Xamarin is a framework for creating cross-platform mobile applications using C# with Visual Studio. There are numerous frameworks available for cross-platform app development. They make use of HTML and JavaScript. Using JS libraries, we may create apps such as a website for a mobile app with the help of this framework. The website is wrapped in a container which gives it the impression of a native app.

Xamarin allows us to develop in C# using a class library and runtime that works across multiple platforms such as iOS, Windows, and Android.

Xamarin integrates all the native platform’s capabilities and adds numerous powerful features of its own which are as follows:

  • Complete binding for the underlying SDKs
  • Objective-C, Java, C, and C++ Interop
  • Modern language constructs
  • Robust Base Class Library (BCL)
  • Modern Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
  • Mobile cross-platform support

Key Features:

  • Xamarin allows you to natively include Objective-C, Java, and C++ libraries. It enables us to reuse all third-party codebases written in Java, Objective-C or C++.
  • Xamarin significantly reduces the time of developing mobile apps.
  • Xamarin offers a vast library of class libraries.
  • Xamarin provides comprehensive compile-time verification. As a result, there will be fewer runtime errors and higher-quality programs.
