This Week in Titanium Mobile: 29 Aug 2011

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


A couple things from Appcelerator:

The Titanium Community project will now act as a ‘clearing house’ for new Q&A tickets for Titanium bugs and issues. This will help clarify issues before they get to the core developers. You can setup an account if you are interested.

Titanium also continued their ‘Meet Platform Evangelist’ series with info on Aaron Saunders and Tony Lukasavage. Worth a read – both of them are VERY active in the community.


Speaking of Tony and Aaron, they have been buzy posting on the Appcelerator Blog. Tony covers Android Intents. (part 1 and part 2) Good reading if you are not familiar with Android development and some of the differences to iOS. Aaron gave a quickie on Facebook Album Covers.

Tony also posted a preview of his “Knuckle Head” app migration from Android to iPhone on his own blog. I hope he keeps us informed as he goes through the process.

Kevin Whinnery continued his ‘Forging Titanium’ series with a video on creating Custom UI Components. If you are just starting out with Titanium Mobile, this is great information.

Pinehead.TV has posted a 15 minute video introduction to Titanium Studio. Good to see it getting additional exposure.


The most promoted App this week allows people in Surrey (UK) to find the local police. After the recent unrest in the UK, it is no wonder this got some press.

Who wants to hunt pirates? No really – real pirates! Check out the Pirate Hunter mobile App.

A Bloodborne Pathogens Reference on both Android and iTunes.

Pocket Health for iOS by CSC offers information from the NHS website.

Zendit allows you to share and store your photos and videos.
