I want to create a Xamarin.Forms application. Xamarin.Forms project consists of 3 sub-projects Xamarin.Android, Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.UWP. I want to know if I deploy these three projects respectively on an Android, iOS or Windows device will the apps installed on those devices be bigger than the project sizes in the IDE(Visual Studio) and if yes, how many times bigger(2, 3, 4.... in the three scenarios)? I am asking because I may be given a Xamarin.Forms app to do and I want to know how much GB of SSD will I need(guessing that I will be given a big Xamarin.Forms application to do) so I buy the proper Mac.
