    I have a few apps in the store done with Xamarin.

    Nearest Bus is a quick bus locator for London, which won an award from Transport for London recently. It finds where you are, and queries the TfL "countdown" service to work out where your nearest stops are, and when the bus is going to arive.

    mobileAgent is a client for FreeAgent, which is a SaaS accounting package mostly focused on the UK. I wrote mobileAgent as I needed what it does - scratching my own itch. It allows offline entry of expenses, bills, receipts and mileage, as well as invoice creation and bank account viewing.

    Trip Wallet is another "scratch my own itch" app, which lets you record your spending when you are on holiday (or any time). You can enter multiple currencies, and it always resolves it back to your home currency, so you can see how much you have spent, and if you are on target or over budget.

    I've done a couple for other people, too:

    Earnest is an app for tracking income and expendature for very small businesses. It is based around the UK HMRC (IRS) requirement of only Income - Expenses = Tax to pay. This was done on contract for FreeAgent, and won an award from The Scottish Herald.

    Educa is an early childhood education startup, and I did their Android and iPad apps. It centers around a ECE center entering in the childs "learning stories", what they did that day, what they learned, how they are doing. It's mostly New Zealand, Australia and Asia-focused. This uses the same core libraries for service and database access across the two platforms.

    Could I have done this without Xamarin? yes, of course. But it wouldn't be nearly as much fun, nor would it have been as easy.

    Piano Companion is a flexible chord and scale dictionary with user libraries and a reverse mode. Piano Companion allows you to find a chord or scale by its name. If you don't remember the name of the chord or scale, it helps you to find it by keys. Piano Companion shows chord and scale notes, degrees, fingering for both hands in major and minor scales. You can also listen to the scale or chord, to find out how it sounds.

    Songtive is a songwriting tool, band and social network. Songtive allows you to experiment with arrangements and chord progressions. It helps you to organize your favourite songs and chord charts, and to share them with your friends. It's still in progress but we are going to publish it in next couple weeks.

  • I've been a .NET web and Windows developer for over 15 years and if I hadn't had Xamarin, the learning curve would have been too great for me to build an iOS app in a reasonable time.
    Fortunately, with Xamarin, I was able to use my knowledge of C#, the .NET Framework libraries, and the power of the full Visual Studio environment (including Resharper), which I'm familiar with, to build Shopping UK in just a couple of months. Shopping UK is an elegantly simple shopping list app that automatically categorises your items by supermarket aisle.

    I'm currently working on a new version of the app that takes advantage of .NET's powerful support for asynchronous programming mode, which I'm delighted to say, is fully supported by Xamarin.

  • I've built an app for one of our clients that helps them process new cars coming in from the port. It scans the Vehicle Identification Number and calls a WebAPI that then calls an AS400 to interact with system data. Using Xamarin has made my life easier as I have been able to use portable class libraries on the WebAPI and also use them on the Android project. It makes transferring data across the wire as easy as using the WebAPI client libraries from NuGet. Asynchronous programming has been a breeze with Xamarin.

    I see that most of the applications are iOS applications. Do you also offer Android versions?

  • SebastianSeidel.9226SebastianSeidel.9226 DEInsider, University ✭✭✭✭

    Most of my apps are done as contract work and I am not allowed to speak about all. Some of them are not public available. But I am proud of them as if they are my very own. ;-)

    Just to list a view I am allowed to speak about:

    QR Code Scanner is an app that helps to authenticate against the customers product website. It supports iOS and Android.

    Telematics is an app that helps farmers keeping track of there machines. This is also available for both Android and iOS. I was also involved in the other apps offered by my client.

    TimePunch is a time tracking app. It was my very first app that got to the stores. I am currently working on a total make over of its UI. It is available for Android, iOS and Windows Phone. The WP version was done by the client himself.

    All apps using extensively C# and I could not have done this without Xamarin.

    Great to see so many people active on this post and to see all the great apps created!

    I've recently published an app into Apple's App Store created using Xamarin.

    Mobile Midwest

    It's a conference application that shows all information relating to the Mobile Midwest conference being held in Kansas City, MO on April 23, 2014.

    From the app description, here are the features:

    • Complete schedule for the entire conference, with up to the minute detail and locations
    • Have access to bio's for all the speakers at the tip of your finger
    • Social stream allows you to see all tweets with the official hashtag, send your own tweets
    • Get to know our incredible sponsors with links to their sites
    • Learn more about the organizations that built the app

    I'm currently working on the Android version and hoping to have it ready for release shortly.

    Google Glass PGA Tour Leaderboard

    I'm also working on a Google Glass app created with Xamarin. It's a simple card based app that displays the current scores on the PGA Tour. I'm hoping to get back to it and make it look better and work better (better UX for web service loading, etc) after I'm done with the Mobile Midwest Android port.

  • JamesMontemagnoJamesMontemagno USForum Administrator, Xamarin Team, Developer Group Leader Xamurai

    Wow!! So many apps that I can't wait to try! I love it! Keep them coming!

  • RazorAntRazorAnt USInsider, University ✭✭

    I have a bunch of apps done with Xamarin. The most popular ones currently are:

    Trading Post for GW2 is a app that basically lets you see all the stuff you can buy and sell in the game Guild Wars 2 and the current prices.

    SudokuKids for iPad is sudoku puzzles for kids. Fun pictures simple 4x4 and 6x6 puzzles.

    I have bunch more, most of which are listed on my site. All except ProfitTrain are Xamarin apps and hopefully I'll be fixing that in a future release.

  • My first Xamarin app, AvaTourGuide, a virtual guide that verbally announces what's around you using your device's TTS capabilities. Perfect for breaking the boredom of long drives or learning about your own neighbourhood.

