Sometimes in this beautiful world of cross-platform mobile development, we come across a problem that makes no sense at first. But after some StackOverflow surfing and Xamarin/MSDN research, we may find a way to tackle that problem. In some scenarios, there are multiple solutions and we have to decide which approach works best given our situation. In this post, I will demonstrate one of these problems, rather scenarios. The multi-tap monstrosity on Android when using Xamarin.Forms.
On my last project, I wanted to design one of the screens to look like Google Newsstand’s swiping tabs that were also scrollable and had an image between the ActionBar and the tabs.
I did not find any simple and useful solution to this that I could easily follow and implement in my app. So I created my own. Here’s how it looks like.
