We stumbled upon the news recently that Xamarin.Forms 3.0 has preview support for WPF!
This is really interesting for us at SciChart, as we make iOS Charts, Android Charts with Xamarin Support, as well as WPF charts, but we do not yet have a UWP chart solution. We feel that the API for UWP is incomplete and too immature to make good charting components or applications, so have avoided too much investment into this platform until it showed more promise.
Well maybe we won’t have to? If WPF becomes a first class citizen of the Xamarin ecosystem, then this should really be the first choice for cross-platform development of Xamarin applications which require a Windows app footprint.
Find out more about Xamarin’s plans here.
We will be prototyping to see what we can do with these frameworks soon.
