I suggest you ...

Add memory and performance profiler

As per subject. Those aren't showstoppers but it would be nice to have them.

    Please add this to Indie. We're not going to go from $25->$83 per platform per month forever just for this, but it is important for quality apps

    Can you open this up to indie? Fairly necessary to have profiling tools, even on an indie package.

    FYI profilers have been announced and demoed at Evolve! Previews should be downloadable any minute now (according to Miguel)

    Consider working with Red Gate to add Xamarin/Mono support to the ANTS profilers. These have worked wonders for our Windows desktop app. I'd love to be able to use them on our mobile apps too.

    Not nice going back to logging. :s

    I'm wondering how could you possibly relase an app in good conscience without a proper performance and memory profiling phase !?
    Even more for mobile apps..
    I can't, but I'm scared I'll have to at some point...

    Method profiling would be fantastic - something like ANTS where you can drill down to cumulatively lengthy methods, for example.

    I agree. It's currently very difficult to track down memory leaks.

  • Lars Krog-Jensen commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I can not agree more, this should be top priority.

    In my opinion Xamarin is very feature rich as is, and now we need tools to build demanding quality apps. Don't spend time on UI builders or such, and devote time for memory and performance profilers.
    Coming from WPF and WinForms development aswell as Java server side there are many top quality tools. Current state is like stepping back a decade in time.
