New – AWS Mobile SDK for Xamarin

As you can see from the AWS Tools page, we already support multiple mobile (iOS, Android, and Unity) and counter-top (Alexa / Echo) devices with SDKs for JavaScript, Java, .Net, Node.js, PHP, Python, Ruby, and Go, along with IDE toolkits for Eclipse and Visual Studio.
