Any idea how I can load the contacts screen cross platform and then retrieve contact data? RRS feed

    I'm using xamarin forms and would like the user to select contacts from the device contacts (ios and Android). What I'm looking to do is supply the user with the native contacts list on the device, allow them to choose and then return data about the contact to be used in the app.

    Any ideas on how this could be done?

    @ChrisVardon - The Xam.Plugin.Contacts plugin provides access to contact information, but you would need to build your own UI to use the data it returns.
