Missing many assemblies/ references


Hi there,

I'm a bit new to Xamarin development and am having trouble getting certain references such as StreamReader and Console. Is there a way I can add them to my project or is this a feature of Xamarin.Forms?

    You can't use System.Console because Windows Phone doesn't support it - one of the drawbacks of using PCL is that you can only use the features that every platform supports.

    You should be able to use StreamReader.

    I see, thanks for the help.
