Xamarin Wrapper for Estimote Beacons for iPhone

Estimote Beacons

I’ve created a Xamarin Wrapper for Estimote Beacons for iPhone today.

At the company I work for we want to create a “find your colleague” app for iPhone. We will do this using Bluetooth beacons from the company Estimote¬†http://www.estimote.com. Estimote Beacons are small BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) radio beacons. If you want to read more about them and how they work technically, read the API documentation.

Today I started tinkering with them. Because Estimote provides an iOS library to “talk” to the beacons, I decided to create a Xamarin Wrapper, because there wasn’t any yet..

Here it is on GitHub: https://github.com/woutercx/Xamarin-EstimoteBeacons
