"Xamarin helps Rain deliver fantastic native experiences with maximum code re-use to improve deployment efficiency."
American Fork, UT (PRWEB) November 11, 2014
Rain, a creative technology agency with offices in Utah, New York and Nicaragua, has been invited to join the Xamarin Premier Partner program. The partner program includes only those companies and agencies that provide best in class mobile solutions to their clients. The Xamarin platform allows for efficient development of native applications through a single code base.
Xamarin’s development framework allows developers to build native iOS, Android and Windows applications, utilizing a shared C# codebase. Developers can then choose to build out the user experience natively or take advantage of Xamarin’s new UI code-sharing capability called Xamarin.Forms. The shared codebase can approach 100% in some cases. This can dramatically speed up development timelines and reduce ongoing application maintenance costs.
“Rain has always used the best solutions available to solve problems for our clients,” said Andrew Howlett, partner and Chief Digital Officer of Rain. “Partnering with Xamarin allows Rain to provide best-in-class mobile experiences from early concept phases to ongoing enhancement and maintenance. Consumers use their smart devices more and more, and the experience on these devices needs to be equal to or superior than the desktop versions. Mixed with great user experience planning and design, Xamarin helps Rain deliver fantastic native experiences with maximum code re-use to improve deployment efficiency, thereby achieving these results for our clients and their clientele."
“Companies need cross-platform mobile strategies moving forward,” said Erik Polzin, Director of Partners at Xamarin. “Rain brings their deep mobile design and development expertise together with Xamarin’s proven development platform to deliver fully native, high performance applications in an accelerated timeline to clients all over the world.”
