Description Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2014-11-10 14:28:19 UTC
## Description:

When starting a new Forms PCL project in Visual Studio, the Assembly name is set to FormsTemplateiOS instead of the app name. This results in a warning that the assembly name and the app name do not match an thus may not be symbolicated properly. 

This is the warning:

Warning	1	The executable name (FormsTemplateiOS) and the app name (BuildErrorsiOS.app) are different, this may prevent crash logs from getting symbolicated properly.	C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Xamarin\iOS\Xamarin.iOS.Common.targets	385	3	BuildErrors.iOS

## Steps to reproduce

1. Open Visual Studio and create a new Forms PCL project.
2. Build and launch to device or simulator

Expected result: no warning about assembly name being different form the app name

Actual result: Above warning generated about assembly name being different form the app name

## To resolve:

Change the assembly name to match the app name.
