We just tried to do the sample Xamarin forms app from this page.
The only thing we did differently was we used a shared project vs a PCL.
Everything works great when we pull up the UWP app or Android app in Xamarin Live Player.
The issue is when we use try to use the Live player on iOS.
When we click the button to Translate we get an exception.
When we stepped through debugging when we call Core.PhonewordTranslator.ToNumber(phoneNumberText.Text) it passes in the value of (null).
That's not NULL, its a string with a values of "(null)" rather than the default "1-855-XAMARIN".
I don't have a Mac handy to test a real deployment to see if it is an issue there as well.
Has anyone else experienced this kind of issue?
Hey there! can you attach your sample project.
For iOS can you validate the version your using under about/info?
I am attaching the project.
On Anroid I am on 1.2.80 but on iOS I have the latest on the app store 1.0.252 i think.
Sorry for the large size.

Is there anything you can do?
By the way we have meet a few times at both Xamarin Evolve and last Octobers Dev Intersection.
Keep up the good work over there.
I will process them today :)
Actually can you sign up here: http://aka.ms/liveplayeralpha
It now has instant access :)
Oh that is awesome! glad to run into you again :)
Will close for now since the new one fixes this.
I was able to get the latest version from Test flight and I still get the same error where is passes the string of "(null)".
Not sure what the issue is.
Can you please check the solution I uploaded?
hmmmm, will test out the uploaded version :) thanks for the feedback!
Tracy, so it looks like if you add a break point to:
Line 22 in LoginPage.xaml.cs you will see that the actual number is being passed in.
However you are right that it "says" it is null actually inside the method even though it is not. Even though it says null the value is still there and the method executes correctly.
I will mark this as confirmed, but just some weird locals/watch coming up.
