Cross-Platform Data logger App Development Using Xamarin [Case Study]

15 May 2024

Platform-agnostic mobile apps have become an important aspect to cover a wider audience and improve market share. Be it customer engagement, brand awareness, or increasing sales revenue, cross-platform mobile app development is an excellent approach for building apps that run across platforms.

Rishabh Software partnered with a leading US-based data logger manufacturing company to rebuild its existing iOS app using Xamarin. The objective was to assist our client reach to a wider audience and simplify their end-user experience with the custom data logger app.

Project Overview

A data logger manufacturing company was on the lookout for a technology partner to enhance their mobile application, which was initially built using Objective-C and limited to iOS devices & operating system. The client wanted to improve cross-platform compatibility and also make it convenient to download and manage data from Bluetooth loggers, especially from hard-to-reach or restricted locations. As an experienced cross-platform mobile app development company, Rishabh Software helped the client with cross-platform data logger app development using Xamarin accessibility and better serve their customer base.


  • Existing app failed to tap into the Android user base due to its limited operating system compatibility
  • Maintaining separate codebases for iOS and Android could incur higher maintenance costs
  • Performance bottlenecks of the existing iOS app built using Objective-C impacted user experience when handling large datasets
  • Future uncertainty of Objective-C posed a risk for scalability and integration with cutting-edge frameworks and libraries


To address the challenges, we executed a holistic approach and defined a process for cross-platform data logger app development using Xamarin to deliver a native user experience. Our streamlined development process reduced costs and expedited time-to-market, allowing the client to reach a wider audience faster.

Key Components of The Solution

Cross-Platform Compatibility

By leveraging the code reusability feature of Xamarin, we developed a single codebase in C# to deploy across multiple platforms. This reduced development time and costs, allowing for a faster rollout and broader market reach.

Performance Optimization

Our team prioritized performance enhancements using Xamarin’s native bindings library. This facilitated seamless integration with native operating system-specific APIs and optimized the data logger app’s responsiveness and efficiency to handle large datasets.
