Once when you have installed Xamarin on your PC, you can get starting with Xamarin. You need to:
- Update Android SDK Tools
- Install USB device driver on you mobile
- Put USB option on your mobile on USB Debugging option.
Check if mobile device working properly by going on Toolsâ†’Open Android SDK Command Prompt
And then give command: adb logcat
If your mobile device responding, you are ready to start working with your Xamarin project. By default, your new project will be set on latest framework. If your mobile device hasn’t this framework, your application won’t run. So go to Projectâ†’YourProjectName Options
And then, in Buildâ†’Generalâ†’Target framework
Make sure that you have correct API installed for chosen target framework in your Android SDK manager. To launch the SDK Manager in Xamarin we need to go select Tools â†’ Open Android SDK Manager
Then check and install your API packages
Hopefully, now you have everything to start programming android application in Xamarin.
