    Blank app, as name suggest it doesn't included any predefined/templated pages, you can notice that default MainPage is a XAML page. So, you don't necessarily need a blank app (xaml) template

    @ShantimohanElchuri sir am not getting crossplatform in left side under visual c# and also xamlpage in the right side list
    .list view page is there but it didn't work properly

    @suhailummerkutty No problem. We also seeing the same thing. Here is the explanation:

    1. First, since you are adding an item to a cross-platform project, all the items in the list are pertain to the cross-platform.
    2. Second, now Xamarin templates default to XAML. That's why the pages that are non-xaml have got the C# suffix.

    Select the 2nd item "Content Page" for XAML page.
