Syncfusion, Inc., a leading provider of components for Windows development, today announced the release of Essential Studio 2012 Volume 1. This release offers developers many new ASP.NET MVC controls, targeting mobile devices, called Mobile MVC. These controls include a highly anticipated cross-platform grid, which can be used for mobile enterprise applications and can support interactive features normally only found on desktops.

This release expands the current mobile offering to more than 19 ASP.NET MVC controls targeted for development on iOS, Android, and Symbian. More than 52,000 hours of development by Syncfusion developers went into creating these new controls to strengthen the already robust Essential Studio offering.

Since 2008, Syncfusion has consistently released four increasingly refined component packages every year and is the only component vendor on the market to do so. “Essential Studio 2012 Volume 1 is a major update to our package of mobile controls,” said Daniel Jebaraj, vice president of Syncfusion. “Our customers will now be able to build standards-based, future-proof mobile applications that share a substantial amount of code with their current business applications.” Jebaraj went on to say, “Gartner predicts that by 2015 mobile application development projects targeting smartphones and tablets will outnumber native PC projects by a ratio of 4 to 1. Our mobile solution helps developers leverage their current assets and knowledge of development, providing a world-class mobile application experience.”

In addition to cutting-edge ASP.NET MVC controls, this release also provides the following:
• A fully client-side RDL reporting engine added to the Essential Studio Reporting Edition.
• Bing Maps integration for Silverlight and WPF.
• Gantt control enhancements.
