Why is UI for Android Being Retired?
Taking this decision was not easy and multiple factors were taken into consideration. As times are changing so are mobile development trends. Native mobile application development has become the preferred method for creating mobile apps for iOS or Android, and existing cross-platform frameworks can hardly compete. We have always stood for developer productivity and we believe the road to productivity is paved by skill reuse and targeting multiple platforms with a single code base to deliver truly native applications.
We are focusing on products in our portfolio which enhance your productivity by working with the most popular and rising development platforms. In that way, we’ll continue to provide the best UI and productivity tools to help developers keep pace with the latest trends and technologies.
What Does This Mean to Me as a Customer?
Effective immediately there will be no new features or product updates, but the accompanying Documentation resources will remain available. We understand this might be an inconvenience to you and strongly advice you to try Telerik UI for Xamarin and continue building cross-platform mobile applications.
