    Besides that this is one of the most asked questions here.... There is now a previewer in the Alpha-Channel of Xamarain Studio on MAC, which will come to VS sometimes. Intellisense for Xaml is always a pain, which get's better if you use Resharper.

    There is another Previewer available that run s on the aktual Devices called Gorillaplayer http://gorillaplayer.com/ and soon there will be another interesting one https://www.xenforms.com/

    Hi Davide, XAML Preview: there is a new feature in the current Xamarin Studio Alpha-version called the Xamarin Forms Previewer. You may also try some 3rd party tools like Gorilla Player (http://www.gorillaplayer.com) or the FormsPlayer on GitHub (https://github.com/MobileEssentials/FormsPlayer).

    IntelliSense: I use ReSharper (https://www.jetbrains.com/resharper) - for me still one of the most important Visual Studio Tools. Provides IntelliSense for Xamarin.Forms XAML too.

    Cheers, Alex

    Michael is working hard on it, see https://trello.com/b/dAZJ4QkT/xenforms-beta-roadmap but he was a bit to fast when announcing the Beta ;-) But he promised it will be soon.

    Btw. I guess you are from Germany too? From where? I'm in Bonn

    @dvdsenatore Simple views are working fine with the Gorilla Player. But as soon as you use some XAML Extensions like for localization - that's it (for now). Since we are talking about Alpha-Versions it's fine - definitely a step in the right direction.

    @ThomasBurkhart I'm from Salzburg, Austria. You know the guys from XenForms?
