Article - Getting Started with Xamarin Forms

With the Xamarin.Forms API, a single user interface can work on three different platforms: iOS, Android, and Windows Phone - a huge savings in code writing! Wei-Meng Lee provides examples for working with Xamarin.Forms, showing the kinds of navigation your interfaces can use on the individual platforms.
While Xamarin is a dream come true for developers planning to build cross-platform apps for the iOS, Android, and Windows Phone platforms, maintaining different user interface code is still a pain for most developers. Although a significant part of the app logic can be written once and reused for multiple platforms, developers still have had to code separately for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.
Not anymore. In May 2014 Xamarin introduced the Xamarin.Forms API, which allows developers to build shared screens for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. Using the Xamarin.Forms API, you can create a single code base for your user interface, and Xamarin will automatically translate it into the native UI elements for each platform that you're targeting.
In this article, I'll help you get started with Xamarin.Forms by creating different pages using the various classes available in the API.
