    Swift Support and Chart Improvements in UI for iOS Q3 2014

    The last few months were pretty exciting times for the iOS developer.

With the recent launch of Xamarin.Forms building native iOS, Android and Windows Phones apps from a single, shared C# codebase became a reality. And because we are always looking to make developers more productive we released two weeks ago the first Telerik Chart for Xamarin.Forms.
