Cross-platform development made even easier.
Plugins for Xamarin are libraries that expose a single set of APIs for accessing common mobile device functionality across iOS, Android, and Windows. This increases the amount of code developers can share across mobile platforms, making mobile app development easier and faster.
Plugins for Xamarin abstract several APIs across iOS, Android, and Windows platforms including camera, geo-location, settings, permissions, connectivity, file system, notifications, and a lot more.
Developers often find that because mobile feature sets have evolved so quickly, services that are common across mobile platforms are not exposed by the .NET BCL. This limits the amount of code that could be shared across mobile platforms. Developers often resort to creating their own platform abstractions, or designing pluggable architectures, just to get access to the system address book, the devices’s GPS, the compass, the accelerometer, the notification service or the system calendar.
Plugins for Xamarin solves this problem, helping you maximize code sharing while still delivering high-performance, beautiful, native user experiences.
Plugins for Xamarin are created and developed in the open by Xamarin developers and are distributed through NuGet packages.Browse Plugins for Xamarin
