Forum Xamarin Cross Platform with Xamarin

Threadpool or Threads

Other than the normal .Net reasons for using the Threadpool versus Threads, are there any other reasons for using one or the other with regards to Xamarin and Cross-Platform development?

    I can't imagine there is a reason to prefer threads or a thread pool regarding to Xamarin or cross-platform development. Starting and stopping threads always takes time. If you got a lot of tasks, you should always prefer a thread pool. This behavior should be the same in most operating system.

    Usually Threadpool because it reuses threads (there are exceptions) or, even better, Task(s).
