rest300x171Connect with popular BaaS providers and cloud services using REST

Integrate cloud based services from Back-end as a Service (BaaS) providers, Kinvey, Parse, and App42 with components for popular BaaS services like notifications, user management, and storage. You get easy access to these common services in the cloud without having to build them yourself or maintain them. Add user authentication to your apps. Use push notifications to engage your users. Access data and object storage in the cloud. The REST Client library, available on all platforms, simplifies the invocation of REST web services by any third party provider, such as, Facebook, eBay, Amazon, Google, etc.

Bind any UI control to other objects or datasets

With LiveBindings, every component is data aware. LiveBindings provide an easy way to bind user interface controls to object properties or dataset fields. A visual design surface makes connecting data and UI elements as simple as drawing a line between component properties. You'll find that LiveBindings make developing database connected, UI rich applications easier, more intuitive and more enjoyable than ever before.
