    Use Your C# Skills to Build Native iOS, Android and Windows Phone Apps with Telerik UI for Xamarin

    With iOS claiming the majority of the high-end device market and Android winning almost everywhere else as well as Windows Phone continuing to gain developer mindshare steadily at 28% (source Vision Mobile: Developer Economics Q3 2014) it is clear that there isn’t one single winner of the mobile platform war. What this means for mobile developers is that they usually need to build the same apps, with the same set of feature for at least 2 or even 3 mobile platforms. However, learning the language and IDE specifics of each platform is a luxury a few among us can enjoy. As developers in a high velocity business we want to achieve the best results in a cost and time effective way. The launch of the Xamarin technology addressed this issue for the C# developers. With the recent launch of Xamarin.Forms building native iOS, Android and Windows Phones apps from a single, shared C# codebase became a reality. And because we are always looking to make developers more productive we released two weeks ago the first Telerik Chart for Xamarin.Forms. Today UI for Xamarin plugs into the regular DevCraft release cycle adding more components to the suite.

    It’s all about integration or how RadControls for Windows Phone became best buds with Everlive

    November 07, 2013 Share
    As you may have already noticed, a couple of weeks ago Telerik announced its brand new BaaS called Everlive. In short: it’s our own approach to offloading you from thinking about where and how to store your mobile application’s data and simply concentrate on providing the best experience to your users still having a secure and scalable backend. As you may have also noticed, with Q2 2013 we announced a brand new suite of controls: Telerik Cloud Controls for Windows Phone. These controls are designed to combine the power of our already rocking RadControls for Windows Phone suite and the flexibility of Everlive. In other words, we want you to be able to build a connected and really functional apps without concerns about where and how to store data, user profiles; or how to manage push notifications and files.
