Updating ListView via ObservableCollection

When you bind a ListView to an ObservableCollection, in Android it successfully updates the listview each time you update the ObservableCollection, but it doesn't in UWP.

It will work however, if you make sure you are updating the ObservableCollection in the UI Thread. It's not a major bug, but it's a discrepancy between UWP and other platforms, as I believe, just with INPC, it should ensure it's on the right thread when going to the UI.

I was able to reproduce this issue using the attached project. This issue appears to happen when updating the ObservableCollection via a background thread so as mentioned in the description, making the update on the UI thread resolves the issue.

### Version Test   BAD
2.3.5-pre6  BAD
