I'm evaluating Xamarin for my team's first mobile app. I've installed all the requirements and I believe I have everything set up correctly.
I created a new solution using the template "Mobile Apps -> Blank App (Xamarin.Forms Shared)".
I was unable to get this basic "hello, world" app to run at all using any of the Android Virtual Devices I tried. I eventually downloaded Genymotion and it worked with that.
When I tried to run the app on an iPhoneSimulator I saw an error about provisioning profiles. A search on this forum led me to removing the entitlements node from the csproject file. Thereafter, it would run and launch the iPhone Simulator on the build host, but it will now only show a black screen on the simulator for a few seconds and then the simulator's home screen reappears. It never shows the "hello, world" text. This is the same no matter which iOS device I simulate.
Is this another known issue with a workaround? My searches didn't turn up anything.
Any help would be appreciated.
