Telerik, an end-to-end provider of software application, lifecycle and content management solutions, today announced that several of its customers already have Windows 8 apps, designed using Telerik’s UI Controls for Windows 8, live and in use within the Windows Store.
“It was extremely important to deliver Windows 8 capabilities as early as possible, because we knew our customers would be clamoring to get their apps ready prior to the Windows 8 release,” said Chris Sells, vice president, Tools Division, Telerik. “Because of our focus, we were able to help many customers go live earlier than expected. Our tools have been leveraged by individual developers as well as enterprises creating a variety of business and consumer apps that we’re sure will be very popular. Congratulations to our forward-thinking customers who got in early.”
