Since it's multiplatform, you can use it to create both web projects and applications for smartphones or tablets on iOS, Windows Phone, or Android systems. In fact, the latest versions of Visual Studio even include an emulator for the Google operating system so you can test your projects on virtual devices. Obviously, you can test by connecting physical devices, too, which can be set up with the installation wizard to integrate the SDK you need.
Visual Studio Community has the same features as the commercial professional edition, enabling you to create all types of projects, whether they're free or for-profit. The only catch is that its use is limited to non-business environments for teams of up to five people. Otherwise, your license is completely free and lets you install more than 1,500 extensions that make the tool even more useful.
