That's right, even on iOS!

How to use

Clone the repository and open include the src projects in your Xamarin.Forms and Platform projects.

Special note for iOS: Make sure to call FloatingActionButtonRenderer.InitRenderer(); in your AppDelegate.cs in order to avoid linking it out.

Then you can include it in your XAML or call it from C# (See the example projects for a demo):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<ContentPage xmlns=""
    <StackLayout Margin="32">
        <Label Text="This is a Floating Action Button!" 
        <controls:FloatingActionButton x:Name="FAB" HorizontalOptions="CenterAndExpand" WidthRequest="50" HeightRequest="50"  VerticalOptions="CenterAndExpand" Image="ic_add_white.png" ButtonColor="#03A9F4" Clicked="Button_Clicked"/>
