Mobile Essentials Gallery Beta
The Mobile Essentials Gallery provides a custom Visual Studio Gallery (also called Private Galleries, but ours is pretty public ;)) with experimental and early prototypes and tools for mobile development on the Xamarin platform.
All extensions are provided free to use and experiment. We welcome your feedback on the tools at our UserVoice forum!
In order to get the new gallery in your Visual Studio 2012 (or later), open
Tools | Options and configure the page
Environment > Extension Manager as follows, using the gallery url
Once the gallery is set up, you can go to Visual Studio's
Tools | Extensions and Updates... menu and a new Mobile Essentials node will appear under the Online category, where you can explore and install the tools:
Updates also show in this same window, under the respective category
