I am writing my first app for the Windows 8 store and it turns out the standard set of UI controls in Visual Studio is lacking a few things. Among the more obvious are a date and time picker which are staples in many apps. Thank goodness for Telerik UI! Their pickers look professional and like they were built native to the Win 8 platform. I also love the gauges which are a flashy way of showing progress or status without making the user read data manually. I look forward to being able to use more Telerik components now that I know the quality I can expect from Telerik.
