Tomasz Cielecki: New MvvmCross plugin + new iOS view ports

It has been a busy couple of weeks and the result of this is now available to all of you.

ALRadialMenu

Last week I released a new NuGet package called ALRadialMenu, which is a port from Swift to C# of Alex Littlejohn’s ALRadialMenu. It is simply a menu which spawns N amounts of UIButton’s in a circle around the point you want it to. It is highly configurable.
You can find the source code and instructions in the GitHub repository.

SGTabbedPager

I also released a new NuGet package called SGTabbedPager, which is mimicking a ViewPager and ViewPagerIndicator on iOS. This is a port from Swift to C# as well.
Source code and instructions are on GitHub

DeviceInfo MvvmCross plugin

This week I created a Device Information plugin for MvvmCross. I know there are some other plugins. However, not all of them covered exactly what I needed. The plan is to expand it with more device information, such as batter, storage, connectivity etc. Ideas are welcome and can be submitted as a GitHub issue on the repository.
This plugin can be found on NuGet too as Cheesebaron.MvxPlugins.DeviceInfo and targets Android, iOS and Windows 8 + Windows Phone 8.1 (universal). It should also work in the new Windows 10 UWP apps, although not tested.
