This Week in Titanium Mobile: 18 July 2011

This is all the Titanium Mobile news I’ve gathered from the Twittersphere and Interwebs for the past two weeks.

News

Appcelerator’s VP Marketing Scott Schwarzhoff gives a 60 minute video interview on How to develop your mobile strategy over at untether.tv.

Appcelerator has announced Titanium Marketplace – where you can buy and sell all Titanium extensions … things like native UI/design elements, templates, modules, and frameworks. Signup for the beta now.

The “Building Native Mobile Apps with Titanium” training video is now free.

Tips

The guys over at the6hours.com have put up some code for a jQuery inspired http wrapper call Tijax.

pec1985 has shared some beta code and a video example of a ExpandableTextArea module. Looks promising.

Stephen G shared the presentation he gave at florida.net on Slideshare. Worth looking at if you are looking for slide inspiration.

CPSAD-Peter has a nice blog post on writing universal apps and some of the things you should (and shouldn’t) do.

The guys as CodeBoxed are keeping a Titanium Tips section up to date. Go subscribe to it. They also updated their Image Gallery to work on iPad. Nice.
