            var content = new StringContent(json, Encoding.UTF8, "application/json");
            HttpResponseMessage response = await client.GetAsync("");
            await Task.Delay(5000);
            if (response.IsSuccessStatusCode)

    What error do you get? I think the latest iOS only allows https unless you put an exception in info.plist

    Hi Shahul,

    try using this line before sending request
    client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Accept.Add (new MediaTypeWithQualityHeaderValue("application/json"));
