xUnit already supports Xamarin for all of its test execution and runner libraries. There's an xUnit for Devices project that enables unit tests to run on iOS/Android devices. The missing piece is Test Cloud support.84 votes
I think it would be great upsell to add Visual Studio Support for an additional $5.00 - $10.00 per month rather than forcing indie developers who want to use Visual Studio to have to purchase a business license...29 votes
Windows 10 already has over 110 million users. Microsoft introduced the UWP project to enable developers to make apps for all sort of devices: desktop, mobile etc. With integration in Xamarin Studio we could reach those potential users even better!24 votes
Since a long time, we have dedicated iOS- and Android-forums.
Although the Windows platform is official part of .forms, we don't have a WP / UWP / Windows Forum.
Especially since there is also an UWP implementation on the way, a forum for the Windows platform is strongly missing.
So please add Windows forum with sub-forums for at least:
- WP 8.1
- (maybe also WP 8.0)
- (maybe also WinRt)
- Links to the official MS pages9 votes

unseal ResourceDictionary so we can create our own ResourceDictionaries in Xaml

I'd like to see two Search results pads like in Visual Studio and also when performing a Find References the results are in its own pane such as a Find Symbols or whatever it's called in Visual Studio. The scenario is I search on something and I get my search results. I pin the pad and then find a member in code and I right-click and find references on it, I just lost my search results.1 vote
By default, Xamarin Studio on Mac runs Console Applications with the system Terminal app even when default is iTerm2.
Add the option to choose the default terminal.8 votes
Under the users tab in xamarin insights dashboard it would be really awesome to have a total count of how many issues/crashes (including repeats) a user has experienced. This way we could judge who would be good candidates for testing bug fixes or have a way to reach out to them to help fix the issue.
You could put this count right next to the "Sessions" and "Last Seen" columns. Being able to sort of the issues to see the customers with the highest count of issues would be really awesome as well.1 vote
Improve on static code analysis tool by providing capability to present consolidated error/issue report. It would be nice if we could provide entire source base for analysis.3 votes

If a Xamarin project needs a different version of a NuGet package than one of its dependent packages has, then the auto-generated files at build time are malformed.
For example, if a project is created with a reference to the latest version of the Android support libraries, and we reference a package that uses an older version of that library, the app will fail to build because the Xamarin auto-generated files have multiple conflicting definitions.1 vote
When building the iOS project against a local build host, the build will complete without error if the buildhost is inaccessible and can't be connected to.
This leads to incorrect artifacts, such as Nuget packages without ipa files in them.
It is also easy to believe your code is building, when what really happened is the system stopped trying silently.
I would greatly prefer a loud error in this case.3 votes
The "Create Method" code assistance will infer the type of parameters based on variable type but does not attempt to extract a name for the parameters. If named parameters have been used in the method we're attempting to create then pull these out and enter them into the method signature.1 vote
For now as I understand if we want to read the source code of the open-source library we should create a project in the solution and compile this library and we can not use Nuget for this library.
It would be awesome if I could just right-click the reference library in xamarin and "attach" the source folder just to be able to read the implementation.1 vote
Develop with Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS with Xamarin.Forms or not i make a massive use of portable class library to share code. That sharing should be available to Xamarin.Mac as well.1 vote

In Java, you can attach the debugger to background service processes. Similar functionality (or just having the debugger attached at the creation of said service) would be nice.50 votes
Some MONTHS ago, I have suggested in a thread, to add a .Forms tag on the component store.
The answer was... good idea, we are working on.
What happens is... nothing.
.Forms is clearly the "draft horse" for Xamarin.
To add a tag for .Forms should be NO PROBLEM for Xamarin.
Actually it's not possible for a .Forms developer to search for components, that are DESIGNED for .FORMS.
We have to set all tags (iOS, Android and Windows) and the result is ... not correct.
So please add a .Forms tag to the component store!1 vote
