Titanium 1.0 Launches: Build Native Apps for Desktop, Mobile & iPad

first_imgThe Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts center_img sarah perez Tags:#mobile#Product Reviews#web Today Appcelerator is launching version 1.0 of their Titanium app-building system which allows developers to build mobile and desktop applications using standard web technologies like HTML, JavaScript and CSS. In addition to supporting desktop platforms like PC, Mac, and Linux, the new version of Titanium now supports both iPhone and Android with RIM Blackberry and Apple iPad support just around the corner. Unlike other DIY toolkits that promise mobile apps without needing to know code, Titanium lets web developers leverage their existing skills to build native mobile applications that do anything any app built using that platform’s specific technologies could, like access the phone’s camera or stream video, for example. What’s New Titanium’s code base has been improved over the past few months resulting in a number of upgrades to performance. Notes the company, “load times are under 3 seconds, down from 10-20 seconds, transitions between pages are instantaneous and processing speed has improved five-fold.” They’ve additionally added more features to offer over 100 native UI controls, native 2D/3D animation capabilities and data and media presentation capabilities. With these new improvements, developers can now build branded apps, casual games and augmented reality applications that run on any of the supported platforms. Why Titanium?When asked to explain what really made Titanium different than the other app-building services out there, the company’s VP of Marketing, Scott Schwarzhoff explained that many of its competitors were simply offering web apps disguised as native apps as opposed to offering the real deal. Every other offering is not even close, he says. “Native user interface (over *100* native APIs)? We’re the only provider. Push notifications? We’re it. Native maps? Same thing. Facebook Connect? We’re the only one. Application analytics? That’s us. Augmented reality? Ditto. The list goes on and on.”Since June of last year, the Titanium platform has attracted over 27,000 developers thanks to what the company has dubbed their “native advantage.” Described here on the company’s website, this includes support for things like native controls, location-based services, social sharing, HTML5, online or on-device databases, integrated analytics, rich multimedia and more. With the launch of the iPad only weeks away, Appcelerator is promising support for Apple’s new slate device by the third week of March. Blackberry support will follow in May/June. Titanium’s Community edition will be completely free while a pro version offers premium support, analytics and beta access to new versions.Note: After this post was published, Appcelerator rival Rhomobile got in touch. They took issue with some of Appcelerator’s statements. Specifically, they wanted it to be known that Rhomobile’s Rhodes supports push as well as native mapping and Rhodes was the first native smartphone app development framework to do so. Also of note, they claim Rhomobile supports native UI in the only way that is portable. If you want to port to other platforms, Appcelerator’s methods do not work they said.last_img read more

What Can an App Do With Your Twitter Account? New Login Screen Will (Sort of) Tell You

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Twitter has taken to redesigning the OAuth screen – the screen you see whenever you decide to login to an application using your Twitter account – in an attempt to better show what you are agreeing to when you hit the “Allow,” err, “Authorize app” button.Twitter developer advocate Matt Harris announced on the developer Google group this afternoon that they were working on refreshing the screen to offer “better clarity about what an application can see and do with an account.” Though it might be better than before, it’s still missing one key thing – the fact that the app can access your DMs.If you’ve ever wondered what you’re signing up for when you click that button – whatever it will be called in the end – it’s now made a bit more explicit. As you can see from the image, giving an application access to your Twitter account allows that app to read tweets from your timeline, see who you follow, follow accounts, update your profile and post tweets. Twitter developer Orian Marx points out, however, that a few key permissions are omitted from this screen: the ability to unfollow users and, more importantly, access their private DMs.“Obviously it’s been to everyone’s benefit who has built apps that rely on OAuth up to this point that there has been specific mentioning of access to DMs as this would likely turn off a lot of people from granting access to experimental apps,” writes Marx. “The reality is that the OAuth system needs finer-grained controls.”While Facebook allows developers to select what content to request authorization for, with Twitter it’s all or none. By giving a Twitter app access to your account, that includes everything mentioned above – including those DMs that you might have thought were totally private. This isn’t the first we’ve heard of this – GigaOm’s Mathew Ingram pointed out last October that DMs aren’t exactly private, but it seems notable that this fact might not show up on the new login screen. Or maybe they will. Harris responds to Marx on the developer list, writing “This is a first release of these pages to get a feel for if they are going in the right direction. We tried to select a number of phrases that explain the access that’s being granted to an application but that are also easy to understand. I think there will always be some that don’t make it, but there are others, like the ones you raise, which would help aid transparency more.”Here’s hoping that either users are made explicitly aware that their DMs are not exactly private or that developers are given the granular security permissions necessary to say “No, we don’t want access to that.” Or both.Image via @abraham’s Picassa.

Islam Slimani scores again as Leicester City beat Porto in Champions League

first_imgLeicester City forgot their domestic struggles to secure a second successive Champions League victory as Islam Slimani tormented a familiar foe by grabbing the only goal in a 1-0 win over Porto on Tuesday. (Tottenham beat CSKA Moscow | Dortmund hold Real Madrid)Leicester sit top of Group G with six points after Slimani headed powerfully home from a Riyad Mahrez cross in the first half for his sixth goal in his last four matches against Porto, having joined Leicester from Sporting Lisbon in August.It was the first time Leicester had tasted Champions League football at home and they came into the game on the back of a 4-1 defeat to Manchester United and a run of poor form in the Premier League, but they looked comfortable throughout against Porto.The visitors, who have one point from their opening two group games, did manage to rattle the post late on through Jesus Corona, but they were unable to exert sufficient pressure as they failed to win for the 17th time in England.”We played with our spirit tonight,” Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri said as his team stayed two points clear of FC Copenhagen at the top of the group.”The last pass wasn’t always there, but Riyad Mahrez made one fantastic pass for Slimani.”Leicester may be Champions League novices but in Slimani, the English side had a player who knew their experienced Portuguese opponents well and had enjoyed remarkable success against them.He was signed from their rivals Sporting having scored freely against Porto in recent meetings and he was causing them trouble soon after kick off at the King Power stadium.advertisementThe Algerian served warning when he headed a Marc Albrighton free kick straight at Porto keeper Iker Casillas after 11 minutes but he was more clinical 14 minutes later.Mahrez controlled a cross-field pass superbly, before shifting the ball out of his feet and curling a perfect cross into the path of Slimani who launched himself in front of the defender to head home.It was his third goal in four games for Leicester, all of which have been headers.Porto, who had looked sprightly in the opening minutes, seemed deflated, although a curling free kick from Miguel Layun that drifted just wide came close to levelling the encounter 10 minutes before halftime.There were few real chances after the break with Mahrez having an early effort pushed wide by Casillas before Porto began to exert some pressure late on as Leicester sat back and sought to hit them on the counter.Despite having a lot of the ball, Porto created little until the 84th minute when a rifled effort from substitute Corona was deflected against the post and away to safety.last_img read more
