    I have read several tutorials and have a few basic questions regarding mobile development and Kendo.
    1.  I am building mobile apps with MVC 4 and VS 2012.  Do I only need to use Kendo Mobile UI or do I also use Kendo UI Complete for ASP.Net MVC?  What is the difference?
    2.  I also want to use OpenAccess ORM, but do not understand where this integrates with Kendo UI Mobile (is there any good samples)?
    3. This will be hosted via Azure websites, is there any gotchas before I moved forward?

    Thanks for the help, I must admit it is not very clear which toolset to use at this point.

    Hello Jason,

    Regarding your questions:
    1. Kendo UI Complete for ASP.NET MVC includes Kendo UI Complete (Web + DataViz + Mobile JavaScript libraries). At present Kendo UI Mobile does not have MVC wrappers like Kendo UI Web and DataViz, but we have plans to release them in Q2 2013 which is scheduled for second half of July.

      The difference between Kendo UI Web for ASP.NET MVC and Kendo Mobile is that the second one targets specifically mobile devices and provides automatically adapting UI according to the mobile OS.

      For more information please read the FAQ sections:

    2. It is possible to use Kendo with OpenAccess ORM, however you would have to write Kendo DataSource configuration in JavaScript (Kendo Mobile does not have MVC wrappers, see #1).

      For more information I suggest you to check this tutorial:

      And this sample project:

    3. I am afraid that this question is not directly related to functionality or features that Kendo UI offers. Moreover there is no way for us to predict what kind of issues you may face with. 

      While searching Google, I found this article which might be useful to you:

      In case you experience with any problems while integrating OpenAccess ORM and SQL Azure please contact the corresponding support teams. Thank you in advance for the understanding.
