A core bug? The app always goes to home page when i tap the launcher icon but if i bring it from background using "Recents" button, then it works. Fix/Workaround?

Do you have a reproduction?
Comment 2 Alex Rainman 2016-09-29 21:21:19 UTC
Easy to reproduce. Just update to Xamarin.iOS 10 with any version of forms over
Comment 3 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2016-11-09 20:20:10 UTC
We have tested both iOS 10 and Android and are unable to reproduce this issue.
Comment 4 Alex Rainman 2016-11-09 20:21:34 UTC
This happens when we compile a Forms app with latest Xamarin Studio.
Comment 5 Alex Rainman 2016-11-09 21:00:21 UTC
We have bunch of issues that Dan Waters is following. Compiling Forms app with XS 6.1 an above makes it crash. Any version of Forms bigger than makes the app unstable and full of bugs. Android 7 makes the app crash on startup (something related with shared runtime). iOS 10 was unstable also but got better with latest patch.

We are using XS 6.0, XForms and Android 7 to do release builds.

We no longer believe this is an issue due to a lack of reports from users for quite some time now. If you find that it still occurs, please reopen this and attach a minimized reproduction project if the issue still exists as of the latest prerelease or nightly build.
