Microsoft Visual Studio vs Xamarin
Last updated: May 12, 2017
Microsoft Visual Studio is an integrated development environment (IDE) from Microsoft. Visual Studio is a comprehensive collection of developer tools and services to help you create apps for the Microsoft platform and beyond.
We created Xamarin because we knew there had to be a better way – a better way to design apps, to develop apps, to integrate apps, to test apps and more. We’re developers, so we know what developers want from mobile app development software: a modern programming language, code sharing across all platforms, prebuilt backend connectors and no-compromise native user interfaces.
