Common Questions
What is App shell Xamarin?

Why use Xamarin forms shell?
Xamarin.Forms Shell makes it easy to implement both UI views as well as customize the views to match the theme of an app. However, when the standard tabs and flyouts aren’t enough, custom renderers can be used to provide a truly unique and customized UI for either Android or iOS.

What are the common navigations available in Microsoft Visual Studio Xamarin?
There are basically 2; Flyout and Tabs
Flyout. A flyout is the optional root menu for a Shell application, and is accessible through an icon or by swiping from the side of the screen. The flyout consists of an optional header, flyout items, optional menu items, and an optional footer.
Tabs. After a flyout, the next level of navigation in a Shell application is the bottom tab bar. Alternatively, the navigation pattern for an application can begin with bottom tabs and make no use of a flyout. In both cases, when a bottom tab contains more than one page, the pages will be navigable by top tabs.
