Appcelerator Now Offers Cloud Services and Mobile Web SDK Appcelerator, a leading cross-platform development tools company has announced the release of its flagship product, Titanium 2.0 that provides developers with a single platform to develop native, hybrid and mobile web applications along with the release of the Appcelerator Cloud Services, that makes it dead simple for mobile applications to integrate cloud services into their applications. Mobile applications typically interact with a number of Cloud Services to fetch and store large amounts of information.

Appcelerator Cloud Services (ACS) wants the developer to focus on their client functionality and less on the heavy lifting on the Server side.

This offering appears to be the result of a one man effort. Jacob Perkins designed his API as RESTful with JSON responses.

Grub | Help crawl it all Search is part of the fundamental infrastructure of the Internet. And, it is currently broken. Why is it broken? It is broken for the same reason that proprietary software is always broken: lack of freedom, lack of community, lack of accountability, lack of transparency.
