Description Prashant Cholachagudda 2016-05-31 05:17:26 UTC
A Xamarin.Forms app hangs whenever it's run on the a device with a data set some time in the past.

1. Build the attached sample project in Visual Studio with a "debug" target 
2. Deploy to an Android device. (Preferably Nexus 6 running Marshmallow 6.0)
3. Before launching the app, set the devices date\time to sometime in the past.
4. Launch the app

Expected result: App launches and displays a "Welcome to Xamarin Forms" screen
Actual results: App launches but then hangs (doesn't display "Welcome" text).

I've been trying to reproduce this issue on a Nexus device and so far I've been unable to. 

How far in the past is the date you're using?
