Xamarin forms : Issue with Deeplinking

2018-01-31 xamarin.forms deep-linking

I implement deep linking to android part of my Xamarin forms project. But when I click the URL, initially it loads a black page with app name on the top, after a short period only it opens my app. I need to avoid this black screen. Also, the app opens in the same window, no new window is started for my app, if I click the URL from WhatsApp, the app opens in the WhatsApp window.

I need a solution for these 2 problems.

Thanks in advance.


In android manifest set android:name like below:


And in Mainactivity add Name like below:

[Activity(Name = "packagename.MainActivity")]
