Jolt Awards: Mobile Development Tools, March 04, 2014 The best tools for the nuts-and-bolts of building mobile apps.
Jolt Productivity Award: Titanium Studio
You can target mobile Web, Android, Blackberry, iOS and Tizen. (Windows Phone and Windows 8 aren't included as target platforms at present.) The project structure makes it easy for you to organize the assets that are specific to each different target platform. Titanium Studio provides seamless integration between its Alloy MVC framework and the Eclipse-based IDE, with good support for the mobile development lifecycle.
As with any other MVC framework, Alloy enables the separation of the user interface, business logic, and data model for the apps. The ability to run and debug your mobile apps in a browser before you deploy to your mobile devices increases your productivity, especially with apps that are data-oriented and don't require much interaction with the device's specific features.
