The latest official release of RadControls for Windows Phone (Q3 2013) has just landed and we are really excited about what's in it. It’s been almost a year since we decided that providing you with the latest and greatest tools for cloud application development must be our top priority. Staying true to this commitment, we've included tons of new cloud-related functionality and of course…more. This release introduces support for Windows Azure in the Cloud Data Synchronization component; a brand new cloud developer center app which allows developers to handle all the feedback from their application users and schedule notifications; a new cloud component called CloudCalendar; support for social login (Facebook, Google and LiveID) in the CloudLogin component; and Pinterest-like layout in DataBoundListBox. The Cloud Developer Center is a companion app that provides an easy way to get feedback from your application users and send them notifications.
The Telerik Cloud Data Sync component can now be integrated with any Azure Mobile Service enabling you with a single line of code to store locally and synchronize your data among multiple devices.
The Cloud Calendar component is a composite component that provides three different views: Calendar, Agenda and Appointment. These views resemble the native calendar experience from Windows Phone and provide appointment management options out of the box. The Cloud Login component now supports authentication with popular social accounts: Facebook, Google and LiveID. This means that your application users don’t have to create yet another account but use their existing social profiles to log into your app.
The DataBoundListBox component now enables you to create stunning layouts with its bran new VirtualizationStrategyDefinition called DynamicGridVirtualizationStrategyDefinition.
