We are excited to announce the Quartz Tech Preview of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Xamarin! This SDK enables .NET developers to build immersive, native mapping applications for Android and iOS devices using C#. It includes three APIs: Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS for apps that need access to native functionality, and Xamarin.Forms to create shared UI layouts across Android and iOS. All are built on the same ArcGIS Runtime .NET API so they share a common design which encourages sharing code across application platforms.
Here is what you can expect to do in the Quartz Tech Preview of ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Xamarin:
- Open, edit, and author web maps from ArcGIS Online and Portal for ArcGIS
- Open ArcGIS mobile map packages containing maps, layers, locators, and networks
- Display layers that use ArcGIS services (tiled and dynamic map image layers, vector tiled layers, feature layers)
- Edit feature layers online and offline using geodatabase feature tables and the geodatabase sync task
- Work with anonymous and secured portals
The Tech Preview is open to the public. To learn how to get started, go to the ArcGIS for Developers web site and join the Tech Preview.

We are pleased to announce the 10.2 beta release of the ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Store apps. The ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Windows Store apps provides a high performance mapping experience for modern apps on Windows 8 and Windows RT. The SDK is founded on an ArcGIS core runtime, built for the Windows Runtime, and provided for use by .NET developers. The beta release of the SDK includes support for building XAML/.NET Windows Store apps. Use the SDK to:
- Mash-up map, feature, and image services from ArcGIS Online and your own on-premise ArcGIS Server to create unique maps
- Search for features in a map using spatial or SQL criteria
- Sketch points, lines and polygons on the map
- Match addresses to locations (geocode) and locations to addresses (reverse-geocode)
- Generate routes and driving directions
- Use the geometry engine to perform geometric operations and compute spatial relationships between features
- Search and use items in ArcGIS Online or Portal for ArcGIS
Download the SDK from the Esri Beta Community. To start, you’ll need an Esri Global account, registered with the Beta Community. Once registered, fill out a brief survey to be accepted into the beta program. Once in the program, click on the Software Downloads link under the Project Resources section (bottom of the table of contents), download the VSIX file and install. Visual Studio 2012 on Windows 8 is required.
