    We have a guide that talks in detail about considerations of using UITest vs. Calabash here: https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/testcloud/choosing-a-framework/

    Since you noted that you're already using Xamarin.iOS, than Xamarin.UITest might be more straightforward for you, since with it test scripts are written in C#, while Calabash uses Ruby instead; like this flowchart from that guide shows:

    This guide describes to how you can add Xamarin.UITest to an existing Xamarin solution: https://developer.xamarin.com/guides/testcloud/uitest/adding-uitest/
