Do you use Hot Reload?

Developing mobile apps presents unique challenges compared to web or desktop development. One of the problems is that when using MVVM or using dynamic data on a page, you need to run your app to populate the data and see what your UI will actually look like.

To get around this problem use Hot Reload. This lets you make changes to your XAML while debugging your app - as soon as you save your UI will update, without having to stop and rebuild your app.
