It's generally fantastic to work with. Of course, we create custom styles, so if anyone wants to use a component that wasn't styled yet, that requires a one-time effort by someone, but that's a problem on our side. The documentation is generally very self-explanatory and I rarely get calls with questions concerning the (API) documentation of the components. It is well suited in general for larger businesses that wants to quickly write software without having to worry about having to write all the components. For a smaller business, however, or even individual users, it would be quite expensive (however I don't really know the pricing structures so I might be wrong here too!).

Improve performance while the app is in production. The init app development in planning, the testing stage is not an ideal scenario to use KDC yet.
It takes effort to include a new component library into existing software, especially in our case where we have 5 large applications that are written and maintained by about 100 developers. So changing such a core thing comes with a lot of effort. The other reason we will very likely renew our use of Syncfusion Essential Studio Enterprise Edition is that it works really well and has helped us to speed up the development process.

We evaluated variety of platforms like
, PhoneGap. When we were initially evaluating
, it was not Microsoft and so the releases and features were not very streamlined. Also licensing was a issue with that.
was a very attractive cross mobile platform but was expensive. Just for handful of developers price was high. Ours is big enterprise so licensing costs became huge. PhoneGap is based out of open source Apache Cordova project and is completely free to use, which goes some way to explain its popularity. The enterprise version boasts marketing features via Adobe’s Marketing Cloud, so when it launches it will probably be monetized. Comparing with the features platform has to offer and the price tag attached to it, we narrowed down to using Kony.

I'm constantly utilizing Kony since it's a robust tool capable of publishing. It also shares prototype creations of apps in a highly intuitive and customizable environment. It provides a preview of apps in real-time. Collaboration is seamless. Important functionality includes smartphone features (without any written code involved) and accessibility to a browser, maps, and SMS. Trying to understand the user manual can be challenging since there are way too many features available. All of them aren't really necessary for beginners. And they've yet to offer them in a "phased" approach. Read full review
