F.A.Q.

Debugging

'soft debugger' gets embedded in your appCan be configured (IP address, port)

Binaries are much larger (of course)

Allows breakpoints, step-through, call stack

Works via TCP/IP, so you can debug the Simulator AND the device (untethered, so long as wifi is enabled).

Linking

Mono compiler strips out unused classes/librariesMobile devices size matters!

Trap for young players: it might strip out stuff you want to keep!Classes/methods/properties used via Reflection

Classes/methods/properties used in serialization operations

By default it's disabled in DEBUG, so stuff will work there and mysteriously break in RELEASE

[Preserve(AllMembers = true)]

Navigation

Getting from screen to screen

StartActivity()

IntentSetClass
typeof(AnActivity)

PutExtraCan also 'trigger' other applications

PushViewController()

UIViewControllerSubclass and pass instance

also UITabBar items

Databinding (lists)

More work that you are used to...
