A creator of online tutorials for Microsoft technologies, your controls helped to provide a rich user experience. I wanted a look and feel like a Windows Store app and the Tiles are useful for that.

We're using the file formats and Windows/JavaScript list controls a lot. They're fast, easy to use, and the documentation is good and contains examples. Tickets with questions or suggestions were answered within a day, so we're happy to use the Syncfusion libraries.
