As a fairly young tool, Xamarin uses .NET/C#, native libraries and is based on the Microsoft technology stack.

Launch Your MVP Quickly, Iterate Often

By Brian Geary on Aug 10, 2016 10:00:00 AM

There are well over 5 million apps available at the top app stores (Google Play, Apple App Store, Windows Store, Amazon Appstore, and BlackBerry World). Yet, less than .01 percent will be successful to any real degree. What does that tell us? Does it mean developers just aren't that good? Nope. Does it say there is no chance for an outsider to break into mobile development? Not at all. It simply means that the mobile app development world must rethink how apps are developed and brought to market. Here's how.
