First of all, as the tradition goes, Happy New Year, guys! I wish you a successful 2017! I know this year will be quite exciting following the last one with Microsoft introducing so much new stuff, including the acquisition of Xamarin, making it completely free, and introducing Visual Studio for Mac. Wow!
Following that excitement, I am happy to announce that recently we have released a Beta of UI for Xamarin R1 2017. The official R1 2017 will take place in the week of Jan 16th. But let’s see what the new year brings for UI for Xamarin.
For more information on the Gauge usage, please follow our documentation.
Concerned about the user bandwidth or data plan? With the ZipLibrary you can compress/decompress data on the device and send it/receive it from the server. This comes in handy for a mobile application out on the field with limited connectivity, but still requiring quality content.
In case you want to export the app data in an Excel sheet, we’ve got you covered. The SpreadStreamProcessing API allows you to tell what object should be exported where in the resulting Excel sheet. API for styling the cells of the exported data is also included, so that you can export a customized report.
Get a Trial of the Beta from here and let us know what you think!
We are just a week and something away from the official UI for Xamarin R1 2017 and there will be a lot more throughout the year, so stay tuned!
Update: UI for Xamarin has been released! We also recommend you check out the newly released Telerik Tagit, a cross-platform native mobile Xamarin app. We give you source code and a six-part walkthrough of how it was created. Check out how we implemented the gauge control in that app, right here!
