PITTSBURGH, PA: GrapeCity, a component solution provider in the Microsoft Visual Studio Partner Ecosystem announces the second edition of Xuni to provide an enhanced developing experience across all mobile platforms.

Xuni is a collection of native, cross-platform mobile controls to deploy the same API across iOS, Android, and the Xamarin Platform using native programming techniques.

Xamarin Platform comes with a C# shared codebase, where developers can use Xamarin tools to write native iOS, Android and Windows apps with built-in user interfaces and share code across multiple platforms.

C# developers can now use Xuni controls in their Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Android applications to build native mobile apps using the tools and language they're familiar with.

Xuni iOS includes iOS controls that are used in native developer tools like Xcode and is written with Objective-C or Swift. Developers can incorporate the charts, grids, and gauges with animations and features to their applications. Xuni iOS controls integrate with universal iOS 7.1 and iOS 8 apps.

Java developers who work with native developer tools like Android Studio and Eclipse can utilize Xuni Android that offers customizable charts, gauges, and grids and material design-based UI controls within the Android IDE of their choice.

ComponentOne FlexGrid control is the standard data grid for .NET developers. The latest Xuni edition also offers a FlexGrid control for native apps. The Xuni CollectionView, a data biding component provides currency, filtering, grouping, and sorting services for data collections and can be used with the new FlexGrid control. 

"What makes Xuni unique and powerful is that it is one control set that is designed to deliver a universal experience across all mobile platforms, our controls are helping to bridge the gap between iOS and Android so developers can more efficiently reach more users, and with Xamarin support the idea of developing once with a single control suite has become a reality," says Greg Lutz, Product Manager, GrapeCity.
