In this paper we are focusing on native application development approach and cross platform application development approach. Developing mobile applications inside Visual Studio provides a number of benefits such as Creating cross platform projects for Android, Windows and iOS applications, Working with a familiar IDE, while taking many advantages of Xamarin. iOS bindings of all Apple’s API Although developing applications using Xamarin saves time and resources, there are some inherent disadvantages.
