Multiplayer in MonoTouch

The easy way is to use GameKit, good starting article at :

Though what I *really* want to do is create an ad-hoc wifi network… So far it seems that apple has restricted devs to only access existing wifi networks (IE you aren’t allowed to create your own ad-hoc network on the iphone). I’m assuming this is a “feature” designed to make it more difficult to find a way to tether your iPhone to another device.

Oh well. Buzzwordingo should have chat capabilities soon enough.

    There are other options as well for building multiplayer games using MonoTouch. You can see AppWarp cross-platform multiplayer game engine. I wrote a blog post recently on using it here – http://blogs.shephertz.com/2013/02/15/build-cross-platform-realtime-games-and-apps-using-mono/
