As I dig deeper into gestures, I think the biggest area to start with would be pinch to zoom with scrolling. This is not too bad to figure out on iOS and UWP but Android on the other hand is a nightmare. I envision a control (possibly based on ScrollView) that would respond to pinching and send the contents of itself a value for how large the content has been zoomed to. A simple example is an image. But allowing any View to sit inside of this control would be amazing.

Thanks, Brian. Actually, we do not have everything needed for a production-ready framework in place.  We will keep an eye on this request and we will evaluate it when planning future releases.

There a big holes in the Xamarin Forms framework here - touch with location, swipe, long tap, etc. Your controls seem to already have this figured out. Adding this as a public API surface would add a lot of value to your Xamarin offering. Sure there's MR Gestures but it has issues (especially on UWP) and the licensing model is inconvenient at best..
