I'm working using Xamarin iOS for a long time, and all that time Xamarin Studio was quite a buggy thing. Updating to new stable versions was always playing the lottery. But when I started to code for android that was a real butthurt. Android designer doesn't show resource strings/drawables, included layouts, autocomplete in xml is buggy and doesn't suggest my resource strings/drawables, it often freezes ui for quite a long time, and thats the most annoying thing about it. Sometimes it doesn't restore from these freezes. And the worst thing is that it becomes more and more buggy over time (one year ago there was not so many bugs). I want to ask Xamarin managers, with all your money, is it so hard to hire a couple of good programmers who know some good architecture patterns, who will fix bugs but not add new ones with each "stable" release? Who knows that hard calculations in ui thread is a pure evil, and who may be even write ui tests that cover problems that I've mentioned?
I can understand when i see crappy code in xamarin samples (almost everywhere), that's not so critical, but i can't understand when i "feel" it in your main and only IDE for mac.
If you can't find such people, pls tell me how to at least disable that designer so that i can write xml without lags.
Thank you, and sorry for my bad english.
