Earlier this year, at the end of March, we published the video Intro to SciChart for Android: High Performance Android Charts!, announcing that we’d started working on a brand new product – SciChart for Android. It presented some major features like different chart types, legends, chart interactions and styling and theming. Also we promised that our Android Charts will become the world’s fastest charting library for this mobile platform.
Since that time, a lot of our customers have been anticipating the release of the product. Finally, a couple of weeks ago, we announced the forthcoming release of SciChart for Android in the press-release for SciChart WPF v4.0.6.
Today, we are proud to present to you the result of over a year of fruitful research and development, SciChart Android v.1.0! We hope that it will be a great addition to the SciChart product family, alongside with SciChart for iOS v.1.0, keeping an already proven reputation of SciChart as a feature-rich, fast and reliable chart control – the world’s best charting library!
