C1 CMS system
where we read and post news into CMS system and other for one touristic
we download event data for specific location.
Both apps have
* DataGridViews for 2-3 lists(tables) something like master
* UserControl with fields for Detail
* Master and Detail have several buttons for "batch" operations
Nothing spectacular. Developed on Windows, checkin/commit, checkout on
Mac it works.
problematic - WebBrowser control - does not work on Mac (webkit vs
trident rendering engine in
WF.net). I know I could use Mono implementation, but then I would need a

Reasons for this:
* unit tests - we write those for desktop apps
* testing features and debugging Model/BusinessLogic (multithreading,
syncing etc) is
simply a lot faster on desktop.
Looks - not great (actually quite ugly), but for testing how code works
on Mac - just enough.
We live currently from iOS and Android, so reimplementing is Cocoa is
planned, but later.
