.NET developers finally get their HTML5 Mobile Framework

The new mobile framework we released today extends to Enterprise Mobility the revolution that Visual WebGui brought to Enterprise RIA Applications. Just like Visual WebGui for Web, the new Enterprise Mobile framework also provides a classic .NET development paradigm within Visual Studio. This allows leveraging existing development skillset for building HTML5 mobile applications and extending enterprise IT to the post PC era.

The new framework is optimized for enterprise mobility and supports the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) trend. It produces totally secured cross platform and cross device HTML5 applications that doesn't bring or hold any data on the device (the entire logic and data stays behind the Firewall) and doesn’t require strong local computing resources. It also provides a native mobile user experience such as gestures. On the roadmap are utilization of local device resources via PhoneGap (open source) integration and Citrix receiver, along with Form Factor and Device awareness.

The current preview version provides limited functionality and capabilities and includes about 14 controls which were adapted for mobile requirements in terms of performance and user experience. Currently, the framework supports iOS and Android devices or Chrome and Safari and offers only one out-of-the-box theme - iOS like, but it is possible to customize it or create other themes as well. Upcoming versions will offer more capabilities including an HTML5 off-line feature that will ensure application availability even when there is no internet/network connectivity. We encourage you to download and "play" around with this version and will deeply appreciate your feedback. There is also a live HTML5 mobile mail application that was developed with the framework and available for browsing from mobile devices via this url:

The preview is free and can be downloaded here:

Gravatar The .NET Framework supports building and running the next generation of applications and XML Web services. HTML5 improves interoperability and reduces development costs by making precise rules on how to handle all HTML elements, and how to recover from errors. 3/13/2012 6:41 AM | Mobile Application Development

Gravatar I was very disappointed with the mobile framework release. I found KendoUI, Jquery Mobile to be much more robust and mature. This release is at best a proof of concept. 5/7/2012 2:13 PM | Tony Jacobs

Gravatar That is an excellent framework and I will try to use it to build new phone apps. 5/8/2012 1:11 AM | immobilien mallorca

Gravatar The information in your post about .NET is more interesting. and this info is more useful for the developers to develop the .Net Application. Thanks for share this valuable info. 5/22/2012 12:44 AM | Willie McKinney

Gravatar I want to remind you it was only a preview version. The beta is expected in about a month and will provide much more functionality and capability including offline mode (for .NET programmers and not JS) and the ability to develop UI versions of the same system for web and mobile - in the same designer and using the same code base. 5/22/2012 1:24 AM | webgui
