Ok so the Xamarin.Forms application I made works great on my tester phone (all Android devices- even though it is a Xamarin.Forms application. IOS is not a platform i am supporting because I use serial ports), I put it onto another an well.. not so much. The first page in my navigation stack opens and runs as expected. Its a Masterdetail page with 3 slide menus (default left slider which comes with the master detail page, a bottom menu from SlideOverKit nuget, and a right slider i made by wrapping the contents of my page in an absoluteLayout and then using animations to slide a content view onto the screen) this all works as expected on bootup. Once I navigate to the next page (push it onto my navigation stack) that page is not able to do animations (ones that are able to be done on the previous page), it is not able to display content views that should appear when a button is clicked (with the .IsVisable property - wrapped in an absolute layout again) even though it registers the click and sets the property to true and if i set the IsVisible = true in the page initialization it appears in its correct place and with the right functionality (though it wont disappear when IsVisible =false ) , and then once I navigate to the first page again it is in a similar state - the UI elements (animations and menus) wont work anymore... Any ideas. The app works perfectly fine on my other device. I thought originally it might be the API of the device (the one that works is 23+ and the one that doesn't is 22) but the animations and Absolute layout work on the first page - so its not that its unsupported... Any ideas?
PS if code is needed I can post it, but i really didn't know what sections would be useful.
