Forum Cross Platform with Xamarin

Unable to find the build host app on Mac

I have a trial version of Xamarin and I am trying to connect my Visual Studio to the Mac build host.
But even after installing 'Xamarin for iOS', I can't find the build host app on the Mac.
I tried deleting, restarting and reinstalling, but I am still unable to get the build host app installed on the Mac.
I tried to individually install the app, but when I go to the downloads page and click on 'Show all versions', I only see Xamarin Studio. I don't see Xamarin.iOS, which I am guessing is what has the build host app.

Please let me know what else I can try.

    You have to install Xamarin Studio on the Mac.

    On top of the Xamarin Studio installation will come the Xamarin bonjour service that you will use for your Visual Studio -> Mac pairing.
