Learn how you can use Visual Studio to write Android and iOS applications.
- [Instructor] Android development is typically done…using a Java IDE and the Java programming language…and targets only Android devices.…Native iOS development is done using the Xcode IDE…and either Objective-C or Swift programming languages…targeting only iOS devices.…With Xamarin, you use Visual Studio…to write all of your code in C#.…On Android it runs on a .NET virtual machine…provided by Xamarin that's similar to the Java…virtual machine used in native Android development.…
When you deploy, the shared runtime is also deployed…to the device if it isn't already present…which enable your application to run…on the Android platform.…Apple does not allow for virtual machines on its devices,…so your C# code is compiled down to native code…for the iOS platform.…Despite using C# to develop your cross-platform application,…you'll need to understand some concepts…in the iOS and Android architectures.…For example, when building your user interface…you'll be using the native UI frameworks.…
