As for getting started on MAC OS, you will need to download from your Telerik account an archive (a simple ZIP file) containing all binaries. It is always a good idea to download our latest official release. Right now the latest available archive is called Telerik_UI_for_Xamarin_2016_2_614_1_Trial.zip Once you download it you will need to manually reference all the binaries in your project.
As for your last post, it seems that you have referenced the NuGet package in your project. If the Telerik binaries are placed in a folder named packages it is most likely that the Package Manager placed them there. Which is direct result of installing the NuGet packages in your project.
However, I do not understand what exactly is going wrong on your side. What exactly you have in mind when you say:"I still cant get them to work"? Is there any error reported by the IDE? Please share with us additional information regarding your particular setup.

Thanks for the response.
It looks like re-downloading the .nuget file and pointing the package manager to the download location did it. I was finally able to find the "Telerik UI for Xamarin Trial" in the package manager. Maybe the download was just corrupted? I'm not sure.
I THINK the issue was mainly with the .nuget trial package never appearing in the package manager to begin with, so something didn't install properly, even with the file location being manually being referenced in the package manager.
For reference, I've attached the errors that I had when setting it up. The first attachment is the initial error I had with the system. The next shows that the files were "referenced" (but not available? not sure, still figuring this out). The last error was showing that the Telerik package wouldn't show up at all in the package manager. The final attachment is the screenshot of the package finally showing up in the package manager this morning. (I was able to just click it and add it, which resolved the errors)
At this point, I'm not sure if it was something to do with Telerik, or Xamarin, but either way, the issue is resolved.
The other two I am working with (on windows) already are enjoying it, so depending on how the rest of the trial goes, we may look into getting a full license. Not to mention fast support and a quick response is appreciated.
