Enhances transition between pages and improves processing speed to five-fold
Appcelerator has launched Titanium 1.0, which it claims to be redesigned to achieve performance on par with Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android SDKs. It has also introduced a new offering for premium support, training, and analytics.
The company said that it has more than tripled its code base to upgrade Titanium’s mobile processing engine. Load times are reduced below 3 seconds from 10-20 seconds, enhanced transition between pages and improved the processing speed to five-fold.
In addition, user experience capabilities have been increased to include over 100 native UI controls, native 2D/3D animation capabilities, and data and media presentation capabilities.
Appcelerator has launched two offerings Titanium Community, allows new developers to learn how to build native applications; and Titanium Professional, which offers developers SLA-driven support, analytics for the past six months, and membership in Appcelerator’s beta preview program for future releases such as iPad and Blackberry
According to Appcelerator, the analytics provides developers insights into how apps are performing, while offering custom event tracking; and offers support with rapid updates, bug fixes and hot patches to resolve issues quickly.
The company has also launched Developer Center, which features documentation, getting started guides, code examples and a new training course curriculum for Titanium developers.
Jeff Haynie, CEO of Appcelerator, said: “After being in market 6 months, we realised that the user experience needs to be at parity with native development platforms. Anything less is a non-starter. We are pleased to be the first and only cross-platform solution to run on par with native applications, but with the development speed that comes from using web technologies.”
