    I use it since 2013 and have made decent iOS apps with it.

    But not with xamarin forms. Dont use it, bunch of marketing gimmic crap, useful for only toy apps.

    @Vanegas9090 My friends say react native is pretty good, but I prefer xamarin cuz I dont like JS.

    Other than that there are QT (may be hard), flutter (immature), Unity (3d/graphical apps only), or native development (proper way of doing it)

    Don't swallow the trap of Xamarin.Forms, it's the worst part of Xamarin.
    Make all UI in platform specific projects, an all logic on the shared project (like local database, API calls, processing, etc...). This will help you to build truly native apps with 50% - 75% of shared code (depends on the app and your implementation)..

    Dependency injection might be helpful in many scenarios (call from shared project, but each platform uses its own implementation)..

    Xamarin is really good experience.

    I haven't touched, xamarin for a while, one of those geeks who tried the first version of xamarin
    At that time, it was so buggy, didn't have a lot of features, and visual studio just kep crashing in my AI training machine
    (i7, 32gb ram)
    I wonder if it is reliable building cross platform apps with it.
    I loved the idea of it, but the bugginess and sloppyness made me stop using it even tho I love c#

    If you experience wierd bugs and cant figure out how to fix it; clean project, close visual studio and restart your computer. Sometimes this is the only solution.

    Hey, sorry if I'm interrupting but have you tried our lord and saviour Flutter? It's free to try, all you have to do is to believe. 🍻

    iOS will be cracking down on non-native builds in coming years. Running into that problem now as Disney’s no longer approving of my build on react native and demanding it be swift

    Kotlin Multiplatform is getting so hot right now. Native compile + use MVP pattern to do different view layer for each platform. It's a similar approach to Xamarin in many ways, less mature, but the overall ecosystem looks very promising.
