    I'm currently evaluating Kendo UI for our new hybrid mobile app. So far everything went fine, but I just can't get my Kendo UI test project build into a standalone app using Phonegap. I just tried Android using this tutorial regarding the integration part of Kendo  UI:

    http://www.kendoui.com/blogs/teamblog/posts/12-02-22/building_your_first_kendo_ui_mobile_phonegap_application.aspx

    This does work (basically), but in the resulting app nothing is really working (links, listviews etc.).

    My question is: is there a more recent tutorial on how to integrate Kendo UI with Phonegap/Cordova? The one above seems outdated to me (i.e. there is no phonegap-*.js in the phonegap download).
    If there is no tutorial that works with Phonegap 2.9., could some one spare a few minutes and tell me how to get the Kendo UI stuff into a freshly created phonegap www structure?

    Btw: I tried the cloud service of the Phonegap builder, which works fine, but is not suitable for us. I need to build it locally. As I mentioned, Phonegap is set up locally and runs fine. I just need help with integrating Kendo UI.

    Thanks a lot in advance,
    Roman

    Hello Roman,

     We will make sure the blog post gets updated. In the mean time I would recommend checking our Icenium product which creates Phonegap projects that use Kendo UI Mobile. You can use a trial version to create a test Kendo UI Mobile project and see what the code and file structure is.

    I have read about Icenium before, but as far as I understand it can build for Android and iOS only? Unfortunately that would not be sufficient for our project. We need to build for Blackberry and WP too.
    PhoneGap does all these platforms, so I was hoping to be able to wrap a Kendo UI app with it without limiting the target platforms through Icenium.

    Hello Roman,

    You are correct that currently Icenium supports iOS and Android only, however the Windows Phone support is already on the roadmap and I am sure that it will soon be added to the platforms supported by Icenium. As for the Blackberry - taking in mind the recent developments around this platform, I cannot tell you for sure if support will be added for this platform. There is already a user voice request, that you can vote up here:

    Thanks for your reply. Nice to hear that Windows support is planned. Since our project lead is now thinking about dropping Blackberry support as a requirement, Icenium would then be sufficient for us.
    We already decided to use Kendo UI, purchased it and are starting development with it now. By the time we will do device specific stuff I'll check back with Icenium, maybe Windows support is already on the way by then.
    Thanks for your help.
