If you’re following the Azure Notifications Hub documentation you’ve probably used this for your iOS notification message:
I have a client with a Xamarin Forms app that streams live video for sporting events that they host throughout the year. Recently they sent me an email apologizing but saying they forgot to update a sponsor’s logo for an upcoming event. The event was 2 days away, could we get the app updated and in the stores?
I told them the truth. Most likely, no, but we can try. Here is the timeline of how we made it happen.
When you’re using AVPlayer with Xamarin one of the difficulties can be troubleshooting. There’s an easy way to get error notification from AVPlayer that isn’t mentioned in the Xamarin documentation.
You probably already have something similiar to this line:
Kevin Ford, Ken Ross, and I built an application twice (source code available at GitHub.com/Magenic/WhitepaperPerformance) once in Xamarin and once in PhoneGap. The white paper discusses the pros and cons of each platform as well as the performance metrics we saw from each when hitting the same Azure back end.
