Overview

Mobile applications use notifications as an unobtrusive way of informing the user that some application specific event has happened. Notifications are typically used to notify the user of the status of an application process that is running in the background. An example of this might be downloading a large file. This file might take a long time to download, so this activity should occur in the background. When the download is complete, the user is informed of the fact by a notification. Additionally, notifications are not just limited to local applications. It is also possible for server applications to publish notifications to mobile applications.

Xamarin Workbook

If it's not already installed, install the Xamarin Workbooks app first. The workbook file should download automatically, but if it doesn't, just click to start the workbook download manually.
