Can Xamarin access native API (in Android, iOS or WP)

MahbubMahbub FIMember

Hi,
I am studying the possibility and power of Xamarin platform. Does it support the native API, for example if I write an app in Android Java, I can easily access Bluetooth related functionalities but if I create an app/game with this Xamarin platform, can I access those (Bluetooth, NFC, WiFi, GPS etc).
Any documents or URL?

    You can do with Xamarin whatever you can do on the original platform

    yes - that's kinda the whole point of Xamarin - it exposes the native APIs in C# so you call them as if you were in the normal platform language.

    Thanks for the information. Since I am starting the comparison, is there any well known app/game in Google play or Apple app store?
