Anyone knows if VS2013 Community can be used to develop Xamarin Android project?
When I open X.A project via VS 2013 Community, I got project type unsupported / can't be opened by this VS version.
Thank you

    Thanks @Mike_James‌, I installed Xamarin tools.
    This is what I did. I created a Xamarin Android new project in Xamarin Studio and then opened that newly created Xamarin Android project in VS 2013 Community, but project type unsupported by VS 2013 Community...

    Do you have any project templates in Visual Studio 2013 for Xamarin.Android?

    No, there is no X.Android project template. There is not even a Xamarin type project template available in vs 2013 C.
    Is that VS 2013 Community not supporting xamarin project yet? I guess I have to uninstall vs 2010 then install xamarin studio again. Cause I installed vs 2010 before installing 2013 Community.

    I just deleted vs 2010 and double clicked xamarininstallation.exe. Now I'm able to run android project in vs 2013 Community. :D Thanks @Mike_James‌
