Mobile app development is complex. To build apps that reach all users, developers must deal with many different operating systems, SDKs, development tools, team skillsets, screen sizes and form factors. And if that were not enough, there are also several different ways to build mobile apps that development teams must sort through before beginning any new mobile effort.

There are three primary approaches to building mobile apps today: web, hybrid and native. Telerik offers solutions for all approaches. We provide you with more than 400 mobile-optimized UI components to help you create a mobile strategy capable of delivering the right result, regardless of the approach.
