    This might sound completely off the wall here AND I realise the Telerik commitment to the Microsoft platform. Silverlight IS the MS platform to developing "mobile" apps. It may not retain the Silverlight name as we move toward Windows 8 and Metro design but the underlying technology will remain.

    That being said, we're looking to port apps to the iOS and Android platform. Doing this requires quite a lot of re-invention, especially if we want to provide "similar" UI and UX across multiple platforms.

    It would be GREAT to see Telerik diversify in their Silverlight development and create similar excellent controls for the iOS and Android environments.

    The need is huge (particularly for professionally developed controls/extensions/pluggins) and the market is even BIGGER!

    Food for thought!

    Hello Lindsay Miles,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Have you checked our KendoUI controls. They are engineered with the latest HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript standards, it delivers everything needed for client-side. I believe they will be a perfect match for any mobile platform.

    Thanks Nick, those are VERY interesting indeed.

    I still think that there is a need for native iOS custom controls that compile into the app.

    We have graphics functionality that allow the users to draw diagrams and save .png/.jpg files. Web-based apps using the HTML5 controls are excellent and we're certainly looking at as much as we can for web-based needs BUT, the drawing capabilities we need can only be achieved in native apps and not browser based.

    We already achieve the user-drawing functionality ... it is the surrounding controls that we find limited.

    Thus, native user-controls for iOS and Android (similar to your Silverlight controls which we use) that compile into the app(s). would be fantastic. Example - Docking, OutlookBar, Accordion, RibbonBar etc etc.

    If I'm missing something here, please let me know!

    Nick,

    Having done some investigation and I apologise for posting this here BUT, maybe you can advise me...

    If you guys can create a widget using a canvas that will allow a user to export canvas contents to a .png and/or .jpg file locally and/or a specific location on a server, suddenly, native apps become less important and the need to target WP7, W8/Metro, iOS and Android is mitigated (to a large extent).

    Example: display a canvas, load pre-existing image, user draws lines over image, save image and user-input into new bitmap file (somewhere).

    Wrap that into a HTML5 widget...I'm signing up to Kendo right away.

    Hi Lindsay Miles,

    I deeply apologize for the late reply.

    For the time being there is no specific widget that I can offer to you. However, we will be surely looking in that direction for the future releases. Thanks for sharing your idea.

    Is there a plan to add WP7 styles to the Kendo UI Mobile platform? Or will this be something the greater community will have to work on. I see layouts for iOS/Android and some other OS's but no Metro. Obviously, not a huge issue but I am curious if it is on the roadmap for version 1.0 Final.
