Telerik Toolkit Enhances Tablet App Development Around Windows 8

By Tony Rizzo — June 06, 2012

Telerik announced it will be conducting an exclusive preview of its RadControls for Metro toolset to the attendees of Microsoft's TechEd, June 11-14 in Orlando, FL this week.

The forthcoming toolset from Telerik, an end-to-end provider of software application lifecycle and content management solutions, will provide key functionality on top of Windows 8 SDK. Maintaining its track record of being the first company out-of-the-gate to arm developers with critical tools for Silverlight, Windows Phone and now Windows 8 platform, Telerik is lowering the barrier for developers by providing a way for them to fully evaluate and assess the functionality of the Windows 8 product platform. Target customers include HTML and XAML developers who are building either enterprise or consumer apps for tablets or large screens.

To gain early access to Telerik's RadControls for Metro preview version, interested developers can subscribe to the company's Windows 8 Dev Club. RadControls for Metro Beta will open in the summer.

"We're delighted to be the first again to equip developers with a powerful toolset that will help them to be super productive with Metro. Telerik's RadControls for Metro provides an invaluable jumpstart and path for enterprise-focused developers to fully explore all the options that the Windows 8 platform can offer," stated Chris Sells, Vice President of Telerik's Developer Tools division.

Telerik's RadControls for Metro Toolset

Telerik has leveraged its extensive expertise in XAML, HTML/JavaScript and Windows Phone technologies to develop a powerful suite that was designed to deliver an intuitive and engaging experience to users of tablets and large screens. Telerik's RadControls for Metro toolset complements core features of the platform that will enable developers to rapidly create rich data visualization and slick interactivity.

The forthcoming toolset will appeal to enterprise developers in its ability to extend UX design controls quickly and cost-effectively while applying established best practices. Consumer app focused developers seeking to build high quality, must-have functionality for rapid time-to-market and monetization will welcome the toolset's key touch-centric UI, rich data browsing, and deep integration with other apps and data, while supporting user requirements for sharing on social networks.
