Overall Satisfaction with Xamarin

We used Xamarin to develop cross-platform apps for taxi aggregation app in android, windows and IOS. It is used by my project team including android, IOS and Windows people to create applications in single code base, and it helped us to write quality code that runs consistently on different platorms
  • It allows us to develop apps using single codebase which runs on different platforms.
  • They need to work in providing quality support to customer queries
  • It had very positive impact on our product, such as faster development and faster release
Xamarin is a good platform compared to Cordova, as it gives better API access, documentation and customer support as well as a robust community. It allows you to develop code using native Visual Studio and helps the developer to reuse the codebase for different platforms, versus Apache Cordova.
It is well suited when you have a single codebase, tight deadlines for the product release, and you have less developers to tackle the problems that can occur in testing and release level. It is less appropriate in situations where you want apps like system-level tasks which may not be allowed by Xamarin

Evaluating Xamarin and Competitors

Yes - Apache cordove is replaced by Xamarin as good support documentation and other lot of benefits
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
  • Vendor Reputation

Xamarin Implementation

Change management was a small part of the implementation and was well-handled

Xamarin Support

Kept well informed
Support cares about my success
Poor followup
Escalation required
Need to explain problems multiple times
Slow Initial Response
I was facing a problem when the IOS api for camera is not working so I contacted them on phone call then they sent me some examples and full documentation link for that API
