This Week in Titanium Mobile Development: 24 Oct 2011

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

News

Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) was announced. This doesn’t affect Appcelerator directly, but Appcelerator did post an article on Google’s new Android SDK Tools revision 14

The big news today was Appcelerator’s acquisition of Particle Code. Tech Crunch has a really good story on it. Reading between the lines on the appcelerant blog, it seems like a talent grab more than a platform play.

Szymon Machajewski posted a really cool presentation on Teaching Mobile Development with Titanium Appcelerator in Higher Ed with some awesome videos. Check it out.

Learning Titanium posted some interviews about Titanium Meetups around the world including the Australia meetups a couple weeks ago.

Tips

Tony Lukasavage continues the weekly Forging Titanium video tutorial series with Titanium & Underscore.js

iOS5 has ‘depricated’ the UDID method. Appcelerator has blogged about the new way they UDID (as well as how you can keep the old way a little longer.)

Pinehead.tv keeps cranking out the training videos. This time, it is SQLite: the basics.

Apps

Bus Live London has realtime departure information right on your iPhone. Cool use of the technology.

Social Loyalty Platform PunchTab Releases New iOS App PunchBowl built with Titanium.
