What do you think of Axway Appcelerator?

What is our primary use case?

I was searching for a reliable tool to develop a native mobile app for both Android and iOS. I found Axway Appcelerator packed with awesome features, that it was easy to learn and easy to build cross-platform.

Using the same web technology to develop cross-platform native apps. Cloud-based one-click app build system.

What needs improvement?

It would be awesome if they would work on improving the speed of the app building process.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

While compiling, it used to break sometimes and I would have to recompile.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is not so good if you have a complex…

What do you think of Axway Appcelerator?

What is our primary use case?

Our primary work using this framework is in developing small mobile applications, both enterprise and other.

How has it helped my organization?

Before using it, configuring Android and iOS platforms on a new machine was a big task. Now, it is easy.

What is most valuable?

It is easy to create builds and distribution is very easy. The editor is very friendly.

What needs improvement?

It has hung many times during login and use. Also, it needs a little enhancing for debugging for Android apps.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What other advice do I have?

I rate it at seven out of 10, but if the above issues were fixed it would be a nine.

What is most valuable?

This product is a powerful, cross-platform application development platform. It allows users to leverage existing HTML and javascript skills and it extends them to support platform-specific features. The product has a common codebase for multiple device platforms, but it is able to specialize wherever needed.

What needs improvement?

Unlike PhoneGap Titanium, this product relies heavily on the existing Android ADK or iOS SDKs. This makes for a more complicated installation process that is not always straightforward. Like PhoneGap, apps are obviously running within the browser control. Because of this, there is some loss in native experience and fidelity.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, the product is a very good development platform, once you get over the setup. It has great resources to help development; training material and samples are available for almost any scenario. Active development of the platform means new features are added and issues are addressed in a timely manner.

What is most valuable?

* One of the main advantages I look for with titanium is its cross platform development (iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, Windows, Linux and OS X). * Single code base for mutli platforms so that managing an application becomes easier. * It is open source. * Offers flexibility as it using JavaScript.

What needs improvement?

* Documentation is shoddy and outdated. * API calls have not been brushed up. * Company support isn't all that great. * Outdated videos have not been removed from the tutorial page, which are certainly, to some level, misleading to learning developers. * Recently apple rejected an application of my co-worker for making private api calls (because apple does not allow you to make private api calls)… more »

What other advice do I have?

Basically, titanium converts your javascript, html, and css code to native code. I would suggest it if you have to make a cross platform small application, but if you are looking for an enterprise application I would suggest you go for a native application.

What is Axway Appcelerator?

Appcelerator Titanium allows you to deliver an immersive user experience at a fraction of the time, but with the same results, of native platforms. Titanium handles device and OS compatibility you build amazing apps.
