iOS perspective on mobile development with Xamarin

One of the fundamental mantras of software development is DRY – “Don’t repeat yourself”. It’s an important rule, because it allows us to save both space and time. Instead of rewriting a non-trivial algorithm, we use a method call, instead of correcting bugs in multiple places, we do it only in one. Would you ever not follow DRY? Well… yes, when you need to develop a mobile app. If your plan is to get as many customers as possible, releasing an iOS and Android version is a must. This means maintaining two very similar codebases. Can we do better? The answer is yes and it’s called Xamarin. It’s the platform we’re using for some of our newest projects here at Trifork, and we would like to share with you our experiences, likes and dislikes. Read on if you’re not afraid to abandon Xcode and Objective C.

When developing apps for mobile phones you want to offer your users the best user experience. Sometimes this includes showing information outside of your app, in another app. Up until recently, there was no real good way to do this. Luckily, now there is a new initiative App Links that provides an open source and cross-platform solution for app-to-app linking. The initiative is supported by many mobile app developers, like Dropbox, Facebook, Spotify and Pinterest. In this post I will show you an example how to link between two Android applications using the open source implementation for Android Bolts. However, the same principles apply when you want to link between two iOS applications.

The New Motion is enabling mobility based on renewable energy. Orange11 has developed an iPhone app for The New Motion that allows you to find load locations (list or map view), showing you the locations nearest to you and also showing realtime availability. And of course, it is possible to search for a specific load location.

We are happy to announce that the app has been accepted in the Apple App Store.
