My current app look like this

i would like to make each of the 4 boxes into buttons such that when user click on each of them they will be bought to the respective xaml page

Hi Benjamin, 
Greetings from Syncfusion. 
We have analysed your requirement. You can use any of the following solutions to achieve your requirement. 
·       SfBorder inside the SfButton and add TapGesture for SfBorder for page navigation 
·       Directly use the SfButton for your customization. 
Solution 1: You can enable the touch interactions for SfBorder by using the GestureRecognizers. Please refer the below code. 
Code snippet [XAML]: 
<border:SfBorder > 
        <TapGestureRecognizer Command="{Binding OnBorderTap}" /> 
    .  .  . 
Solution 2: We like to let you know that we have implemented SfButton control by inheriting the SfBorder control. So SfButton has all the properties like SfBorder. So, you can directly use SfButton to achieve your requirement. Please download the sample from the below link. 
Please get back to us for further assistance.
