In recent weeks I have been training myself on Xamarin and Forms by writing a small but functional App that deploys to all 3 phones. All signs so far are that it will succeed.
I now have to write an enhanced version of the phone App so that it specifically targets all 3 tablet devices with a richer UI. My recent experience shows that almost everything in Xamarin and the tooling is geared by default to phone development. I have been unable to coax some simulators into running in tablet/pad mode, and there are so many configuration options for projects, simulators and other tools that I can't find a way of consistently setting them all so my development experience for this new project defaults to tablets. Is there guidance somewhere on how to consistently target tablet/pad devices for a project?
