There are a number of posts about using custom fonts in Xamarin.Forms. However, embedded fonts definitely takes the cake. No more platform-specific handling of fonts and adding font files in three different projects. Just one file and an attribute in your shared code and your font is ready to go. In this post we will see how to use it in Xamarin.Forms 4.5.530 and up.

Life Before Embedded Fonts

As mentioned, there are a couple of posts on using custom fonts already. The most recent one can be found here. In that post, you will see, that depending on the platform, you would need to go through some hoops. Such as adding an entry to the metadata or adding the font file to each target platform project. As well as setting the right build action, finding out the correct font name, and then cross your fingers everything was right the first time.

Written down like this, it doesn’t seem like a lot of work and granted. You only have to do it once (per font), but it can still be a hassle. Especially the part about finding the correct font-family name (or postscript name), involves some trail-and-error. If you have worked with custom fonts before, you already know these embedded fonts will be a big improvement.

How To Use Embedded Fonts

As of Xamarin.Forms 4.5, we will make your life a bit easier yet again. In just three simple steps, we will add a font to use across iOS, Android and UWP.

1. Add the font file (otf or ttf) to your shared project and mark it as embedded resource

Simply add the font file Samantha.ttf to any folder in your project and set the Build Action to EmbeddedResource. In this case, find it here.

2. Add ExportFont attribute in your shared project

The most obvious place would be inside your App.xaml.cs or AssemblyInfo.cs. However, since the attribute will register this on assembly level, you can put this anywhere. The placement of the attribute depends on how visible you want to make it to other/future developers.

Apple unveils new iPad Pro with 3D Scanner

Cupertino, California — Apple today announced its most advanced iPad Pro. Now with the A12Z Bionic chip, iPad Pro is faster and more powerful than most Windows PC laptops. The new iPad Pro adds an Ultra Wide camera, studio-quality mics and a breakthrough LiDAR Scanner that delivers cutting-edge depth-sensing capabilities, opening up more pro workflows and supporting pro photo and video apps. The LiDAR Scanner, along with pro cameras, motion sensors, pro performance, pro audio, the stunning Liquid Retina display and powerful apps, extends the lead of iPad Pro as the world’s best device for augmented reality (AR). The new iPad Pro is available to order starting today on apple.com.

With iPadOS 13.4, Apple brings trackpad support to iPad, giving customers an all-new way to interact with their iPad.

As users move their finger across the trackpad, the pointer elegantly transforms to highlight user interface elements. Multi-Touch gestures on the trackpad make it fast and easy to navigate the entire system without users ever lifting their hand.

Apple today also introduced the new Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro. With a floating design with smooth angle adjustment, a backlit keyboard and trackpad, the Magic Keyboard delivers the best typing experience ever on iPad. The Magic Keyboard will be available for purchase in May.

There’s no other device in the world like the new iPad Pro and we think our customers are going to love it.”

“We’re making iPad even more capable and versatile by bringing trackpad support to iPadOS,” said Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “We carefully considered the best way to integrate trackpad use into a touch-first environment while retaining everything our customers thrilled to bring this new way of interacting with iPad to the millions of people using iPadOS today.”

As COVID-19 changes everything about life and work, digital commerce is becoming the only way business can be done for thousands of companies around the world.

That has industries that have historically relied on in-person selling and customer interactions – including restaurants, retail stores, and wholesalers – scrambling to go all-digital, modernizing and optimizing their operations to support customers.

In fact, companies of all sizes have an opportunity to engage existing customers and reach new ones by making every interaction a shoppable experience. The idea that people “buy experiences, not products” can serve as a guiding principle for companies of all sizes, executives said during an Adobe Summit digital keynote presentation.

“Every customer has a journey, and [businesses] want to be able to help customers in their journey,” said Anil Chakravarthy, executive vice president and general manager of digital experience at Adobe, in a “fireside chat” with Jason Woosley, vice president of commerce at Adobe.

Beforehand, Woosley talked about the importance of making every experience personal and shoppable.

“This is what we call experience-driven commerce,” which describes how brands—”from nimble startup to the very largest enterprise”—increase revenue, average order value, and customer lifetime value, he said.

According to Chakravarthy, who prior to joining Adobe had been chief executive of Informatica, an Adobe partner and leader in enterprise data management, developing a digital experience strategy has three major parts.

Businesses first need to evaluate the customer data and insights required to implement a digital-first or digital-only strategy. Data should include customer profiles and histories of their interactions and transactions to form the basis of an informed strategy.

The second component builds on that information with a data-driven operating model (DDOM) to track the customer journey through the phases of “discover, try, buy, use, and renew,” Chakravarthy said. “Every customer has that journey.”

Every stage of that journey requires a strategy to mix content and commerce, the third major component of a winning strategy. Commerce-driven content not only includes a website or mobile app, but also a strategy to personalize the experience for each platform.

Businesses must look at “how to make every experience a commerce experience, make every experience shoppable,” Chakravarthy said.

The coronavirus has made these strategies even more urgent for many businesses whose traditional sales channels face significant disruptions. Health officials worldwide have urged people to stay home, while government authorities in many regions have ordered businesses to shut down as part of their “social distancing” policies.

“For a lot of [e-commerce] customers, it’s really about moving to a digital-first economy, and for many it’s a digital-only environment where they can interact with their own customers,” Chakravarthy said.

He noted a distinction between two “classes” of customers: those that already had an e-commerce presence—”and now it takes on increased importance”—and those that historically didn’t have a strong e-commerce presence “and now they have to be online, otherwise they’ve essentially shut themselves off from the world, and so they are scrambling and trying to get that digital commerce going as quickly as they can.”

Apple today released a new screening tool and set of resources to help people stay informed and take the proper steps to protect their health during the spread of COVID-19, based on the latest CDC guidance. The new COVID-19 website, and COVID-19 app available on the App Store, were created in partnership with the CDC,1 the White House Coronavirus Task Force and FEMA to make it easy for people across the country to get trusted information and guidance at a time when the US is feeling the heavy burden of COVID-19.

Apple releases new COVID-19 app and website

                             

The COVID-19 app and website allow users to answer a series of questions around risk factors, recent exposure and symptoms for themselves or a loved one. In turn, they will receive CDC recommendations on next steps, including guidance on social distancing and self-isolating, how to closely monitor symptoms, whether or not a test is recommended at this time, and when to contact a medical provider. This new screening tool is designed to be a resource for individuals and does not replace instructions from healthcare providers or guidance from state and local health authorities.

The app and website also offer access to resources to help people stay informed and get the support they need. Users will receive answers to frequently asked questions about COVID-19, including who is most at risk and how to recognize symptoms. In addition, they will learn the most up-to-date information from the CDC like best practices for washing hands, disinfecting surfaces and monitoring symptoms.

Users can answer a series of questions around risk factors, recent exposure and symptoms in order to receive CDC recommendations on next steps. They can also access a set of resources from the CDC to help them stay informed and get the support they need.

Along with the new COVID-19 app and website, customers across the US may also ask Siri, “How do I know if I have coronavirus?” to access guidance and resources from the CDC and a curated collection of telehealth apps available on the App Store. This week travellers landing at select international airports throughout the US started receiving notifications on their iPhone to remind them of current CDC guidance to stay home and monitor their health.

 

Consistent with Apple’s strong dedication to user privacy, the COVID-19 app and website were built to keep all user data private and secure. The tools do not require a sign-in or association with a user’s Apple ID, and users’ individual responses will not be sent to Apple or any government organization.
