Rich Cross-Platform Desktop Applications Using Open-Source Titanium
Looking back, I wish that Titanium had already existed when my client asked me to do that project to store voice files. It would have saved me a lot of trouble fiddling with other solutions that couldn't truly satisfy the requirements of real, rich desktop development.
The good thing is that Titanium already is here, ready for action. You can download the SDK now, play with Titanium and join in on the community discussions to learn more about it.
Yes, Titanium might be a relatively new project. However, with the rapid rate of development I've seen so far, I'm planning to use Titanium to power the next generation of better, and certainly more powerful, desktop applications.
