Community or One-Off Fee License ?

SteveK9SteveK9 USMember


I'm trying to develop a simple app for our family use, using Xamarin Forms (No plans to release it to any app stores but you never know...)

I can't justify the monthly cost of a license, is there a free option at all for this kind of use ? Or a one-off license fee I could pay ?

I guess I could use the free months trial ... this would get most of the dev work done, but what about bug fixes / tweaks etc

Any suggestions ?

    Thanks - yeah I can wait :smile: Suspect it will get bundled in with Visual studio somehow

    Buy a monthly license for as long as you need to get the app built, then drop it. If you ever need to do updates, get another month.
