Description Jeremy Kolb 2016-04-06 16:08:20 UTC
If I create a new Android project in Xamarin Studio it places a version of Icon.png in mipmap-hdpi, mipmap-mdpi, mipmap-xhdpi etc.

If I create a new Android project in Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 it places Icon.png in drawable.  This can be a problem for certain nuget packages (MvvmCross.StarterPack for example that expect Icon.png to be a @mipmap resource).
