Xamarin.MvvmCross vs Xamarin.Forms

VijuViju INMember

Hello All,

We are planning to go with Xamarin for our next big project.
Seems like Xamarin.Forms mature enough to go with production projects.
But still I want to take inputs from you experts, should we go with Xamarin.Forms or Xamarin with MvvmCross architecture.

Project is big and critical for our customer.

    https://www.xamarin.com/forms#choose-an-approach gives a nice simple overview.

    Forms if you want a simpler UI. Xamarin with MVVMCross if you want lots of cool platform specific stuff.

    If you have a team of WPF developers then Forms is easy, if you have iOS/Android developers then Xamarin/MVVMCross might be better

    Certainly there are enough apps using forms in the real world that it's mature enough to go with, although @FredyWenger might disagree.
