We are looking at building tools and libraries for iOS and I am wondering how deeply Xamarin tools would let us get. For example, could a tool like Reveal (http://revealapp.com/) be built with Xamarin?
Consuming obj-c libraries from a Xamarin/Mono/iOS app is well supported and is used by a lot of people (e.g. TestFlight).
I know people have linked Reveal with Xamarin apps, and I was able to do so successfully as well.
Is that what you mean?
Xamarin tools is for compiling c# code, and though I've seen some chatter about using c#/mono libraries from obj-c I don't think it's very well supported.
Unfortunately Reveal does not seem to work in a VM (due to lack of OpenGL?) and as such it did not actually render the GUI, which in turn rendered it useless for us;P
