I develop currently a watchface app with Xamarin Forms.
To choose a location in the world, the user have to tap the upper half of the screen. After then, i navigate to a ContentPage with a simple listview of the locations on it. But that is not a real good solution.
The samsung guide says it’s not a good idea to use a NavigationPage in a watchface app. Because it has limited functions (e.g. its not possible to use the hardware keys/bezel, keyboard and so on).
So i made a sub app (with XF) for this and start it via AppControl.
That works, but:
- The start of the sub app takes too much time. Is it possible to start it faster (preload)?
- A widget is not an alternative.
- Starts a Tizen NUI app much faster than a XF/.NET App? Could this be a solution?
Is anyone expierenced with Tizen and Xamarin Forms Watchfaces and such software design problems? Thanks for sharing your expierience…