    A companion website at enables crowdsourcing of new points of interest.

    Version 1.1 refactored with MVVMCross with an iOS version in the works.

    I too have created a number of apps for clients which I don't have permission to post publicly, however I can say I've rescued at least a couple of projects that started out as hybrid apps and the companies abandoned ship to rebuild them natively. They were in each case more than happy with the results, especially considering the time and cost savings with me using Xamarin tools to get the job done!

    I do have a couple of apps I can share.

    gTunes - Google Music for Mac -
    This app is actually a Xamarin.Mac app which adds a bunch of additional functionality to Google Music's already awesome web app. It adds things such as keyboard play/pause/next/prev media key support, now playing notifications, Last.FM scrobbling, and a much needed 'mini player' mode.

    Squash - Mac App Store
    Squash is a beautifully simple yet powerful tool designed to help print shops and designers layout their desired image onto whatever size page they need. It also allows them to add dynamic fields such as numbering or sets of custom codes onto their design. It's a tool to help you skip the boring stuff, save time, and leave the office a little early.

    Aegis Shield Mobile iOS App Store Android Play Store
    This app is the interface into a very rich database of nutrients, supplements, and health products. The Aegis Shield program is partnered with several major pro athlete organizations to provide them with information on the products they are looking to use, to ensure they adhere to their respective program's strict policies on performance enhancements.

    The Coming Soon
    This app provides individuals in their communities find available health services for a variety of needs. The app is going live soon on Android, iOS, and Blackberry (which is still fairly popular in this area - the blackberry version is the same Xamarin built app for Android!)

    I've also made a number of Xamarin components, that frankly, without the platform existing I would never have had any interest in creating or using. Xamarin has made this all possible:

    • ZXing.Net.Mobile
    • AndHUD
    • EggsToGo
    • FlatUI

    NMT Setup Windows Phone store Play store iTunes An app I have done at work. It needs a log in to work. It is an app for our recently launched product called Noise Sentinel On Demand, which is a subscription service, where you "rent" some Noise Monitoring Terminals (NMTs). Then you have the possibility to download the NMT Setup app which helps you setting up the Terminal. It validates the setup, you can geographically position the NMT, take a picture of it and write a small description of its surroundings.
    Then there is a web app where you can monitor the terminals, get alerts if the environment is too noisy, generate reports for the authority etc. We are working on expanding the apps with more features to help the customers.
    I've also been doing a proof of concept of that web app on the phone, to monitor the NMTs.

    BatteryDrainer Play store an app I made because I had some issues with a Moto G's battery. So it had to be drained for power. Hence, I made my own app for that.

    I am also the author of LegacyBar with lots of help from @JamesMontemagno‌ (pretty cool guy) and loads of other libraries which I have ported over, such as SlidingMenuSharp, ViewPagerIndicator, SmoothProgressBar, SlidingUpPanel and more which can be found on GitHub.

    Currently, I am in the process of porting our iOS app over to Xamarin Android and MvvmCross. I am a good portion of the way done with it. It's connecting to a custom Bluetooth LE device that we built and transmitting data across BLE using an MvvmCross plugin that I built. I don't have anything that is publicly available for showing yet, but should have something in the next month or so.

    I have now been developing with Xamarin for nearly 3 years now. My first project was an app called My Media Center for my previous employer. It is an app that allows you to control & manage your Windows Media Center DVR at home or while away. It launched for Android, iOS, and Windows Phone all on the same day with 70% code shared between them. It was then launched on Windows Store a few months after Windows 8 was released.

    Since then I have worked on a few more personal projects:

    Meetup Manager

    This is a tool for organizers that allows them to sign in via oAuth get a list of their groups and meetings and then check in their members. I basically created it for myself to manage my group, but since then it has had a lot of success. It is now available on Android, iOS, and Windows Phone. Additionally, it is completely open source on GitHub. This is also a great project because I got help from the community on bugs and with the WP version from @EdSnider‌

    My StepCounter

    I worked on brining over Mike James' iOS version of My StepCounter to Android. It is also completely open source on GitHub and is Starter Compatible as well. You can check both versions out on our site: I did an in depth breakdown on my blog:

    We had contracted out the development of a native iOS application for our client, Bridgestone Golf.

    Being a .Net shop we wanted to be able to enhance this application in house. We rewrote the application for version 2.0 using Xamarin. It took us about 3 weeks.

    We definitely couldn't have done it without Xamarin. Now starting to dive into the Android version.

  • Soccer Scores - FotMob (iOS version) is made with Xamarin! Started the implementation in November 2010 so we're loyal :-) We're ranked in top 10 in a lot of countries and our Android version (sadly not Xamarin) is #1 in "Germany/Sports/Paid". Have over 5 million downloads in total.

    At Modern Medical, Inc, we just released our latest version of TruMobile in the Google Play store using Xamarin Studio as a follow-on to our native iOS version. We chose Xamarin to leverage our .Net experience and knowledge to bring the Android version of TruMobile to market faster. This allowed us to mimic what was already developed on the iOS version of TruMobile in 2 man-months.

    Modern Medical is a worker's compensation cost-containment company that provides Pharmacy and Ancillary services for the injured worker to insurance companies, self-insured employers, third party administrator (TPAs), and case management companies. TruMobile allows the injured worker receiving benefits from Modern Medical to find in-network pharmacies, view/email/fax their pharmacy retail card, view list of mediations, view/contact their adjuster(s), search for medication-related information, order supplies, receive notifications for refills on medication and supplies, and many other features to help in managing their work-related injury. TruMobile also offers options for the Adjuster to search and view claims, view/email/fax the pharmacy retail card on a claim, update adjusters on the claim, update the formulary on a claim, and respond to real-time medication rejections at the pharmacy.
