Apps built using Xamarin look and feel native, because they are.
Native User Interfaces
Apps built using Xamarin contain standard, native user interface controls. Apps not only look the way the end user expects, but they behave that way too.
Native API Access
Apps built using Xamarin have access to the full spectrum of functionality exposed by the underlying platform and device, including platform-specific capabilities like ARKit and Android Multi-Window mode.
Apps built using Xamarin leverage platform-specific hardware acceleration, and are compiled for native performance. This can’t be achieved with solutions that interpret code at runtime.
Target all platforms
Single shared codebase for Android, iOS, and Windows
Share code everywhere. Use the same language, APIs and data structures for 75+% of app code across all mobile development platforms.
Use Visual Studio, a fully-featured and extensible IDE on Windows. Or, use Visual Studio for Mac, a rich IDE for macOS. Both offer UI designers, efficient code editing, debugging and publishing tools, and more.
With a Visual Studio Standard or Annual Cloud subscription, you get additional features in your Visual Studio IDE, as well as benefits such as access to on-demand content from the Xamarin University curriculum, free tools and special offers, and up to $150 Azure credit each month. Members of the free Visual Studio Dev Essentials program also enjoy select content from Xamarin University.
