    no there is no mediator who can covert the android to ios in xamarin.forms if you need to do check Microsoft was not allowed to create simulator for IOS without Mac permission . You have to create you project inside the PCL folder(shared).

    Hello, am also a free-lance dev, wrote an app for Android using Xamarin.Android so am wondering if there's a way which I can have my app for IOS too?

    NO, just simply NO. You have to implement your app via Xamarin.iOS, or switch directly to Xamarin.Forms, and rewrite all.

    @iamaurous I wouldn't say you need to rewrite it all, if you (or have already) split out your code properly then your business logic could be shared between both your Droid and iOS app. The front end however will either need to be (re)written in Xamarin.Forms and used by both apps, or duplicated in native Xamarin.iOS. The front end should really be the simplest part of your app with no business logic at all.

    Ah that's what I thought too, that will still be easier than to re-write my code all over again. Thank you mate
