You're talking about a control similar to a UICollectionView on iOS?

If so, this is a hard task to do nicely, as you'll need to leverage the
correct controls on the underlying native platforms controls like
UICollectionView and it's also a must have that you use cell recycling.
It's most definately a control that should be part of the Xamarin.Forms
Platform, I'd hope that it would be scheduled for development already if
not already started.

If the XF team give the go ahead for you to work on it, I would happily
help with the implementation.

Actually, would it even be an idea to have this control as a separate nuget
like the CarouselView?
