A cross-platform based hybrid app development API

What do you like best?

Appcelerator Titanium is cross-platform based hybrid app development API. It allows developers to write their apps in JavaScript, which is then complied for each supported platform. Using APIs that interface directly with each platform’s native APIs, it provides a native look-and-feel plus native performance.

What I likes the most is:

- Easy and quick development for a web developer (as it is written using JavaScript, TSS - which very much similar to css)

- Extensive support with strong API

- Supports Android and iOS (which is quite very useful)

- Re-usability of code, while converting it from one platform to other with small small UI tweaks

What do you dislike?

Although it is easy to develop, but things which worries is:

- Memory leakage issue (there is huge memory issue, you have to manually handle it)

- Rich and advance UI elements support (it doesn't provides more advanced UI elements)

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is really good to start with in order to build cross-platform development. Although there are some limitation but from my experience I am saying like: it is improving alot from one after one releases and trying to reach the users requirement.

And as compare to other cross-platform API like PhoneGap; I found Appcelerator Titanium is more reach.

Although each of the cross-development platforms above have their individual strengths and weaknesses. Which one you choose as an individual or organization depends on your requirements for app performance, look-and-feel

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Each of the cross-development platforms above have their individual strengths and weaknesses. None is a clear winner over the other yet.

Which one you choose as an individual or organization depends on your requirements for app performance, look-and-feel and how comfortable your current development staff is with a particular language or IDE. You should also take into account testability and the level of code reuse you wish to obtain.

Quick cross platform option.

What do you like best?

Single language for cross platform apps. Single source code, with minor tweaks. Integrates well with source control. Smooth prototype to production. I am able to make a change and see it immediately on the live view, I don't have to refresh, just "Save". The ability to use a language like JS allows a quick build and deploy. If I have a question the community base of JS allows me to look around and find my answer relatively quickly.

What do you dislike?

IDE can be slow. Updates didn't always work. Since the acquisition by Axway some added stability has improved. Some of the UI build features which come standard in other IDE's are only available in the higher tiers, while this was not a deal breaker because of LiveView, it is something that can be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try. It is not a hybrid. The speed from prototype to final product is smoother and easier than any other multi-platform system I have used.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Single code base for cross platform applications. With small differences both major platforms can be built quickly with native look and feel. The live view allows a quick change to be shown quickly. If I need to make color changes, or text size changes with the customer in attendance, I can go over it quickly which allows both of us to have input on the final product. They are happy and get the app out faster.

app celerator

What do you like best?

I especially like because Its main products are the IDE Titanium , a development environment open source for coding platform applications for mobile devices, and Platform Appcelerator , a suite of software and libraries in which development is based , testing, analysis , debugging and deployment of such applications. Such products are often grouped simply under the name of Titanium or Titanium Framework

What do you dislike?

everything is excellent , nothing I dislike this app because apart from all Applications developed with this technology are based on the Javascript language, with use of an API platform itself , the interpretation of the code

Recommendations to others considering the product

100 % recommended for all general public and for people who want agility in service or app

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cross platform mobile application development

What do you like best?

One time code for developing android and IOS mobile apps.

Appcelerator team support on issues which we face and addressing them

Documents provided with concepts explanation in detail.

Sample application for reference.

What do you dislike?

UI components should be further improvised so that dependency on external modules will be reduced.

Small UI customization requires a lot of change with respect to its css attributes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For instant app building on different mobile OS then we can opt for titanium.

There is lot of support available in the market place for modules to include and use.

appcelerator team supports with the issues or any required information if we post a request.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developing a two android application one for sakai mobile[android and IOS] and other is GStandupPoker app[only android] for JIRA. which is a project and user management system.

With retrospective and resolution approach.

Right tool for the right environment - easy and fast way of getting your idea to multiple platforms.

What do you like best?

Simple and intuitive interface that helps creating the product quickly.

What do you dislike?

Every time with version upgrade we're forced to rewrite most of our projects.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should try it because just reading about it will not help you to make decision. It is pretty simple to use when setup is done. Greatest thing about the product is that you easily get your idea to app and from app you can easily get an app ported to multiple platforms and then just test them all and publish in respective app stores. That was our main drive when we decided to use Appcelerator for our portfolio projects. Currently we have two our own apps that are published both in Apple Appstore and Google Play, as well we have made an app for client that also used Appcelerator for making it available to both Apple and Google. One thing regarding porting application to multiple platforms is that you should bear in mind that by default Appcelerator is not creating fully native interfaces from scratch therefore there will be required some polishing work to make the app look like you or your designer imagined it. Of course that means that one should know a bit more that HTML and CSS because you will need to make changes in native code - in case of Apple it is in Xcode, in case of Goole - Android Studio.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We made a couple of simple apps that are easily ported in both iOS and Android.
