I would like to know if someone else has faced to the AppService in Xamarin. I'm going now to explain my situation.
I have developed in the past an UWP App with implemented an AppService feature (for communicate with a browser extension through interoperability with a Native Messaging Host application).
In this months I started to upgrade my App with Xamarin (for get improvement with the cross platform features).
I don't need to use an AppService for Android or iOS, but for UWP I would like to get it.
I found that the OnBackgroundActivated function is not called (in the Platform Specific Project for UWP).
I know that I can create a background task out-of-process but I don't know if it is the best (or the only) solution for an AppService.
First at all, why the OnBackgroundActivated is not called? Is it not expected in Xamarin Forms?
