    Hi There

    We are building a business mobile app for a healthcare industry using Icenium + Kendo UI. Which is the best Framework to follow.?


    Another important issue is Webservices. Which webservices will be best suited? REST/WCF/Cashed Rest/SerivceStack rest etc?

    Any direction and examples will be of great help.


    Thank you
    Xyler

    Hi Xyler,

    Kendo UI is an UI framework, while Icenium is an IDE and cloud service that allows you to build your app created with HTML, JS and CSS for Android and iOS platforms. We recommend going through the following blog post: What is Icenium Really?

    Due to the nature of mobile devices and jQuery ajax calls that you would use, it would be best to use REST service.

    Thank you Steve. 
    Which is the better Application Pattern/Architecture to follow?

    Do you recommend ServiceStack cashed rest services?

    Thank you

    Hi Xyler,

    In general, the most common approach is exposing your data via a service and consume this JSON/JSONP service from Icenium project by jQuery ajax methods. Check this out for quick introduction and jQuery's ajax documentation
