Forum Xamarin Cross Platform with Xamarin

XAML Iconpack

I can't seem to find any xamarin forms iconpacks that can be used in the shared project.
I don't understand why we are forced to use png/jpg etc.
For WPF I use mahapps icon pack or create icons using XAML. XAML is vector and it rocks.

Why would anyone consider managing seperate assets for all xamarin forms projects?

    Well... XAML is not vector. The underlying infrastructure of WPF on Windows understands vector. The same can't be said for Android and iOS. Thus Xamarin out of the box conforms to the lowest common denominator of the 5 platforms it supports.

    As Clint says - the problem is that each platform deals with icons/images differently.

    There are some libraries which do abstract across platforms (e.g. Forms9Patch) however. We've used Forms9Patch in our Xamarin.Forms project. There are probably others...
