Appcelerator Launches Titanium Mobile Beta

More and more web developers are earning their mobile wings. Mountain View-based Appcelerator just announced their beta release of Titanium Mobile – an open source, open standards tool that lets developers build applications with native UI elements, code compilation, device storage and geo-location APIs on both the iPhone and Android.

With Appcelerator’s new mobile offerings, web programmers can avoid the pitfalls of Objective-C or Java, and use basic Javascript, HTML, and CSS to build their apps.

Pending app store approval processes, this means companies will be faster to market as programmers are no longer required to learn new languages. Similar to the original Titanium framework, the mobile framework gives developers easy access to multiple platforms.

Unlike competitor PhoneGap, Titanium claims it is better equipped to gain entry into the iPhone and Android app stores. The company believes its tools create applications that behave, look and feel identical to native iPhone applications. The idea is that Apple will be less likely to cast Titanium applications from the garden of appland after being made in the image of its predecessors.
