Appcelerator has been working together for roughly 3 years, it wasn't until this past March when the venture-backed company launched Titanium to the general public. Appcelerator's flagship product, Titanium offers a platform on which Web developers can build native mobile applications that are easily portable from one platform to another. Today Appcelerator announced the passing of several milestones as thousands of apps have been built by over 65,000 developers - including many well-known name-brand clients.Though Mountain View-based startup
Appcelerator's platform is responsible for aiding the development of over 4,000 applications across the App Store and Android Market. The company also expects to break 10,000 applications by the end of the year.
"Since the release of Appcelerator's all native platform in March, we have seen an exponential increase in the pace of application development," says CEO Jeff Haynie. "Some developers are on their sixth app in just a few months, and several have seen their applications hit the top of the charts."
Companies like eBay, NBC and Budweiser have made both inward-facing enterprise apps, and outward-facing consumer apps using Titanium. Smaller startups, like GetGlue, have also used the platform to expand their offerings to mobile devices across several platforms.
The Next Steps
Appcelerator's Scott Schwarzhoff told ReadWriteWeb that the company plans to begin bundling additional packaged features into its SDK that aren't natively provided on various mobile platforms. Many app developers want features like barcode scanners or augmented reality functionality, but these features aren't natively available across all platforms.
Boulder-based image-recognition company Occipital is working on tools like these in the augmented reality space, and recently sold it's popular barcode scanning iPhone app RedLaser to eBay. Appcelerator says it will be looking to package features like barcodes and AR into its SDK for platform agnostic development.
