Appcelerator’s platform as an integrated native, hybrid, and HTML5 web application offering
Appcelerator, an integrated mobile platform for rapidly developing native and mobile web applications using open web technologies, has entered into an agreement to acquire Particle Code, the DEMO God mobile gaming and HTML5 development platform.
With the Particle Code’s acquisition, Appcelerator is expected to expand its platform as the first mobile platform to offer an integrated native, hybrid, and HTML5 web application offering.
The move will enable Appcelerator to offer both web and native app development from a singular code base to developers in every app category.
Appcelerator’s iOS, Android, and HTML5 core platform group in Mountain View will be joined by the Particle Code team.
The Particle Code acquisition allows Appcelerator to fast-track the build out of its open source flagship platform, Appcelerator Titanium, beyond native iOS and Android mobile applications and into HTML5 mobile web and gaming.
Appcelerator CEO Jeff Haynie said the Particle Code acquisition is a big win for mobile developers across the board.
"As fragmentation among proprietary mobile vendors increases, Appcelerator offers an open source, integrated mobile platform as a better approach for unifying cross-platform native and HTML5 mobile web development," Haynie said.
Particle Code CEO Galia Benartzi said game and rich media developers are notoriously picky about performance, demanding that apps deliver a first-class experience on every device.
"We’re excited to bring these technical capabilities to Appcelerator and help Titanium go for the win in this disruptive space," said Benartzi.
The acquisition is the second this year for Appcelerator following its acquisition of Aptana in January.
