Pros: Easy to use and more help documentation.
Easy to start and develop the cross platform
Able to develop apps like the native app and able to use native OS capabilities

Cons: Some time feels like native app development is easy able to make changes with the very little effort unlike using cross platform IDE

Overall: This saves time and money and can work with single code base. This will help code maintainability

Xamarin is probably the best platform for cross platform development. I love it

Pros: Because of this software as a .Net developer i can create mobile apps that are cross platform and delpoy them on any app store, thanks Xamarin

Cons: Cant seem to find any cons to this, as Microsoft are constantly updating it, but overall this can be the go when it comes to mobile development

Overall: Really awesome product, great work Microsoft

Pros: We currently use Xamarin for both mobile application development, and we are looking at using it for development of OSX apps too.
Development is easy once you have a bit of knowledge, getting your head around the way to code in Xamarin is relatively easy, and after that you can develop in .NET (we use C#) without many issues. Adding features which require native code is easy enough too, and wrappers are easy to find to do this for you.

Cons: Xamarin forms are still not as good as we would like, so we tend to produce native user interfaces for each platform. We have hope that forms will reach a good enough standard to be used in most cases soon though.

Pros: Great dev platform for multi platform deployment. I chose it as it works with C#. Now that its free after Microsoft acquisition its a no brainer.

Overall: It has its occasional hiccups but nothing out of ordinary.

Pros: lots of features are included that are very useful during the development stage and is also make the production application easily configurable.

Cons: The development tool takes a lots of harddrive as well as memory for development, that is very tedious to manage for a less powerful system.

Overall: Cross platform application development

Pros: We can reuse source code to a great extent speeding up the engineering cycle. Its look and feel and behavior is very close to native app. Also due to its cross-platform application, Xamarin makes maintenance and updates easier.

Cons: With Xamarin, you have to use only the components provided by the platform and some .Net open source resources. Xamarin┬┐s main benefit is the ability to share your code across the platforms. Yet, you can only share the logic, UI code will be mostly platform-specific. This makes building games, rich custom UI, or complex animations in Xamarin pretty pointless.

Pros: Great platform to develop mobile applications, Xamarin compiles the C # code in binaries that run natively on each platform

Overall: Xamarin compiles the C # code in binaries that run natively on each platform, unlike doing them with PhoneGap for example

Adoption of the platform was seamless.

Pros: Xamerin primarily chosen because of our familiarity with C#. It is a lesser learning curve if you already have the c# resources. We have found it very easy from start to finish to deployment of mobile applications

Cons: One problem we keep running into is remote build server for iOS builds. The connection to the remote build server gets disconnect or can not connect we have to remove temp files to get the connection back

Overall: Easy to deploy cross platform mobile applications.

Pros: I don't have to learn java and switft wih c# I can develop multiplatform app for windows universal, android and ios reusing code. Includes a lot of packages for reuse code

Cons: The ide for visual studio in windows has a lot of bugs, I prefer the visual studio for mac, I would like a more stable version and a xamarin forms designer

Overall: I can develop app for ios, android with the same code base, and I can reuse a lot of code

Pros: It provides native support using language you already know (C#). If you know C# very deeply then maybe this would right choice for you.

Cons: Can't do high level UI stuff.
Not cross-platform as they advertise it is. you will end up doing same code for each platform. I'd do native rather than this.

Overall: Cross-platform development.

Pros: The learning curve is small.
Easy to use.
Easy to deploy.
Your core code is used with each platforms.
Can save a lot of time and one developer can build apps on all platforms

Cons: Costly because you have to pay for iOS and Android licence seperatly.

Overall: As a developper in .NET technologies, Xamarin is realy easy to user because you already know the language. You dont have to learn multiple language to develop on differents plateforms like iOS, Android or Windows mobile. You only have to learn whats the best practice in each platform concerning the design and navigation. The core is the same for each apps.

The deployment is fast and easy!

Pros: Easy to use, cross platform, includes prebuilt templates for different development projects

Cons: None really, other than it can take up quite a bit of space on your hard drive ~20gb

Overall: Xamarin is incredible, you can create IOS, Android, and windows mobile applications from one IDE. Easy to use and setup and you can't beat the price for Xamarin Studio (Free)!

Comments: If you want to take your .NET code to other platforms, Xamarin is the tool to do so. The only problem is that it involves a fairly steep learning curve, especially if you aren't familiar with the native development environments of iOS and Android. If this were easier to use, it would get a full five-star review.

Comments: In one of the project I needed that complex algorithms and business layer to be developed on independent of platform. I used Xamarin and this reduces significant time in maintaining the code for various mobile platforms significantly.
