GoodTimes IOS app built with Xamarin

Last month i have team up with GoodTimes Guides to bring the Lagos and Sagres city guides to the App Store.

The design was clean and modern and provided by the GoodTimes team, i did the implementation of the app for the iPhone.

Built with Xamarin tools, the solution is simple and consists in one shared pcl library and one iOS project. The pcl also contains some embedded json files with offline data that it’s used to share the data access between the IOS and a future android project easier.
With IOS 7 there where some tricks i had to pull off to mirror the photoshop design. The app also uses native apple maps api to get directions to a gps location and draws the route on the map. In the location service i also had some fun using the new async/await patterns provided by C#.

Try out the free app from the AppStore.
