Description John Miller [MSFT] 2015-12-14 21:26:30 UTC

   Using both Xamarin.Google.iOS.Analytics / MobileAds nuget packages causes MT5213 duplicate symbol errors.

   2. Build for Release / iPhone

**Actual Results:**

> Error MT5212: Native linking failed, duplicate symbol: '_OBJC_CLASS_$_PodsDummy_Pods'. (MT5212)
> Error MT5213: Duplicate symbol in: ../libFieldExporter.a(Pods-dummy.o) (Location related to previous error) (MT5213)
> Error MT5213: Duplicate symbol in: ../libAdmobExporter.a(Pods-dummy.o) (Location related to previous error) (MT5213)

I'm seeing the same issue. Any workaround would be great.
Comment 2 Christer Nordvik 2016-01-07 19:47:20 UTC
Any chance to bump the priority of this one? As far as I know it is now impossible to use Google Analytics and AdMob in the same app and that is a show stopper for us. We need the latest AdMob and GA libraries to take advantage of native ads and better tracking.

Any ETA on this? I'm also blocked from releasing new versions of my app because of this.
Comment 4 Israel Soto [MSFT] 2016-01-13 07:00:31 UTC
Fixed pods symbols problem in the following versions:

G.Analytics: v3.14.0.1
G.MobileAds: v7.6.0.1
