Visual Studio for Mac support is coming!

Visual Studio for Mac support is coming!

Where is MFractor for Visual Studio Mac? This is a question you’ve asked more and more frequently over the past few months.

Today I’m very pleased to announce that MFractor for Visual Studio Mac is on its way and will be more awesome than ever.

Over the next 2-3 months I will be finishing the VS-Mac port of MFractor and will release it by July 1st 2017 (but likely sooner if I’m happy with the product). The VS-Mac port will have all the current features plus a few cool new ones (more on that another day 😉).

As part of this port, a user account portal and sign in process will be introduced into the product; this is important so you can get in touch with me easily when you face issues, would like product training or need customer support.

And even better, MFractor for Visual Studio Mac will remain free for use for the the time being.

I’ve thought a lot about pricing for MFractor and decided that making an incredible developer experience is more important than revenue at this point in time. When we do decide to make MFractor a paid product you will receive at least 3 months notice of this switch.

My focus for the immediate future is to continue amplifying/improving the Xamarin experience and make it even easier and more enjoyable to build great apps.

Our New Home

Our New Home

Welcome to our new home! 

It's been a quite a journey but MFractor finally has a new, rebranded and swankier website! 

We hope you love what we've done with the place; this new site makes it easier to find documentation, emphasis the most important features you'll use in MFractor and is easier to navigate than our previous site.

We've been in the process of changing hosting providers for some time now. As we edged closer to making MFractor a paid product (more on that in coming months) we quickly realised that we had outgrown Wordpress.

We've now bit the bullet and have made the move to Shopify!

So come on in and let us show you around:

  • Our new landing page is streamlined to show you the most important features in MFractor and help you find documentation.
  • Did you need to grab a copy of MFractor? Then drop by our Download page to download latest version today.
  • You can learn to use MFractor by visiting our online documentation; we regularly post tutorials, feature how-tos and much more!
  • And lastly, checkout our news blog for all the latest product updates!
