Titanium is an extensible and open environment that is used for creating cross platform mobile applications. This includes iOS, Windows, Android and Blackberry. The framework allows you to develop applications in the most flexible way owing to its rapid prototyping. Because of this feature, about 10% of smartphones worldwide run titanium-built applications.
The framework uses Java Script, Python, CSS and HTML for creating the applications. It also uses the standard user interface components such as tables, navigation bars, buttons and dialog boxes. Moreover, it uses standard device functions such as the accelorometer file systems and maps. Titanium allows you to store the data locally and supports the asynchronous module definition and the common Java Script.
Although the titanium framework is very efficient and gives very fast results, it has a few disadvantages. Its access is usually restricted for some components of the mobile operating system. The framework also offers rather limited access to some device resources such as the camera. Therefore, performance may be affected if a developer decides to use many graphics.
