Cheat Sheet For Xamarin Form Controls

Xamarin released a great cheat sheet over a year ago if you were going from Android to iOS to Windows Phone. It is great but doesn’t help if you are using Xamarin Forms because they have an entire different set of terminology for their controls. While it doesn’t take long to memorize them, for new starters here is a quick cheat sheet for Xamarin Forms.
