  • Get text completion with AutoCompleteTextView (Beta)

    In the era of mobile devices, most of the user interactions with the device happen without additional hardware keyboards involved. This is comfortable for mobility purposes. However, the software keyboard is not always your best typing friend. To address the loss of tactile keyboards, most software keyboards offer some means for predictive completion. Often, the application developer would like the application user to choose from a defined set of choices. For example, the choices may be a list of origin airports serviced by an airplane company, or possibly a list of your friends in a social app context. In this case, the AutoCompleteTextView for NativeScript will be your best friend. Let’s dive in a little deeper into the useful features that the control provides.

  • How secure is NativeScript?

    One of the questions we receive from the community is how secure is NativeScript as a framework compared to the native iOS and Android frameworks.
