Starter / Trial / personal use

sketchausketchau USMember

I understand that the starter kit does not support VS, and apps developed with a "trial" license are only valid on a device for 24 hours. Is there a time limit for the trial? As a tinkerer and licensed Visual Studio user, I am wanting to play with Droid development with no intention of ever publishing an app. Is there a way to get ongoing Visual Studio support? Perhaps a way to lock down the application to a single device?

I don't have the money to spend $999/year for the Business licence, nor would I be profiting from or distributing anything I create. Are there any other avenues for VS support?

    A trial license is good for 30 days.

    When you begin a Xamarin Trial, you get access to the full Xamarin Business feature set, including the ability to run your app on actual device hardware, for 30 days.
