    Is there any working way to connect to postgreSQL? I try Npgsql, but i get error Could not install package 'Npgsql 2.2.3'. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets 'portable-net45+win+wp80+MonoTouch10+MonoAndroid10+xamarinmac20+xamarinios10', but the package does not contain any assembly references or content files that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author.

    You'll need a PCL assembly to add to the Xamarin Forms assembly, and it will need to support the platforms listed. It doesn't appear from NuGet that Npgsql is a portable library.

    The way to talk to any datastore in the universe is to us a WCF service client in the PCL and a WCF service in a .NET class project. You will then have any access to all of the .NET framework outside the PCL enclosure.

    The whole world of .NET waits outside your PCL project.
