Website Upgrade – Why SciChart, Testimonials, Showcase and More

This includes the new styled menu, as well as Why SciChart and Showcase pages. Have a look if you haven’t already! We hope you like what you see!

New SciChart homepage is looking slick!

SciChart UWP BETA Coming Soon

SciChart for Universal Windows Platform!

Yuriy on our team has managed to create a prototype for SciChart on UWP. Can you believe it! This has been hard work due to the maturity of the UWP API. We have faced problems such as lack of MarkupExtension, no support for Bindings in styles, no dependency property inheritance, no RelativeSource FindAncestor binding etc… However, through hard work and sheer determination he has managed to get a chart rendering with several of our series types in Universal Windows Platform. We hope to be releasing a BETA for this shortly along with the release of SciChart WPF v5.

SciChart iOS/Android v2.1 Coming Soon

SciChart iOS Android Pie Chart Donut Chart

SciChart iOS v2.1 will feature Pie and Donut Charts

  • Pie Charts
  • Donut Charts
  • Animation functions on chart load, or on data-point added

After the release of SciChart iOS/Android v2.1 we aim to be focussing on our getting-started guides, documentation and more as per your feedback from our features survey.

We would welcome your continued feedback on what you would like added to the iOS & Android charts.

Q4 2017 and Beyond

What else are we working on? As well as projects for the immediate future, this is our roadmap for the rest of 2017 and beyond.

 

SciChart iOS/Android Documentation, Getting-Started Guides

We’re continually trying to improve our SciChart iOS & Android documentation to make it easy to use and get started, and maintain the great reputation we have from SciChart WPF into our new products.

If you would like to feed back on what documentation topics you want added to SciChart iOS & Android, please contact us.

 

SciChart iOS/Android Examples and Showcase Appstore Publication

We are also planning to publish the SciChart iOS/Android Examples to the AppStore as well as the SciChart iOS/Android Showcase. The showcase features some great demos, including the Spectrum Analyzer demo, the ECG demo and now a new Trading App demo. These are available currently from our Github repositories: https://github.com/abtsoftware/SciChart.iOS.Examples and https://github.com/abtsoftware/SciChart.Android.Examples

SciChart iOS/Android 3D Chart Prototype

It is very early days but we are working to include our 3D engine into SciChart iOS/Android to allow 3D Charts on these platforms. We hope to release this in 2018.

 

SciChart iOS/Android ReactNative and NativeScript Support

SciChart iOS Android NativeScript ReactNative Charts

SciChart iOS & Android is compatible with NativeScript and soon ReactNative

Super popular ReactNative and NativeScript frameworks allow javascript or TypeScript software development on the iOS & Android platforms, but with near native performance. We are working on prototypes to demonstrate how to include our super-fast native iOS & Android charts.

We already have a very early prototype for using SciChart with NativeScript on our Github repository:  https://github.com/ABTSoftware/SciChart.NativeScript.examples/tree/NewCharts. This shows a simple line chart (nothing more) and shows you how to use SciChart iOS + Android with this popular framework. More to follow!
