As a bit of background, I wrote about my early experience using Xamarin.Forms to create a simple cocktails app about a month ago. This seemed like a logical enough next step given my previous experience using Windows Forms, Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), and then the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) to create different versions of .NETpad, my Notepad clone. But Xamarin.Forms is not ideal, to put it mildly, and its successor, called .NET MAUI, is still 18 months from a public release. So I’ve been looking at alternatives.
