    Customer App in the Spotlight

    The developer of My Stocks Portfolio & Widget app listened carefully to his users’ feedback and aimed for simplicity and great user experience. A few months after its release on Google play the app has a 4.4 stars rating and more than 120 users’ reviews. The developer chose UI for Android because he needed interactive charts with features such as: pinch-zoom, pan and trackball support. “By using the Telerik native solutions, I was able to integrate the charting controls which met my business requirements and complete the feature quickly, allowing me to focus on adding other functionalities to the app,” said Mike Liu, creator of the app.
