Aspose, has added Xamarin.Android to the platforms that they support.
The first product to be launched on this platform is Aspose’s most popular product, Aspose.Words.
Aspose.Words for Xamarin.Android, is all about bringing the stunning features of Aspose.Words for .NET to the Xamarin.Android platform that makes it possible to do native Android development in C#, with either Visual Studio or Xamarin Studio.
Aspose.Words for Xamarin.Android is the first product of its kind on the API market. It makes it possible for Android developers to open, convert and combine Microsoft Word and other popular word processing file formats from within their native Android applications.
Android developers can give their users high-fidelity file conversions to and from DOC, OOXML, RTF, WordprocessingML, HTML, MHTML, TXT and OpenDocument formats. Full programmatic access through a rich API to all Word document elements and formatting allows developers to create, modify, extract, copy, split, join, and replace document content.
Android developers can convert whole documents or pages to PDF or XPS inside their native Android apps. All with high fidelity – exactly like Microsoft Word® would have done it. Android developers can now easily generate documents or reports from scratch or by filling templates with data from data sources or business objects.
Aspose’s ultimate goal is to port all features of Aspose.Words for .NET to Aspose.Words for Xamarin.Android API. Aspose also ensures that the learning curve is minimal because they borrow best practices from the Xamarin Design Guidelines and provide a balance of easy usage vs detailed document element manipulation.
