I have a relatively simple XF project that uses the PayPal SDK for Xamarin.Forms to collect payments.
The problem is that the size is around 120MB on iOS and 65MB on Android which I believe is way too much considering that I am using LLVM and Link All options.
Now, I am trying to explore all possible ways to shrink the app size as much as possible so I can compete with real native apps that offer the same functionality but are sizes less than 20MB!
One of the things I noticed as well is that Linker doesn't do much for me as when I disabled it, the increase in size was only 10MB!
My question is would it be better to use fully qualified names instead of using statements on top of the class?
System.IO.File.ReadAllLines or File.ReadAllLines (with using System.IO at top)?
