Progress Software is launching the latest version of NativeScript, an open source framework on the Telerik platform, enabling developers to use JavaScript to build native mobile apps running on the major mobile systems.

With the release of NativeScript 2.0, developers using Google’s Angular 2 JavaScript framework can now write native mobile applications for iOS and Android. They can reuse existing skills and code from the web and achieving time and cost-efficiencies.

“Angular integration first shipped with our popular Kendo UI library nearly two years ago, and we continue to see high demand for Angular from our community,” says Todd Anglin, chief evangelist and VP technology at Progress.

NativeScript 2.0 enables developers to create native apps, using a platform-native UI to deliver maximum performance, even on older Android devices, while still making it easy to share code between the web and different platforms. They can also reuse skills by writing native apps with JavaScript, using Angular 2 in the NativeScript framework opens the door to sharing code between web and native apps.
