Can anyone recommend the best way to use TFS from Xamarin on my Mac for iOS?

    If you're talking about using TFS as your source control system, and that being integrated in Xamarin Studio, then yes it is possible. I think you'll need TFS 2013 implemented, but when you create a Team Project, select "Git" as the source control system. Once the Team Project is setup, you can connect to it via Xamarin Studio, or through the git command line. As far as Xamarin Studio is concerned, it's just a remote Git repository. We currently have this setup as my current engagement and it seems to be working well.

    However, if you're unfamiliar with distributed source control systems, such as Git, I'd recommend brushing up on that because you'll have to think a little differently if you're used to TFS or other centralized source control systems.

    For anyone else searching that is using TFS 2010 that aren't allowed run a SVN bridge.

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30661 and eclipse actually runs pretty well. Since I still use eclipse for native dev/android xmls I don't mind having the tool opened to do my TFS work.

    If you're not command line adverse, you can use Team Explorer Everywhere from Microsoft. This is a set of cross-platform command line utilities for TFS.
