MonoDevelop is described as 'enables developers to write desktop and web applications on Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. It also makes it easy to port .NET applications created with Visual Studio to Linux and Mac OS X maintaining a single code base for all platforms' and is a well-known app in the Development category. There are more than 25 alternatives to MonoDevelop for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, the Web and .NET Framework. The best alternative is Microsoft Visual Studio. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try SharpDevelop or kodeWeave. Other great apps like MonoDevelop are JetBrains Rider (Paid), Delphi (Paid), CodeTyphon (Free, Open Source) and React Studio (Freemium).
