Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal) returns /var/mobile/Documents/ when the app is compiled for AppStore (at least). As this folder is readonly, the app crashes and is rejected by apple.
It should instead return the same value returned by NSFileManager.DefaultManager.GetUrls(NSSearchPathDirectory.DocumentDirectory, NSSearchPathDomain.User);
On ios7.1 device Environment.GetFolderPath... returns:
And GetUrls(NSSearchPathDirectory.DocumentDirectory... returns:
Which is different, but not annoying. On ios 8.1/iphone 6 GetFolderPath returns:
Which is a real problem.
Using Xamarin.iOS 188.8.131.52
This will be part of our upcoming 8.4.x service release.
