iOS programming question

I am building an iOS application that needs to login to my server for authentication. Of course, being a windows programmer it was quite easy to do in my world, but I am stuck as to how to start in iOS.

I am using the xamarin IDE and it allows for C# programming so the language is not a concern. I just can't find any tutorials on how to call a web service and consume it from within my iOS app. Plenty of talk about REST/JSON etc but no real world examples.

I have web services set-up already so that is not a problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should not have much trouble putting it together.  If you are only having trouble with the iOS side then that should all be the same.  Here are a couple of tutorials anyway.
