Appcelerator Attracts Developers For iPad

Appcelerator said today that nearly 1,000 new developers signed up after the company announced its cross-platform product, Appcelerator Titanium, would support Apple’s iPad starting in February.

Titanium allows web developers to use industry-standard, open-source Web technologies such as Javascript, HTML, and CSS to quickly build rich, fully native applications that run on the iPad, iPhone, Android, PC, Macintosh, and Linux platforms from a single code base.

“Successful iPad applications that really stand apart will take advantage of the new user interface and other native features that make the device distinct from the iPhone and Mac,” said Jeff Haynie, CEO of Appcelerator.

“Applications in the media, entertainment, business, social networking, and education spaces will particularly benefit from the iPad’s enhanced user experience capabilities, and we plan to bundle all of that native functionality into Titanium.”
