iOS 7 and Xamarin: Ready when you are




Apple released iOS 7 last week and within 6 hours Xamarin released Xamarin.iOS 7, including support for new APIs such as iBeacons, UIKit Dynamics, and Textkit. We have several resources to help you make the most of iOS 7 in your apps. Check out our introduction to new iOS 7 APIs and the overview of iOS 7 user interface changes, download several samples, and watch the recording from our iOS 7 Guided Tour webinar.

In addition, Mike Bluestein will publish several blogs covering the most exciting APIs in details, starting with the Play "Find the Monkey" with iOS 7 ibeacons post.

Visual Studio Partner of the Year Award




Visual Studio

At the annual Visual Studio Industry Partner Program Summit (VSIP) earlier this summer, Microsoft honored us with the prestigious VSIP Modern Application Partner of the Year award, recognizing Xamarin's increasingly important role in making Visual Studio the IDE of choice for multi-platform mobile development.

To learn more about mobile development with Visual Studio, join Xamarin's James Clancey and Microsoft's Jim Blizzard for a joint webinar on October 22, 2013.
