Xamarin Mobile and Windows Phone 8
This simple and short article aims to introduce the Xamarin libraries for WP8 platform.
Xamarin.Mobile is a library that provides developers with a set of APIs for performing generic mobile functionality across various mobile platforms like WP, iOS & Android. Developers can also use the native APIs.
In addition, now developers can build native iOS and Android apps using C# code. Use your existing C# code and create cross platform applications using Xamarin, thus reducing your time to develop and improvise on time to market.
This documentation will provide an in depth understanding of how to create cross platform application using Xamarin: http://docs.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/application_fundamentals/building_cross_platform_applications
In the road map ahead, Xamarin plans to include notifications and accelerometer APIs.
