Appcelerator Teams With Verizon On Mobile App Development

Appcelerator has announced that Verizon Wireless will team with Appcelerator’s Titanium Platform, allowing web developers to use JavaScript to develop mobile apps for Verizon Wireless customers.

By integrating with Verizon Wireless, web developers worldwide will be able to create native mobile apps for Android and BlackBerry and other operating systems using a single platform, and distribute and sell them through V CAST Apps, Verizon Wireless’ mobile storefront.

“Verizon Wireless is clearly leading wireless application development in a number of ways,” says Jeff Haynie, chief executive officer of Appcelerator.  

“By integrating with Titanium’s open-source mobile development platform, Verizon Wireless is encouraging the huge untapped base of Web developers to create mobile apps for V CAST Apps.”

Titanium’s 90,000 plus developers worldwide publish more than 1,300 new apps per month.  In addition to building apps, developers can extend the capabilities of the Titanium platform by building their own features and APIs.
