This Week in Titanium Mobile: 20 June 2011

This is all the Titanium Mobile news I’ve gathered from the Twittersphere and Interwebs this week.


The big news was the launch of Titanium Studio and Titanium Mobile 1.7.  It got press from read write web and infoq as well as some smaller blogs and media:

With the release of Titanium Studio, Appcelerator (for the first time) enables features based on your subscription.  The ‘premium’ version of Studio (with debugging) is only available with an Indie subscription or above.  This has caused a bit of reaction in the community.
