Another one of our follow up and take away pieces from WES 2010 was the introduction of Appcelerator's Titanium Mobile Beta for BlackBerry. While that may not mean much to everyone, it surely means something to those out there that are interested in developing BlackBerry applications. Titanium Mobile offers developers that may not have the knowledge of Java and Objective-C a chance to still create amazing, native applications.
"Many of our developers, large and small have been eagerly anticipating BlackBerry support,” said Jeff Haynie, CEO of Appcelerator. “With the BlackBerry Beta, Titanium developers gain a full-featured, rich environment for creating native apps that leverage BlackBerry’s enhanced smartphone capabilities. We are delighted to offer Titanium developers native support for yet another platform on which to showcase their innovative apps.”
The Titanium beta is currently accepting applications from now, up until May 21st. The first of many beta releases will be made available as early as June 1st. If you've always had an interest in building an application but lived in fear of having to use the oft noted as being difficult RIM developer tools this may be something you'll want to check out. With tools like this becoming available, I'm sure even Kevin could develop an app.
