Is there a particular emulator/device you're using where the soft buttons are overlapped? It seems like the footer being at the bottom of the page is just a UWP thing; if you use a ListView with a footer in a regular UWP app, it puts it at the bottom as well.

I inadvertently noticed that putting it in a NavigationPage seems to do the trick, though?
Comment 3 Jimmy [MSFT] 2016-08-17 23:17:35 UTC
Yeah I also noticed that the footer being anchored to the bottom is UWP behavior. 

I tested on a Lumia 950 and it overlaps when _not_ inside a NavigationPage. However, I tested with just using a Label with VerticalOptions = End and it was also overlapped so I don't think this is specific to the ListView, but to the Page.

I too experience this problem. Is there any fix or workaround?
