Shipping with a "FAT" library

Hi Folks,

I'm concerned about the bound FAT libraries in my project. Once I want to ship my app to the app store I obviously don't need the simulator related code in my app. Does Xamarin strip any of these symbols automatically? Should I create a "slim" library when shipping? Is there any experience here in automating this process? Any best practices?

    You do not have to worry about this. Your final application will only have code for the architecture(s) you selected.

    IOW you can ship a FAT application, ARMv6 and/or ARMv7 and/or ARMv7s, if this is what you configured (Build Options) but there won't be x86 (simulator) code.
