With many, if not most, custom applications needing an accompanying mobile app, it is no surprise that Microsoft continues to invest in and enhance the cross-platform Xamarin platform.
The .NET conference of last week had large segments devoted to Xamarin and we thought this was a good time to take a look at Xamarin.Forms 5.0. Though it is still in preview, it is worth upgrading your projects to this pre-release or a least getting oriented as to what’s coming in the next general release.
Particularly noticeable is more tools to make an aesthetic app experience, with solid and gradient Brushes, CarouselView, Shapes, SwipeView, RadioButton and drag-and-drop. Though these have been available in some previous previews, Xamarin.Forms 5.0 will bring these features to a stable release.
