editor's review



Appcelerator Titanium SDK is a Java-based software development kit that allows developers to build native applications for a wide array of operating systems and devices at high speed.

What sets Appcelerator Titanium SDK apart from the crowd is its support for almost all platforms marketed today, providing a cost-effective development solution.

As opposed to other SDKs that promote purpose-oriented development platforms, Appcelerator came up with an environment that satisfies all needs.

It is a cross-platform SDK, available for Windows, Mac and Linux, often compared to Adobe’s Air SDK because of its reliability. Its open source attribute makes it available for use inside corporate environments.

The program includes support for a variety of web technologies, including HTML, Javascript, CSS, PHP, Ruby and Python and jQuery, to name just a few, and is highly extensible, enabling programmers to add support for other scripting languages.

The SDK includes Titanium Studio, a development platform inspired by Eclipse that delivers a set of tools for building, testing, packaging and publishing software for various devices and operating systems.

All your projects can be managed from the same interface, with the built-in emulator providing an accurate preview of the output application. There’s also the possibility to develop cloud-connected apps through Titanium Cloud Services, which is integrated in the IDE.

On an ending note, Appcelerator Titanium SDK consists of a very rich suite of tools that aim to assist developers in writing applications that will run on OSes such as Windows, Mac OSX and Linux and devices like iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, all from the same environment.
