Xamarin.Forms Deployment and Testing

Publishing iOS apps

iOS apps can be distributed through Apple's App Store, in-house, and through ad-hoc channels.

Publishing Android apps

Android apps can be distributed through channels such as e-mail, a private web server, Google Play, or the Amazon App Store for Android.

Publishing Universal Windows Platform apps

UWP apps can be distributed through the Microsoft Store, side loading the app package directly to a device, or via Web Install.

Publishing Mac apps

Mac apps can be distributed via the Mac App Store, or directly.


There are many techniques for increasing the performance of Xamarin.Forms apps. Collectively these techniques can greatly reduce the amount of work being performed by a CPU, and the amount of memory consumed by an application.
