We have been thinking for a while in creating a simple mobile application to show our potential clients what we can do in terms of application development and Drupal integration.
We wanted to keep it simple but in the end, we also wanted to have a very high quality application.
That is why we started to think in building native applications for each OS, but we do not have the time or the people in order to pull this out successfully, that was, until we heard about Xamarin.
For those of you who have not heard about it, Xamarin is a company co-founded by Miguel de Icaza, that allows to code applications for each mobile platform, using C#. It has native bindings for the entire API of each platform, and you can do pretty much everything you would do programming it in Objective-C (iOS) or Java (Android).
So after playing with it a while, we felt confident about building this app, and learning new things for our client’s mobile applications.
