    Hi

    Received an email today detailing the advantages of KUI mobile and its ability to adapt to the OS for styling etc..
    I agree with this, however, the shortcoming is lack of full control set. For example, a slider or date picker to name a few.

    If a fuller control set was available, then it would be a no brainier to use KUI mobile for all mobile projects.
    Just an opinion of how i have found it to date.

    Hi Jason,

    If you own a Kendo UI license you can include Kendo UI Web in your app and use any of the Kendo UI widgets you miss from the Mobile edition. They would work in your app as Kendo UI Mobile only differs from Kendo UI in that it is designed to work on small screens with touch input, rather than large screens with a more precise pointer input. So keep in mind some of them might not feel quite right on a small mobile device, simply because they weren't designed with this form-factor in mind. You can download the full Kendo UI offering from the http://www.kendoui.com/ web site.

    In general, it is best to post any Kendo related feedback on the Kendo feedback portal.

    Hi Steve

    My feedback is squarely aimed at Kendo UI mobile, not Kendo UI. 
    I am not using Kendo UI, but Kendo UI mobile, specifically to target small devices and to be adaptive to the type of device it is running on. So I do feel the feedback is in the right section. 

    Specifically, my feedback is very targeted to Kendo UI mobile. This means I do not have a license for Kendo UI.
    In this case, it would be fantastic, if some of the widgets that were in the big brother of Kendo UI, were in fact in its mobile counterpart.  

    </feedback>

    Thanks
    Jason

    Hello Jason,

    There is no need to have a Kendo license in order to post any kind of feedback on their portal. While we have a Kendo Mobile project template in Icenium, the team responsible for the development of Kendo UI does not track feedback posted in our portal, so thus - my suggestion to post to a place where your feedback would be read and look into.

    Hi Steve

    The last part of your email is key. It was unclear (at-least to me) the separation of concerns from KUI Mobile and ICENIUM. I guess as I received an email today , ICENIUM branded, detailing KUI mobile, I thought that you guys would have influence over it, or would take feedback. 

    Thanks for clearing that up. I will echo the feedback in the appropriate channel.


    Thanks
    Jason
