Hi,

I want to create an application that will work on browsers, tablets and smartphones. How do I start? is there anything special that I have to take into consideration from the beginning? I'm asking because I already created a browser application  infrastructure using the templateLoader example that I found in one of your tutorials, and I'm also working with your router and I'm not sure that I'm in the right direction...It looks good on browser but that are the things that I have to think about if I want my app to work on other devices as well?

Hello Meir,

For true cross-platform development on any screens and devices, consider utilizing our Telerik Platform. It incorporates IDE (AppBuilder), backend services for easy data and user management, testing solution and analytics module for collecting usage data.

Review the information and references from the page I linked above for more details.

Best regards,

Hi,

I understood that the kendo ui complete solution will give me what I'm looking for. I don't want to be bounded to any kind of IDE.
Just looking for a cross protform UI/CSS solution.

I understand, Meir. In this case Kendo UI Complete should be the bundle which can serve the purpose you are after.

Thanks. I'm already evaluating the kendo ui complete. Can you please refer to the questions that I asked in the original post? I am already working with the kendo ui complete, i added the template loader and i'm working with the router. I'm not sure how to start with the cross-platform development.

Hello again Meir,

For a mobile version of your application, built on top of the infrastructure you configure for this purpose along with the router usage, you can use Kendo UI Mobile with its adaptive rendering depending on the mobile platform.

For the desktop version, reusing the infrastructure, utilize Kendo UI Web.

In both versions you can also make use of Kendo UI DataViz.

I hope these pointers are helpful.

Hi, sorry but it still doesn't answer my question. I'll try to better explain myself.

I need to write a big complicated scalable web application and I would like to do that using kendo ui.

I need this application to work on desktops and on mobile phones.

The question is - do I have to write 2 totally different applications? one for desktop and one for smartphones? or can I, using kendo ui, write only 1 application that will work on all devices, with some minor css changes?

Per my previous explanation, you need to built the desktop version of your web application using Kendo UI Web, and the mobile version of it (adaptable to mobile platforms and devices) using Kendo UI Mobile. In both versions you can also make use of Kendo UI DataViz, if necessary.

This means you'll have one version for desktop and one for mobile, which can reuse your underlying code logic/infrastructure, if possible. I hope this clarification is helpful, Meir.
