Check out this webinar video of the new DevExpress ASP.NET mobile and desktop demos:
Take a Tour 12.1: Right Platform. Right Design. Right Decision.
New Demos In the latest v12.1 release, our ASP.NET team worked hard to produce two great new demos that leverage the new iOS theme. The new demos show you what's possible for mobile iPad devices when using DevExpress ASP.NET. Money Monkey      The ASP.NET team and I had some fun with the Money Monkey demo because
we only had 2 weeks before the release to create it! The goal was to create one Visual Studio solution that targets both desktop-web browsers (Chrome, IE, Firefox, etc.) and mobile iPad's Safari browser. So if you're on a native iPad device, then it will automatically show you the mobile version of the site. And I'm happy to say that this demo does that exceptionally well. Look for the full source code of this demo in a next minor release of DXperience v12.1. Touch Board This slick little demo shows you can make a nice...(Read whole news on source site)
