    I have noticed that Workbooks is capable of almost instantly updating the iOS agent app. Is this something that can be utilized from visual studio?

    For example I would like to change background color on the main view controller and then see it changed in the simulator without relaunching the app.

    You can do this sort of thing using Xamarin Inspector: https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/inspector/ . It's based on the same code as Workbooks; it just connects to your own app instead.

    Inspector is an Enterprise-only feature.

    I though Xamarin Live Player was only for XAML views but it seems much more capable. Thanks, I will check it out.

    Tested the Live Player and it's way too buggy (due to the interpreter I guess). I will stick to Workbooks for now.
