    It isn't created by default. If you want to add one:

    • For Visual Studio - go to Project Options, select the AndroidManifest.xml tab.
    • For Xamarin Studio - go to Project Options, select Build...Android Application.

    If you want to see the AndroidManifest.xml that is used to create your .apk, see obj\$(Configuration)\android\AndroidManifest.xml.

    It would be useful to add this information to the Hello Android walkthrough: http://developer.xamarin.com/guides/android/gettingstarted/hello,android/hello,androidquickstart/

    Project > PhoneworldDroid &Options > Build > AndroidApplication > Add Android Manifest

    I see it was still not added to the Quick start guide, which was a bit confusing. It would be nice if it was added. Oh, and thanks for the responses!

    Hi @JohnIreton - can't find the manifest either and ecded up here - I've gone to:

    Project > PhoneworldDroid &Options > Build > AndroidApplication

    but I can't see "Add Android Manifest" anywhere???

    Should it be a button? One of the Required Permissions?

    I wonder if I'm on the correct screen? The options I see are: Application Name Package Name Application Icon Version Number Version Name Minimum Android Version Target Android Version Install Location Required Permissions

    Am I on the correct screen??? Thanks

    @JohnIreton - So I still can't find the screen you're on about but I have found the Manifest - for anyone using Visual Studio, the file should be available via the solution explorer:

    In your Android App, expand the Properties node and it should be there - along with the AssemblyInfo.cs file.

    Hope this helps someone.
