BASKING RIDGE, NJ — From the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Appcelerator today announced that Verizon Wireless will team with Appcelerator’s Titanium Platform, enabling Web developers to use their JavaScript skills to develop mobile applications for Verizon Wireless customers.

Titanium is the leading platform for rapidly developing native mobile, desktop, and iPad™ applications using Web technologies. By integrating with Verizon Wireless, millions of Web developers worldwide will be able to create native mobile apps for Android and BlackBerry® and other operating systems using a single platform, and distribute and sell them through V CAST Apps, Verizon Wireless’ mobile storefront. Verizon Wireless will continue to strengthen this relationship by looking to integrate support of Verizon Wireless APIs, including SMS/MMS, location kits, assisted GPS, and device presence/status, into Titanium.

Titanium’s 90,000 plus developers worldwide publish more than 1,300 new apps per month. In addition to building apps, developers can extend the capabilities of the Titanium platform by building their own features and APIs. Recent Titanium extensions include Titanium+Geo (for geo-analytics) and Titanium+Commerce (integrated with PayPal).

“Verizon Wireless is clearly leading wireless application development in a number of ways,” says Jeff Haynie, chief executive officer of Appcelerator. “By integrating with Titanium’s open-source mobile development platform, Verizon Wireless is encouraging the huge untapped base of Web developers to create mobile apps for V CAST Apps.”

“We are always seeking outstanding partners to help our developers create successful mobile apps, and we’re excited to have Appcelerator on board,” said Todd Murphy, director, V CAST Apps at Verizon Wireless. “Appcelerator’s Titanium platform helps enable native mobile app creation at a fraction of the cost-to-market than was possible previously.”

Appcelerator’s Titanium Platform will be demonstrated on Jan. 9 and 10 at 11:30 a.m. in Verizon Wireless’ booth (#35216 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center) at CES 2011.
