The Xamarin development environment includes Xamarin Studio, which is a fully-developed IDE (Interactive Development Environment). It increases productivity of developer with features such as code completion, a powerful debugger that works with either an emulator or hardwire devices, support for easy app publishing and an interactive UI builder.

For developers who prefer the Visual Studio IDE, Xamarin provides a VS plugin that adds many of these capabilities while allowing developers to leverage existing VS development skills.

  1. With Xamarin you can easily avoid bugs; therefore, increase software quality

Probably the greatest benefit for users of apps developed with Xamarin is an increase in software quality due to code reuse. It stands to reason that the chances of introducing platform-specific errors can be dramatically decreased when app code is written once and shared on different mobile platforms.

The chances of introducing bugs are also reduced because developers work with one programming language and one API. When developers spend less time fixing bugs, they have more time for adding functionality and polishing the user experience.
