    Xamarin forms evolution is too slow! we need a lot of more serious APIs than this.

    Hi James,

    Always great to watch the Xamarin Show! Just to get to the point quickly, I have been struggling to find a way to receive shared text, images, links from other apps. Basically I created an iOS Xamarin app extension so that when the system menu is open my Xamarin app can be available and receive shared data. I was looking at the Xamarin.Essentials.Share plugin but that is just half the story. It is only great for sharing info TO other application not FROM other application. Any help greatly appreciated. Doing an episode on this will be great!

    This demo is not about Xamarin.Forms, it is about Xamarin.Esssentials, which can be used with either Xamarin.iOS or Xamarin.Android, no need to use Xamarin.Forms (which I dont use either).

    Hi James,
    what's the better way to use this API with Prism?
    Do I put a property in the ViewModelBase or leave in the Views code behind?
