Telerik Icenium first impression

An evolution of mobile development trends will demand cross development platform.
There are heaps of new technology out there which make this idea close to reality.
Besides PhoneGap, Titanium, Monotouch, Today I will share my first impression with Telerik Icenium.

What is Icenium ?
A Platform for Hybrid Mobile Development which includes IDE, Simulator, Debugging Tools and Publishing.

  • Icenium Graphite - Windows IDE
  • Icenium Mist - Cloud IDE
  • Visual Studio Extension

First Impression
This new platform sound promising and it definitely make development easier and cheaper to maintain.
However there are some minor limitation which may not effect your decision to start using Icenium such as Icenium Mist which is their cloud IDE is still buggy.
This is nice to have gimmick but mostly developer will prefer to work on their own local IDE. It asked me to wait for compiling the code which should be expected to be quicker overtime.

Sample code
Here are my sample code if you want to have a quick look

I love their idea to quick deploy to IOS device.
They use QR Code to wrap the link and will deploy into icenium ion container.
