Web developers already use Appcelerator’s Titanium platform to create rich native mobile apps for other smartphones including iPhone and Android, as well as desktop apps across PC, Mac and Linux, using familiar HTML and CSS.
According to an Appcelerator March 2010 survey, developer interest in creating applications for BlackBerry grew two-fold to 43%. In another earlier Appcelerator January 2010 survey, developers indicated increasing interest in building enterprise-type applications, such as business and productivity apps.
