Xamarin Studio issues

All of a sudden Xamarin Studio freezes up a lot, takes an exceedingly long time to build, rarely allows me to debug on the device and all sorts of issues.

It used to feel quite snappy - has anyone else had any problems like this recently? It's pretty much unusable for me atm - I constantly have to force it to restart :/

    I'm having the same issue with Visual Studio/Xamarin. Especially when I switch from the emulator back to Visual Studio. Can't say for sure if Xamarin is causing it though. I can only run the emulator once, if I need to run it a second time either VS freezes, or, when I try run the emulator it freezes. Has been happening for a few days now.

    :/ it's really frustrating.

    Even things like debugging on deveice: one minute it launches and debugs - the next nothing works and I have to go through the settings jig, unconfigure and reconfigure everything until it magically starts working again.

    Just about had it.

    Same for me. Im restarting the thing like 10 times each day, specially if I work on Android projects. It was working perfectly before. It freezes when I run the app in the debugger or the device, and the Intellisense some times take a long time, or doesnt work at all.

    I'm also a bit frustrated with the Xamarin studio. Lots of issues which pushes me to Visuals Studio or something else.

    Ideally I need designers which works cross platform a la Forms. Something like in this video (german) while the whole video is interesting the designer presentation starts at: 28m. These guys really nailed it. I want this for .Net

    I know millions are invested in Xamarin so hence this bold question: Is this something that we can expect from Xamarin and in which time frame?
