When you develop mobile applications you should always be alert on the performance and always optimize. In this blog post I will walk you through a very effective pattern that describes optimizing the loading time of an application when using Angular. Meet "Angular Lazy Loading".
Just yesterday Facebook announced the release of their open source native library called "Keyframes” . It is a library that is able to export and playback Adobe After Effects animations.
Hold tight - this is our biggest release ever. A lot of new features and polish were done in the last 2 months!
With 360+ plugins for NativeScript it is clear that the community is now producing much more code than the core team. This is a huge milestone for every open source project. Thank you everyone for all the contributions and plugin work. Below you will see some major highlights of the core framework that were done by the community.
Time for our holiday app contest!
So your company already have one or more first class native mobile applications and is struggling to keep with all the changes and support they require to keep them in top condition? Maybe you have a larger team of web developers that you will be happy to work on your mobile apps?
This is a very compelling story for everyone that want to faster create first class mobile applications.

Having two native versions of a mobile app causes just too much problems. You need to have often different people (or even teams!) that implement and support the apps. Syncing the feature set, need to write the app twice and paying to the developers for this is an unneeded overhead these days.
NativeScript 2.4 comes with workers support allowing you to execute CPU intensive task on a background thread without blocking the UI thread.
Watch the opening keynote from NativeScript Developer Day 2016 held in Boston, MA.
At the end of September we hosted the first NativeScript Developer Day in Boston, MA. I’m sure everyone who attended left with a lot of positive vibes and enthusiasm about what can be done with NativeScript.
For those of you who could not manage to come, we hope to see you next time!
Progress participated in the HackMIT 2016 hackathon where teams competed to build the best apps. Many teams used NativeScript for the first time during the competition.
