Telerik platform mobile development
I have been using Telerik Platform for some time now, I was quite happy when using the trial, but since I have taken a $39 monthly developer subscription to create my mobile applications, I have had some great features gone missing 🙁
I understand Telerik needs to make money, that’s why I bought a subscription, but some features are only available for the $149 monthly plan which is just too much for a single developer, the features I really miss:
Package your apps and publish to Public app stores directly from the telerik AppBuilder
Since | don’t own a mac, this was a great feature in my trial version, but it’s not included in the lowest subscription tier, and now I need to use MacInCloud yet another paid service (which is working great by the way) to be able to upload my build to itunes connect. I would rather not need multiple subscriptions to accomplish one task
leaving out the option to send push messages to a segment or single user
I have no idea why I would need the abillity to send push messages to everyone at once, that sounds more like a spam tool to me.
I did find an alternative push service for my app called OneSignal, I’m currently implementing it, and will write a tutorial on it this week.
