  1. Glide

    Glide

    It would be awesome if the performant Image loading library Glide would be available as Xamarin Component. Gide's memory footprint is almost half of Picasso's. We've tried to bind Glide but have a problem with it.

    Link to Glide: https://github.com/bumptech/glide

    • Cross Platform In-App-Purchases

      A library which simplifies the purchases of In-App-Content on different platforms a lot. On every platform the user should be able to use the same classes ( with some differences in creation the classses ).

      To stay flexible, the user should be able to implement the base class with a own background class ( useful when working with steam a.e. or any other platform ).

        Good suggestion, and looks like a healthy interest in this. We’ll take a look.

      • Facebook Native SDK for Android

        Currently WebVeiw based cross platform Facebook SDK is the only option on Android which does not provide as convenient UI as Facebook Native SDK. Currently Facebook Native SDK is only available for IOS in Xamarin.

          • Urban Airship Support

            I would like to see Urban Airship support in Component Stores, since Urban Airship is the most popular notification service beside standard push notification offered by Apple and Google. Currently, the Urban Airship binding in Github is pretty out-dated (only support v1.2, current version is 1.4). And, only support partial of its apis and don't have Android support at all.

                  • Calendar for Xamarin.Forms

                    There is just one free solution for this problem. I think I'm not alone with this problem. We need a great looking calendar for Xamarin.Forms. The free solution is not the best, it needs some improvments and it has some issues (look in the GitHub Forum of the repository). The paid version is just so expensive that no students like me can afford it. I love the idea of Xamarin but there a not enough essential components. Thanks!

                            There isn't a component to make some AB Testing (layout, functionality...). It'll be interesting.

                                  • Facebook POP

                                    Facebook just put POP, the animation framework behind its new app Paper, on Github! It's here:
                                    https://github.com/facebook/pop

                                    It would be great to see it as a component for Xamarin.

                                    • Allow components to install into PCL projects

                                      Some components are based on portable class libraries. JSON.NET is a good example. For these types of components, it should be possible to install them into PCL projects. The component author would specify that their package includes libraries that target a particular set of portable profiles. This would be functionally similar to NuGet's support for PCLs.
