Created attachment 15906 [details]

The attached sample uses deep linking and works fine on iOS (although the KeyValues collection is always empty, see #40830). 

The droid project has the AndroidAppLinking NuGet package installed, and calls AndroidAppLinking.Init from the MainActivity class. When you add a new item an ArgumentException is thrown when RegisterLink is called, with the error "No IAppIndexingProvider was provided".

Sample attached. In the sample you need to add a new item (the + item) to create a deep link.

Can you try with AppCompact support?!
Comment 2 David Britch 2016-05-06 14:49:04 UTC
It works fine when using AppCompat.
Comment 3 Rui Marinho 2016-05-25 14:00:19 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.3.0-pre3
Comment 4 Parmendra Kumar 2016-07-01 09:20:44 UTC
I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms 2.3.1-pre1 and its working fine.

Hence closing this issue.
