Mindscape releases suite of high performance WinRT controls

Wellington, NZ, February 3, 2013 - Mindscape, a leader in high quality developer tools, have proudly announced the release of Metro Elements, a suite of powerful controls to help Windows 8 developers make compelling Windows Store apps in less time.

The suite includes 30+ customizable WinRT controls for Windows 8 app development, including a very comprehensive charting suite. Metro Element's chart controls can render data in over 15 different ways including line chart, area chart, pie chart, stock charts and stacked charts.

To quickly browse through interactive samples of all 30 + controls, the Sample Explorer can be used right after installation. This sample shows off several options and customizations that can be made to each control and also displays the code used for each sample. The Sample Explorer is built with a simplistic design and is easy to navigate to the control you want to view.

"We believe that the quality bar for touch enabled apps is very high and we needed to ensure that Metro Elements delivered a best of breed experience for developers and end users alike" said Mindscape co-founder, John-Daniel Trask.

Developers can trial the software for free. The free trial has no time limit, so that developers have as much time as they need to try out and evaluate the tools. The trial can be downloaded here.
