This looks similar to an issue under seen under OS X on a forum post, so this might not be VS-specific:
Fixed in https://github.com/xamarin/XamarinVS/commit/b75ed330a5976c065abee078b0eeb45314c268dd
The workaround is to open your project settings, open the iOS Application section, then fill in a value for Application Name and Identifier.
Application name can be any plain text string.
Identifier is any string in the form: com.foo.bar
I don't know how strict iOS is on these strings, but the above should always work ok.
The workaround does not work for me, because even I press the save button, the fields Application Name, Identifier and Version are not saved. i.e. if I close the window and open it again the Input fields are empty....
the settings are saved, when I edit the "Info.plist" file directly!
It does not work, when editing via the APP - Properties...
This issue was fixed recently, could you try the latest Xamarin.iOS for VS alpha? Version 1.8 should be available in the Alpha channel and should contain a fix for the bug where you can't save all the changes in the info.plist file.
One other thing, when the iOS simulator has been launched you may have to use 'Reset Content and Settings' option in the iOS simulator itself. That should wipe any broken files/settings from the simulator if they aren't automatically wiped/replaced when you upload the fixed Info.plist.
I'll close the bug again once you confirm everything is working as expected.
Thanks- the workaroud works for me....
