NET MAUI Session replay

If you're reading this, you're likely aware of Microsoft's move away from Xamarin and its evolution to .NET MAUI. You might wonder what it means for your app development process and, more importantly, your mobile app analytics process. Will you still be able to replay user sessions and analyze user interactions as you did with Xamarin?

Don't worry; we will unpack this for you. In this article, we'll explore the transition from Xamarin to .NET MAUI and discuss how UXCam keeps up with this shift, particularly with its session replay feature for .NET MAUI apps.

The leap from Xamarin to .NET MAUI

Before we dive into the specifics, let's briefly go over this transition. Xamarin has been a trusted ally for developers, offering a consolidated way to build iOS and Android apps using .NET and C#. But as with all tech, it's time for an upgrade, and Xamarin is evolving into .NET MAUI.

.NET MAUI, short for .NET Multi-platform App UI, is Microsoft's new framework for building native applications with .NET. It's essentially an evolution of Xamarin.Forms, which provides a unified stack that supports multiple platforms, including Android, iOS, macOS, and Windows.

This transition means you'll be working with a more streamlined framework that simplifies the process of developing apps for different platforms.

UXCam and the transition to .NET MAUI

If you are not using UXCam for mobile app analytics yet, here's the rundown. UXCam is a leader in mobile app analytics. It allows you to understand user behavior within your app, providing comprehensive insights that can inform improvements in your app's design and usability.

Now, to the burning question — "Does UXCam app analytics support the .NET MAUI framework?"

Yes, UXCam is compatible with the .NET MAUI framework. UXCam has ported its Xamarin library to the MAUI (.NET) platform, ensuring you don't lose out on any of its robust mobile app analytics features as you transition your mobile apps to .NET MAUI.
