Xamarin is a powerful tool that allows us to create native iOS and Android apps without the costs of traditional native Swift and Java development, and without the compromise of hybrid.
Xamarin is a great framework for developing cross platform apps with benefits all round - for the client who wants their app on multiple platforms without the cost of multiple apps, and the developer who only has to develop and maintain a single code base instead of managing multiple.
If you want to create an app for iOS and Android, Xamarin offers some great benefits, though native development should still be considered, as it is best in some circumstances.
Xamarin is a good option if you want to build for one platform now, but are looking to release to more in the future.
Native iOS apps
Xamarin iOS apps are the same as iOS specific development using Swift or Objective-C. But it uses (mostly) the same code as Android, making it quicker to build to high standards across both platforms, while retaining native iPhone and iPad features.
Native Android apps
Building an Android app in Xamarin gives you all the possibilities of native development using Java or C#. You still get native Android UI and access to any Android API.
