Xamarin iOS development

I’m creating an app for personal use. Here’s what I’ve learned so far.

  • Installation of the SDK and Xamarin is easy. Just download and install. I’ve chosen the starter (free) plan.
  • To run the app without an Apple iOS Developer license you must change the target to emulator. (step 25 in the Quickstart) Else you’ll get the following build error

    No valid iPhone code signing keys found in keychain.

  • Use the storyboard feature for adding views since the xib synchronization with xcode seems broken
  • If your app is showing an expiry time, … do a clean rebuild

This post will update when my project progresses.

My work as a recruited developer changes almost every month. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
