Gorilla Player is a free XAML previewer for Xamarin.Forms designed to efficiently create multi-platform UIs. It supports previewing in multiple simulators and real devices simultaneously. Gorilla doesn’t impose constraints to your XAML, supporting custom controls, custom renderers and MVVM frameworks like Prism.
Working in a small team with frequent design changes, the extension for Zeplin helps us quickly implement the design. It is also convenient due to its ability to generate a ResourceDictionary for Xamarin.Forms with all your colors and style.
Whether you are developing for web or creating mobile apps, Zeplin is a great tool that can boost your productivity by bridging the gap between design and code. Zeplin is a service available for free, but with one active project limitation.
n a previous blog we discussed obfuscating your Xamarin application with Dotfuscator Community to protect it from reverse-engineering.

This new extension makes it super simple to get access to everything you need to sign your app!
