Visual Studio Tools for Xamarin
Apps built using Xamarin look and feel native, because they are.
Target all platforms
Single shared codebase for Android, iOS, and Windows
Share code everywhere. Use the same language, APIs and data structures for 75+% of app code across all mobile development platforms.
Develop on PC or Mac
World-class IDEs on your preferred OS
Use Visual Studio, a fully-featured and extensible IDE on Windows. Or, use Visual Studio for Mac, a rich IDE for macOS. Both offer UI designers, efficient code editing, debugging and publishing tools, and more.
Tools, cloud services, support and training
With a Visual Studio Standard or Annual Cloud subscription, you get additional
features in your Visual Studio IDE, as well as benefits such as access to on-demand content from the Xamarin University curriculum,
free tools and special offers, and up to $150 Azure credit each month. Members of the free Visual Studio Dev Essentials program
also enjoy select content from Xamarin University.
