Count Me Down

A Xamarin Android app.


A simple countdown timer and reminder app for the important events in your life.


C#, Xamarin, MVVM Cross and Java Library Binding

MvvmCross was used to bootstrap the development and saved me a considerable amount of time. Xamarin allows me to share a lot of my core code while still using native UI layers.

I created a Xamarin Java Binding project in order to re-use a Java cropping image library.

The original library is here and my Xamarin binding is here.

Visual Studio Mobile Centre

The Azure mobile centre was used to create builds and for analytics. It can connect directly to github and provides a nice continuous integration system, with an email being sent whenever a new build is ready.
