Movies is a Xamarin.Forms GTK backend application that makes use of The Movie Database (TMDb) API, a popular, user editable database for movies and TV shows, to demonstrate the possibilities of the new backend making use of a great variety of functionality.
Xamarin.Forms allows you to build native UIs for iOS, Android, Windows, macOS and Linux from a single, shared codebase. You can dive into mobile development with Xamarin.Forms by following our free self-guided learning from Xamarin University. This project exercises the following patterns and features:
