Description Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-10-01 23:06:32 UTC
Xamarin.Forms does not currently support usage of an AppCompat derived activity. This limits the users ability to match modern Android look and feel.
Comment 1 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-10-01 23:44:11 UTC
This has been fixed in 1.5.1-pre1

Comment 2 Parmendra Kumar 2015-10-07 06:38:55 UTC
I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms 1.5.1-pre1 and observed that Xamarin.Forms does support AppCompatActivity.

Hence closing this issue.
