I'm looking for a comprehensive list of arguments for Xamarin.
I find it incredibly hard to sell a Xamarin solution over a cheaper Web App.
The price is higher, the initial work is more - That's what the customers see.
I am looking for reasons that go beyond
- "the performance is better" (-> Customer: "But web app performance is good enough!")
- "the UI is native" (-> C: "but we want a branded look anyway across all platforms and we can just make it look like a specific platform by using CSS")
- "code can be shared with the server" (-> C: "we use PHP on the server")
- "Xamarin cooperates with Microsoft, it's a save bet" (-> C: "American companies aren't always silver bullets"). And so on. I hear similar arguments when dealing with Phonegap, Appcelarator and those.
