Building publish packages from the command line - Build Server

I'm looking to fully automate our builds for iOS and Android. I have a Mac Mini with a Windows Server VM running with a TFS Build Agent. I've setup the Xamarin Build Host on the Mac and in the Build Agent account, paired it with the mac.

I'm able to successfully build iOS and Android projects using TFS Build (basically the MS Build command line).

However, I want to now get the Android APK's and iOS IPA's output.

How can I do this on the command line with out the publish wizard in VS? For the IPA, it currently pops open the folder on the Mac, but I'd rather have it copied back to the PC and put in the output directory for manual deployment.

I don't currently see any way to do this, but it's critical for repeatable builds and for builds where we can keep symbols, track exact build binaries, etc.

Thanks
