Developing iOS applications with Xamarin Studio for Windows

agrarianagrarian USMember

Is one able to use the Xamarin Studio for Windows to develop an iOS app? I've been tasked to evaluate Xamarin for a potential cross-platform project at our company. After installing Xamarin Studio for Windows, I tried to load the sample Tasky app according to the tutorial. I received the message "Xamarin.iOS projects are not supported in Xamarin Studio on Windows. You need to use Visual Studio, or Xamarin Studio on Mac."

    No. The idea is that if a user is developing on Windows, it is because they prefer Visual Studio.

    OK. Thanks for getting back to me. I don't want to go ahead and set up a 30 day trial yet, so I'll just evaluate the Starter Edition on the Mac.
