Featues Supported By Xamarin

rrbrrb INMember

We are going to create a cross platform(iOS, android, windows) application using Xamarin Forms.This is going to be a long-term project.
Are the following features fully supported by Xamarin ?

  1.  Camera access
  2.  Barcode scanner
  3.  Geolocation / geo-fence access
  4.  Background Push notifications
  5.  Document viewer (all common formats)
  6.  Image viewer(all common formats)
  7.  Multi-linguistic support  
  8.  File browser
  9.  Local Database support like SQL Lite

Can we integrate 3rd party dot-net dll’s (ODA library) into Xamarin ?
Is there any other development supports (email support) ?

    Xamarin supports all of these if they are supported by OS. Xamarin Forms usually does not support these directly... you have to use DependencyServices or plugins.

    Email support I think it's only for Enterprise licenses

    If not supported directly there are a lot of free and open source nuget packages to use like
    Z.Xing Mobile for Barcode Scanning
    or https://github.com/jamesmontemagno/MediaPlugin for camera and picture access

    You should probably take a few minutes to google stuff like "Xamarin.Forms Bar code Scanning" and you will get some infos and probably a guide to follow

    Xamarin(Forms) itself has a lot of guides for like background push notifications

    PS: here you can find much of informations https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/getting_started/
