    I'm using same code as @Charlin and I have error on if(actionBar.TabCount > 0) it saying actionBar.TabCount is 0
    and app crash. thank you.

    In Android showing tab bar on top and in IOS showing it on Bottom is default Native Behavior. I recommend not to alter it.
    If its necessary then make a custom tab bar by making a buttons stack at your won location choice. Unfortunately Xamarin isnt providing too much editing options for a Tab Page. Even you need to use the custom renderer for changing the colors of tabs.
    so if you can afford make your own tab bar.
