Hi,

I dabble a bit with mobile programming. Made this one a while back with Xamarin Studio. While the business logic for such B2B apps is straightforward, the UI is often a cumbersome process.

So I was wondering. Will Xojo for iOS (and later android) possibly support linking to code made with Xamarin or Xcode for that matter?

It will probably be faster to use Xojo for the UI when it comes to simple B2B form-based apps.

Linking - probably not directly unless you write a plugin.
The reason is that would require a static library & static library formats vary widely - we'd have to tell you the specific compilers & versions you COULD generate a static library we could link.
A plugin is more like a DLL but wrapped in a specific API that Real Studio uses

OR you CAN write a DYLIB / DLL & call into that as DLL's do have very well defined API's
Check out "declares"

I don't know if you've heard, but Xamarin is getting an integrated iOS designer. You can try it by switching to the Alpha channel in the "Check for Updates" screen. (App Menu > Check for Updates).
