Advantages of Appcelerator Titanium Platform:
Cross-platform mobile development support
Faster than other Mobile application framework
TITANIUM helps in developing mobile applications 70 times faster than other mobile
application framework available in the market. This framework helps in developing mobileapps in much less time as compared to others.
TITANIUM is an important tool to develop different web based applications including e-books, mobile applications and other business applications
Look and feel
The look and feel of a Titanium application, using common UI widgets of the platform is an added advantage.
Some Limitations of the Titanium mobile application development:
Extending to other platforms
The Titanium platform is only available for the iOS, Android platforms and the web. To implement the Titanium API on new platforms like the upcoming Windows 8 is an immense undertaking.
Non-native user experience
The performance and feel of UI widget sets that Titanium provides need more work. They do not feel similar to the native controls offered by their SDKs.
Sub-optimal API implementation
As the layer of abstraction offered by Titanium is large, sub-optimal API implementation remains in its internal framework. Optimizing the core user interface components remains the major engineering task for its developers.
Huge learning curve
A comprehensive knowledge of Titanium’s architecture and the environment is required to effectively integrate an innovative native control or API. High level guides for module developers were improved to a great extent but still need to be worked upon.
