I recently took the plunge and added iOS development for my Xamarin apps. An existing app which has shipped for Android and Windows built and runs fine for iOS about 95% only requiring some basic dependency files (Kudos to Xamarin for that). The stumper though has been adding a document picker so my users can import and export data as they do on the other two platforms. I found the Xamarin DocPicker example but it always fails to deploy because of not finding any available provisioning profiles for iOS.
So I created (supposedly) some profiles on the Apple Developer site as in the DocPicker's instructions including the CloudID (those instructions may be a little terse BTW). Seems though that provisioning is for Devices not the simulator if you follow the steps. So why would one be needed for the simulator? What am I missing?
