When adding a new item for a x.ios template there are two templates for 'Class'. The only way to differentiate is that they both have different icons.

The only reason I noticed was that the class with the class the a person icon (I have no other way to describe it, and can't guess at what it's supposed to be. I've attached an image that shows it), would not 'attach' to the project. It was completely impossible for me to call it from anywhere else, even if it was in the same namespace.
