[Xamarin.Android]: Cleartext HTTP traffic to not permitted

If your Android application gives the following error, when trying to use a HttpClient:

Java.IO.IOException: 'Cleartext HTTP traffic to 192.168.0.10 not permitted'

Set usesClearTraffic property to true in the AndroidManifest.xml:

<application android:label="MobileSolution.Android" 
	     android:theme="@style/MainTheme"
             android:usesCleartextTraffic="true">
		
</application>

The restriction was introduced in Android 8. More explanation: https://koz.io/android-m-and-the-war-on-cleartext-traffic/
