Telerik UI for Windows Universal Overview

Key Features

Build Apps Running on Windows 8.1 Faster

UI for Windows Universal is an advanced and polished UI toolset making development with Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 more productive. With this platform developers target tablets and phones with separate projects and one that is shared, which gives them control over how to maximize shared code. Universal apps in Visual Studio 2013 support only Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1.


Can I Build Windows 10 Apps with This Product?

The latest Microsoft platform – Universal Windows Platform (UWP) empowers developers to reach any Windows 10 device by building a single application. While Windows 8.1 requires different project for each device and an additional shared project, Windows 10 allows running the same compiled code on different Windows 10 device types. If you are interested in UI controls for building Windows 10 apps, which take full advantage of all the platform’s benefits, check out the new UI for Universal Windows Platform.

Rich Functionality and Delightful UI

Controls such as ListView and SideDrawer help you create the backbone of your application. With Charts and Gauges you can visualize complex data in stunning interactive graphics. Using the suite you can easily create mobile forms and cover many more mobile scenarios. All controls feature polished UI for delightful user experience.


Matches the Xamarin, iOS and Android UI

Telerik UI for Windows Universal has a very similar feature set with UI for Xamarin, UI for Android and UI for iOS so that no matter which combination of platforms and approaches you chose for mobile development, you can deliver consistent and delightful experience across platforms and devices.

Designed for Touch

The controls are specifically designed for the Window 8.1 and Windows Phone touch environment, enabling every single gesture and interaction with the touch screen. At the same time, Telerik controls for Windows 8.1 are keyboard sensitive when a keyboard or pen is available.

Unmatched Performance

The controls use advanced UI virtualization to ensure exceptional app performance. The flagship ListView component is fast and fluid, capable to process hundreds of thousands of records, even on low-end Windows devices. The Map control leverages Direct2D rendering to produce ultimate performance. Your app can render thousands of shapes even on slower devices without compromising the rich user experience.
