.NET / Xamarin is not the only mobile portable platform...
I just realized Ruby language could be used for iOS & Andorid Apps with RubyMotion
So can Python, with Kivy

RubyMotion - Wikipedia
"RubyMotion is an implementation of the Ruby programming language
that runs on iOS, OS X and Android. RubyMotion is a commercial product"

"Kivy - Open source Python library for rapid development of applications
that make use of innovative user interfaces, such as multi-touch apps.

Kivy runs on Linux, Windows, OS X, Android and iOS. You can run the same code on all supported platforms. It can use natively most inputs, protocols and devices"
