Microsoft Buys Xamarin to Boost Cross-Platform Development

Microsoft on Wednesday announced that it has reached an agreement to acquire Xamarin, a platform provider for mobile app development. Xamarin’s platform will be used in conjunction with Microsoft’s Visual Studio, enabling developers to build apps using C# to deliver fully native mobile app experiences across platforms, including Android and iOS, said Microsoft’s Scott Guthrie. Its technology could further allow developers to take advantage of the productivity of .NET in building apps that utilize C# to write a full set of native APIs, he added.
