Port iOS to Windows 8

SuperProKyleSuperProKyle USMember

I was wondering if it is possible to port an existing iOS app to Windows 8 using Xamarin. I know it's possible to go from C# to an iOS app, so it seems logical that the reverse is true. Also, if there are any tutorials or documentation regarding this process, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    An iOS app written in Obj-C? If so, yes you can do it, but you would have to rewrite everything in C#. That's the old-school definition of port, and probably not what you had in mind.

    If it is a Xamarin.iOS app, you can potentially reuse the services/data/domain parts of the code, and just rewrite the UI and platform specific layers.

    Yeah it is an app written in Obj-C. I was hoping there would be an easier shortcut than converting it all to C# by hand. Oh well. If it was in fact a Xamarin.iOS app, are there any good tutorials on conversion to different platforms? Thanks for the quick reply!
