for multiple groups and additional expenses. Xamarin also features Visual Studio design environments and UX design tools, resulting in a superior UI and user experience. It is designed to simplify and speed up the process, giving businesses an edge.
C
Code Sharing across multiple platforms
Businesses looking to create native apps require developers to have a firm grasp of multiple languages, such as Java, Objective C, and Swift. However, the code created for a specific platform cannot be run on others. Xamarin is an efficient and cost-effective solution for this, as it enables sharing up to 75% of the code across different platforms. This cross-platform software facilitates app database interactions, web service scale, backend integrations, input validations, and more. By leveraging the power of Xamarin, businesses can benefit from smooth native app development.
D
Integrated testing
Xamarin and Azure cloud offers comprehensive solutions to businesses for monitoring and testing app performance. Native app developers often face challenges in testing, updating, and maintaining. With Xamarin and Azure, these tasks become more straightforward, allowing developers to achieve source code excellence. Xamarin Test Cloud and Xamarin Test Recorder enable automated tests on real devices in the cloud, helping developers identify any performance issues before release. Additionally, the Azure cloud offers a comprehensive app development environment that facilitates high scalability, cost-effectiveness, and high availability for rich mobile apps.
E
Simplified maintenance
Xamarin is a powerful cross-platform application that simplifies maintenance and updates for businesses.
