Xamarin is furthering its mission to make C# the mobile-development language of choice by allowing iOS coders to use Microsoft's Visual Studio.

Xamarin is making C# development one step easier for iOS developers, enabling them to build applications in C# using Visual Studio.


On February 20, Xamarin announced immediate availability of Xamarin 2.0, which includes Xamarin Studio, a new integrated development environment (IDE) and the Xamarin Component Store. The 2.0 release also includes Xamarin.iOS for Visual Studio -- a plug-in that allows iOS developers to write native C# apps using Microsoft's Visual Studio suite.

Xamarin has been beta testing the new IDE for about nine months, said Nat Friedman, CEO and cofounder of Xamarin. A key priority during that time was to build parity between Xamarin Studio and Visual Studio.
