    Dear sir,
    Currently i am developing apps just for IOS as our company only allows that. How to use your controls outside Xamarin Forms?

    Btw, when i saw telerik is building controls for Xamarin, I am very excited as it does help us alot.

    Thank you.

    Let me try to clarify this. If you navigate to the UI for Xamarin Product Page and scroll down a bit (just below Key Features) you will see the details within the green stripe -- Xamarin.Forms, Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android with the controls we are currently offering. Xamarin forms is a framework, which allows you to build native apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone with a single C# codebase. We ship chart for Xamarin forms at the moment. On the other hand, for iOS and Android we ship .NET assemblies which wrap our native controls, so that you can use them with Xamarin.

    Still, the bottom line is that you need Xamarin in order to use Telerik UI for Xamarin. Of course, you can use our iOS native suite without Xamarin, but this would not be possible with Visual Studio and you will need an iOS dev environment like XCode.

    Best regards,

    Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.
