Hack of The Week

In light of this weeks topic, Erick talks about one of his first Titanium project. Started out as a fun project to get to know Titanium and ended up being a very useful picture frame.

Need To Know

  • Use on both Windows and Mac OSX
    • NEED Mac for iOS apps.
  • Pros / Cons
    • Pro: one code base multi platform
    • Pro: JS [lang of the web] – you can start now
    • Pro: can be extended to include latest SDK features
    • Con: less control on system level things [mem]
    • Con: native sdk moves faster than Ti
    • Con: only iOS and Android for now [free]

How Do I Use It
