We already have new ones application programmers in our company to develop apps with Microsoft's XamarinDevelops native applications for Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
XamarinIt is one of the most powerful programming languages today, being among the top three in the language for developing native applications. Its versatility and creative capacity is unsurpassed, although the level of difficulty is high when it comes to programming, you will need many hours of learning and an expert to advise you.
Native Android and iOS applications using Xamarin
Create multi-platform native applications on a shared C# code base. Use the same IDE, language, and APIs everywhere. This will lower the cost of creation, since an app development with Xamarin can be supported for all platforms.
What are the three main advantages of app development with Xamarin?
- Native user interface, native API access and native performance.
- Anything you can do in Objective-C, Swift or Java you can do in C# with Xamarin.
- Navigate to applications that are on the cutting edge with support for new OS versions.
Native user interface
Xamarin's applications are built with standard, native user interface controls. Applications not only look the way the end user expects, they also behave the way the end user does.
Access to the native API
Xamarin applications have access to the full spectrum of functionality exposed by the underlying platform and device, including platform-specific capabilities such as iBeacons and Android Fragments.
Applications built with Xamarin take advantage of platform-specific hardware acceleration and are compiled for native performance. This cannot be achieved with solutions that interpret runtime code.
So you can understand the ability to native app development with Xamarin in this programming system, we provide you with some examples developed at Xamarin.
Marketwatch is one of the most visited financial portals in the world. In its application you can see all the financial information in real time, all the data is connected by API systems to facilitate an unbeatable response time.
It's also possible to do video game development for Apps. One of the main award-winning games for iPad is developed at Xamarin. Wired Magazine said it could be one of the best games developed for the iPad.
Bastion is one of the best games in the Appstore, you can download this game from the AppStore.
How is C# built?
More types, less typing: C# uses a type inference to give developers with Xamarin more security in fewer keystrokes, without repetitive type annotations.
Language level async: asynchronous programming keeps applications sensitive. In Objective-C, Swift and Java, async requires callbacks and manual accounting. C#'s language level support makes async faster.
Stronger typologies, smarter tools: generics ensure that collections and other types of compounds are used safely, without the need for releases or comments. Xamarin's tools understand intent better thanks to richer types, with benefits such as ubiquitous code completion.
First-class features: in Java for Android, the "lambdas" are not available. In Objective-C, the "lambdas" are extremely cumbersome. In C#, this typology could not be simpler, making functional programmers feel at home.
What development system do I need?
If you need to develop a complex app with API connections to external data and databases, as well as video game development, you will most likely need a language that is as native as possible, in this Xamarin is perfect.
If you need to create a corporate app with the information of your company and some contact form, we advise you the hybrid development such as Ionic Framework, since this system will be much less expensive, both in time and price. The same application in Xamarin for android and ios could have a budget cost over 10,000 euros, however, the same application developed in iOS and Android with Ionic would be over 2,500 euros. We will advise you according to the type of idea you need to develop, you can leave us in the budget form all the details, a team of experts will evaluate your idea and the best way to develop it.
