Improve Xamarin Forms App UX by Data Caching

When developing a mobile app persisting data is important, why? Because a mobile app is not a web app, it shouldn’t depend on having a reliable internet connection 100% of the time. For example, when you open a mobile app to see the list of transactions if you don’t have internet you will only see an empty screen with “There is no internet connection error” message. Won’t it be a better user experience if you could see the latest data cached?

One of the topics that I find a bit contentious amongst app developers is how navigation is handled, specifically when it comes to MVVM. Should navigation be done in the code behind of the page? or in the ViewModel? and should navigation be based on a path/URL or based on what ViewModel you want to go to.
