This book is intended for mobile software developers who are fed up with having three different code sets for the same application. If you want to put your code on all mobile platforms with minimum fuss, and just want to develop but haven't got the time to be digging too far into a particular platform, this is the book for you. Some basic knowledge of C# is assumed.What You Will LearnCreate a responsive UI, modified to suit the target platformUnderstand the basics of designing an application, and the considerations needed for target platformsConstruct a complete app using a single codebaseDevelop attractive user interfacesBind information to the backend code to generate a reactive applicationDesign an effective Portable Class Library (PCL)Include a Windows Mobile application within your standard Xamarin.Forms applicationExtend your applications using the Xamarin.Forms Labs libraryIn Detail

Xamarin provides a developer with tools to develop effective mobile solutions using the .NET framework. Part of the toolchain is an IDE called Xamarin Studio. Even if you use the Xamarin toolchain, you will still need three different user interface construction sets.

This book will show you, with fully-coded examples, how to use both the Xamarin toolchain and the Xamarin.Forms library to code for three platforms at once. It goes from the concept and design of an application to its execution. You will be introduced to common application features such as push notifications, UI, maps, databases, and web services. Next, you will learn to plan the UI using Xamarin.Forms for cross-mobile platform development, and move on to creating custom buttons, extending the UI, and connecting to social sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
