Microsoft Health Vault compatibility with Xamarin RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    I am working on a Medical App which uses MicrosoftHealthVault. I have been developing with pure Object-C.

    App need to communicate with Health Vault APIs and other mediacl devices .

    We have plans to expand to Android and Windows OS.

    My question is -  Is Microsoft HealthVault allows using Xamarin to develop apps.(compatible with Xamarin?)

                           - Can i use Xamarin to work with MicrosoftHealthVault API to build application which will run on

                              IOS,Android,Windows 8 .

  • Hi Tiru,

    The HealthVault SDKs aren't Xamarin-compatible out of the box, however, you should be able to adapt the source for the Windows 8 SDK to be compatible for the HV interactions you need (i.e. service methods and data types). We're investigating ways to simplify the API usage so you wouldn't need to start with and modify the SDK.
