MvvmCross v3

This project provides a cross-platform mvvm mobile development framework built on top of:

  • Silverlight for WP7, WP8
  • Mono for Android (or Xamarin.Android)
  • MonoTouch for iOS (or Xamarin.iOS)
  • the WinRT XAML framework for Windows 8 Store apps.
  • WPF
  • Mono for Mac (or Xamarin.Mac)

This project makes extensive use of Portable Class Libraries to provide maintainable cross platform C# native applications.
