Appcelerator combines an IDE, an SDK, multiple frameworks, and back-end cloud services into an enterprise-level system for mobile development. The Titanium SDK lets you develop native, hybrid, and mobile web applications from a single codebase, with between 60 and 90 percent code reuse across device platforms. It’s complemented by Hyperloop, which allows the incorporation of third-party native libraries and offersdirect access to every iOS and Android API using JavaScript, and by App Designer, which enables drag-and-drop design and development of apps for iOS, Android, and Windows.

API Builder combines a framework for building mobile APIs with an elastically scalable cloud service for running them. There are connectors for Salesforce, Microsoft Azure, MySQL, Mongo DB, Box, Swagger, and others. Appcelerator also provides ready-made back-end services for geolocation, photo storage, authentication, key value pair storage, and others.

Appcelerator offers free access to the Titanium SDK, API Builder and basic analytics, charging $99 per seat per month for access to collaboration tools, App Designer, App Preview, and a longer analytics history. Additional features are available in an costlier Enterprise package.
