Appcelerator said today it has launched support for iPad with a new Titanium Tablet SDK.
Titanium Tablet will allow developers to build native iPad applications that feature native performance, user interfaces and access to iPads capabilities. Appcelerator estimates developers can save up to 80 percent of the time it takes to develop an iPad application using Titanium compared to writing an application in Objective-C.
Titanium Tablet will be freely available within Titanium, which is licensed under the Apache 2 open source license.
“Appcelerator is synonymous with native application development. Our customers place a premium on delivering applications with native performance, native user interface design, and native access to the underlying device capabilities,” explained Jeff Haynie, CEO, Appcelerator.
“We’re pleased to enable our 35,000 web developers to build native iPad applications with the full complement of Apple’s iPad capabilities.”
