no tool is worth that.

That's how I feel at the moment for Xamarian. It's very nice and all for doing Android dev in C#, but not worth the money (I certainly won't pay 400 bucks just for hobby projects with it). If I had a great app idea and wanted to implement it in C#, then maybe the commercial license, but why when there's Eclipse?
