Visual Studio Mobile Center

Xamarin

Introduction

The Mobile Center Xamarin SDK lets you add Mobile Center services to your iOS and Android applications. Each service comes with their own module and you can quickly add the services that interests you to build your app.

The SDK is currently in private beta release and we support the following services:

  1. Analytics: Mobile Center Analytics helps you understand user behavior and customer engagement to improve your app. The SDK automatically captures session count, device properties like model, OS Version etc. and pages. You can define your own custom events to measure things that matter to your business. All the information captured is available in the Mobile Center portal for you to analyze the data.

  2. Crashes: The Mobile Center SDK will automatically generate a crash log every time your app crashes. The log is first written to the device’s storage and when the user starts the app again, the crash report will be forwarded to Mobile Center. Collecting crashes works for both beta and live apps, i.e. those submitted to Google Play or other app stores. Crash logs contain viable information for you to help resolve the issue. The SDK gives you a lot of flexibility how to handle a crash log. As a developer you can collect and add additional information to the report if you like.
