10 Awesome Designs with Xamarin Forms UI - Part 2

In this blog you will learn designs with Xamarin Forms UI. Convert inline item template to a reusable XAML User Control.

We are back with second installment of our "10 Awesome designs with Xamarin Forms UI - Part 1". Today's theme is called Foody & it basically is a list of images with text embedded on top of it.

I wanted to do an app with images those have longer widths than height in a list for long, the design inspiration I got from the Apple's recently released Music app.

The ViewCell used in Item template of the list is inline but you could also create a new XAML page of type ViewCell with Binding properties to achieve the same result. I've left a small sample in the code doing just that. You can easily convert the inline item template to a reusable XAML User Control & as usual I am leaving it as a home work for you guys to complete.

Here is how the new design looks:


& as usual the code is here.
