Attached bug replication solution
On initial load of the page, the entry field does not gain focus, even though I am specifying it.
Navigate to another tab, and then back, and it will focus fine.
Reset to new main page, and the issue occurs again.
Solution attached to replicate - first tab.
This will require further investigation but looks to be reproducing with the project, although on my machine running on the desktop it appears to not focus at all despite switching tabs.
Focus fails (returns false) because the view has yet be be rendered on screen. You really need to be able to call Focus from an OnAppeared event which we do not yet expose. That feature and it's go/no-go progress is being tracked here: https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/84510/improved-life-cycle-support.
