Are you interested in mobile development? Of course you are! Mobile development is the biggest change to the way we build, test and deliver software since web apps stormed on the scene in the 1990s. At Telerik, we've been aggressively building the tools and services you need to successfully make the mobile transition. From Test Studio for iOS to Icenium to our new EQATEC Analytics, we're applying a decade of developer productivity expertise to making the best tools for mobile developers.
This month has been especially big for our mobile tools, too. First, we proudly shipped support across the Telerik portfolio for Apple's latest iOS 7. In Kendo UI there is brand new support for iOS 7 gestures, as well as a fresh, new iOS 7 theme. Test Studio for iOS has been updated to support effortless test recording in iOS 7. Icenium Everlive is now shipping a native iOS SDK, ready for iOS 7, naturally. And, Sitefinity flexes to deliver on any mobile CMS strategy and continues to invest, so going forward, your data can always leverage the latest mobile technologies.
Meanwhile, Icenium, Telerik's cloud-based solution for simplifying cross-platform mobile development, just took a major step forward for fans of Visual Studio. With the latest Icenium release, you can now build and debug cross-platform mobile apps directly from Visual Studio! That's right. You'll get the full power of Icenium in your favorite IDE. You can even use your own source control provider, such as TFS or SVN. It has never been easier to build mobile apps for iOS and Android using Visual Studio.
