    When I developed a previous hybrid app not using the telerik platform (with jQuery Mobile) I built the app like a website that would run in any html 5 complaint browser.  Then to create the hybrid cordova app I added the cordova js, ondeviceready, and app initialization.

    The idea was I had a mobile friendly site with all except device dependent features, and if you installed the app you had the same experience but with the added ability to, say, take photos and geo-locate.  

    Is it possible to do this with hybrid apps created in app builder? 

    Obviously any reference to the cordova,js device files would need o be removed, but are the kendo js files deeply intertwined with the device or can it be easily ported over to a standard html5/css3 website?

    Hi Kenneth,

    Kendo Hybrid UI (previously Kendo UI Mobile) is a JavaScript library that doesn't have any Cordova hooks and can work inside a web app without issues. The library was actually targeted initially at mobile web sites and then got adopted as a main UI library in AppBuilder.

    You can take a look at the demo page that runs in the browser as a standalone web app:

    Also, this tutorial and its source code show how to build a Kendo UI Mobile application that is web-based:
