Titanium Beta Release Now Offers an Integrated Platform for Creating, Testing and Commercializing Mobile and Desktop Applications on a Single Platform
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA–(Marketwire – June 8, 2009) – AppceleratorÂ®, a leading provider of open source technologies for developing, testing, and commercializing mobile, desktop, and web applications, today announced the availability of the beta version of its flagship Appcelerator Titaniumâ„¢ platform. The beta update includes new mobile functionality that allows developers to use the Web capabilities they already have to develop rich applications for both iPhoneâ„¢ and Androidâ„¢ mobile devices.
As customers increasingly look to more functional devices to stay connected and informed, developers must be able to quickly adjust to the demands of the new platforms required to serve these users. Titanium addresses this need by delivering a single platform for mobile, desktop, and web development. Once built with Titanium, applications can be tested, packaged, distributed and analyzed through Appcelerator Network, a cloud-based suite of services for commercializing Titanium-based applications.
“The smartphone market is set to grow by a CAGR of 19.5% through to 2014 and smartphones will account for 29% of the total global handset market. This represents a huge opportunity for both mobile and web application developers to address this rapidly growing market,” said Adam Leach, principal analyst with Ovum.
“Consumers are devouring mobile applications as fast as developers can create them, but the real mobile tidal wave will hit when millions of Web developers are able to write mobile applications without having to learn a new programming language,” said Jeff Haynie, CEO of Appcelerator. “Our commitment is to ensure that Web developers are in the driver’s seat when it comes to taking advantage of these new market opportunities.”
Appcelerator will be showcasing the beta release of Titanium and its new mobile features at the “Titanium Beta Launch Party” on Tuesday, June 9 after Apple’s WWDC from 6 to 9 PM at Jillian’s in San Francisco. For more information about the party, please visit: http://bit.ly/5YAv.
