Creating Rich Tablet UIs
Today’s Kendo UI release adds a complete set of controls and widgets for creating rich iPad user interfaces. According to IDC, more than 107 million tablets will ship this year, with nearly 2/3 of those expected to be iPads. By adding iPad-specific widgets to Kendo UI Mobile, the company provides developers with a streamlined way to build native-like apps leveraging HTML5 for the market’s #1 tablet.
HTML5 is quickly becoming the dominant cross-platform runtime, with ABI Research forecasting the installed base for mobile devices with HTML5 to grow from approximately 500 million in 2011, to more than 2.1 billion in 2016. Gartner further forecasts that worldwide tablet sales will grow by 98% in 2012 to 119 million units.
Maximizing Developer Productivity while Supporting Platform Choice
Further Kendo UI Framework Enhancements
In addition to the new iPad widgets and server wrappers, there are updates across the entire Kendo UI framework. These include new and improved widgets and charts in Kendo UI Web and DataViz, enabling the presentation of rich, touch-aware visual information on any browser and any device. Additional enhancements include:
- Kendo UI Mobile: Popover and Split View controls, as well as Action Sheet and Modal View widgets
- Kendo UI DataViz: New Donut (or torus) and Bubble chart types, as well as date axis support and additional arrow types for the Radial Gauge
- Kendo UI Web: Combined DateTimePicker widget, column reordering and resizing on the Grid, and support for hierarchical and relational data in the DataSource
Kendo UI has been building rapid momentum in the market. It was one of only 13 vendors hand-selected by Google to showcase the Chrome platform at the recent Google I/O conference. Kendo UI also just won a trio of accolades from the 2012 Code Project, which is comprised of a 3.8 million developer community that awarded Kendo UI with two gold medals for best “HTML5 Tools” and best “Frameworks and Mobile Development”.
