Content Collector - 8 - Building a Geolocator service for Xamarin.Forms

In this session we install a few plugins for our Xamarin.Forms app, and build out a cross platform service to let us grab the devices current location, and to reverse geocode that location to an address string. Sadly we run into a conflict with the UWP project and the Xamarin.Forms.Map component towards the end.


This is part of a series, building a Content Collector mobile application using Xamarin.Forms and a Azure Mobile App Service, with an accompanying Angular single page applicatoin to view the data collected via the cross platform mobile application.
