    What's the best way to access the phonebook and send sms to a contact on Xamarin.Forms. Is there any good package or plugin fro Xamarin.Forms I can use to accomplish this task? Keep in mind I want it to be cross-platform. Thank you in advance for the replies.

    This is now withdrawn from Nuget and not under development. Is there anything more recent that replaces this or another cross platform solution?

    Hi everyone, I am trying to access the contacts from a Forms application. Do you have any updates regarding this plugin? Is it a good idea to use it?
