Saving Entries into an XML Library

We are converting a lot of our Infopath forms into PowerApps because we need additional features in our forms and because we are trying to move away from Infopath. A lot of the ways that we've stored information with Infopath is in XML Libraries. Is there an easy way for PowerApps to read and write these XML files, similar to the way that PowerApps handles SharePoint Lists? Or is this impossible at the moment and needs to be added as a feature in the future?

 

If any one else has come across an issue similar to this, how did you guys handle the conversion?

Re: Saving Entries into an XML Library

The official document for infopath migration is here:

Transform your InfoPath form to PowerApps

 

Currently XML file format is not supported, the available data source/Connectors that currently could work with PowerApps is as below:

A possible workaround that could get the XML data is through Microsoft Flow, then convert the XML into other data source, or send it back to PowerApps directly through Microsoft Flow:

Parse XML using Microsoft Flow
