I am building a cross platform app and i want to release it to testers, but it doesn't work when i am deploying it in release mode. As far as exceptions go i do not get any. As stated in the question it works in debug mode. The app just goes to splashscreen and crashes. I ran the original app through test fairy and got this exception:

I cannot show you the source code, but i have reproduced the error in a new test solution.
Here is a link to the repository with the test project.
