This Week in Titanium Mobile Development: 26 Sep 2011

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


A quiet news week with codestrong happening the beginning of the week. Appcelerator will be posting videos all the sessions for those of us who couldn’t attend. Check out the codestrong website for details. The live blogs are also available here.

DealWallet was the winner of the hackathon!

The big announcement coming out of codestrong was the Mobile Marketplace for all your development needs. TechCrunch even reported on it.

ForgedUI announced a beta of a visual drag-and-drop interface that allows for quick screen design. You can sign up for the beta at their website.


Damien Laureaux gave a tip on this blog of how to move part of your Android application to the SD card.

Kevin Whinnery continues Forging Titanium with a tutorial on how to integrate through a RESTful web service API using Twilio, a cloud-based service for adding telephony features to applications, as an example. I love that he implements the WUPHF application from The Office.

Boydlee continues sharing with the community with a url shortener module for Titanium (iOS only)

Titanium Ninja give a followup to his posting last week explaining how his FastDev for iOS works. Cool stuff.

John Kalberer add some more to his MVC framework – this time talking about routing.

I posted some demo code and a video on improving perceived performance with a large number of image views in iOS.


The only new app I came across this week was Kelloggs Fibre Tracker.

If you’ve got any news, tips, or apps I’ve missed, please leave them in the comments below!

    We had the opportunity of being at Codestrong last week, where we talked to a lot of people about a product we have dubbed GWT4Ti Mobile. The response to being able to write and debug Java code that translates to Titanium was great. I know this could fall under a blatant advertisement section, but given that there is no such section I might as well post it as a comment ;-)
