This library brings the latest platform-specific networking libraries to Xamarin applications via a custom HttpClient handler. Write your app using System.Net.Http, but drop this library in and it will go drastically faster. This is made possible by two native libraries:
The good news is, you don't have to know either of these two libraries above, using ModernHttpClient is the most boring thing in the world. Here's how it works:
var httpClient = new HttpClient(new NativeMessageHandler());
How can I use this in a PCL?
Just reference the Portable version of ModernHttpClient in your Portable Library, and it will use the correct version on all platforms.
Why doesn't this build in Xamarin Studio? What gives?
