UI is the Bottle Neck

   Many companies are jumping in and try to port iOS to Android and vice-versa.
Specially if you are using Xamarin, it should be easy, right?  As one "expert" told me: "It is everything C#, so you should be done porting it in no time " ...
Well, it is not that easy . The biggest obstacle is using UI in a platform independent way .  I think each page could be defined with 3 markup files. One would contain "WHAT" has to be displayed, the second "WHERE" it should be displayed and  the third would define binding to underlying models .
Three files should be used in order to support "separation of concerns".

Stay tuned, working on it , :)
